Fodor's Expert Review Tía Pol

$$ Chelsea Spanish

It may be sardine-can small, narrow, and dark, but that doesn't stop this popular tapas bar from being packed most nights. This is one of the best tapas spots in town, with a welcoming vibe, a dozen reasonably priced Spanish wines by the glass (and plenty of great bottles), and charm to spare. One of the most original tapas has become a signature here: bittersweet chocolate smeared on a baguette disc and topped with salty Spanish chorizo. Patatas bravas (rough-cut potatoes served with spicy aioli) are so addictive, you won't want to share them. The pork loin, piquillo pepper, and mild tetilla cheese sandwich is scrumptious, and so is the Galician octopus terrine.
