Love authentic Spanish tapas? Then head out of the city centre and get acquainted with Chorltons San Juan. This cosy restaurant brings to mind nothing so much as a back street Barcelona tapas bar, the kind of place where the locals eat, with chorizo swathed in rich, red wine sauce, ideal for schlurping with white baguette as well as patatas bravas, battered prawns and summer beers on chilled draught. Zingy boquerones and a dense, potato-stacked torilla complete the palate. And the atmospheres a treat too: share food on tiny, wobbly tables back-to-back with your co-diners. Wines, as in Spain, are best chosen red.
