Jason O'Brien wanted to bring his love of quality tapas to London and, in 2006, Donde Tapas first opened its doors in Honor Oak Park. The installation of a charcoal oven meant that Donde's menu would be infused with all of the delicious flavours and textures that you would hope to enjoy from Spanish style fish, vegetables, meats and breads.
It was important to Jason that Donde not only try and emulate those authentic Spanish dishes but that it also carries its own signature identity. And it's that very identity that brought Donde to Boxpark Croydon.
Donde isn't just about authentic ingredients and bold flavours, it's also about offering customers both a warm and inviting place to sit, unwind, socialise and enjoy a genuine and, above all, affordable menu.
There's a lot happening on that menu as well. A fusion of fresh ingredients really brings Donde's menu to life and there's something for every palate. Customers can enjoy the strong flavours of a chicken paella or the appetising and rich pork cheeks with sobresada and sherry. There's even delicious desserts for those with a sweet tooth. A personal favourite is the churros with chocolate sauce! They're a must have.
Even the simplest of dishes is done to perfection. A really popular take-out option for diners on the move is the delectable patatas bravas. And that's one of the best things about tapas - the selection and the simplicity. Whether you choose to dine in, take out or order through Deliveroo, you can enjoy a variety of tasty Spanish dishes that are perfect for dining solo or sharing with friends.
Donde's menu also includes a full-bodied and refreshing selection of Spanish wine, beer and cider to enjoy by the glass or the bottle.
So, if you're looking to enjoy a Mediterranean meal at Boxpark Croydon, Donde has just what you need.
