Ambience & Interior

All Munching away

All Munching away

From the outside, Opera tavern just looks like any other pubs in Covent Garden, however once you enter it, you realize how chic it is. Thehe bar is downstairs and we were led upstairs to the dining area. Atmosphere is unpretentious, with everyone laughing out loud, this is perfect place to chill with friends and even celebrate your birthday here.

Verdict

All the foodies have been raving about their Mini Ibérico Pork and Foie Gras Burger. I am a slave for iberico pork, and I live for foie gras, so how can I miss this chance to stuff my face. It was the best burger ever! It’s small, bite size, but it is made fresh from the grill, with the juices dripping down.  The foie gars taste is rich and the iberico pork is juicy as hell! I even had to reorder.  It is to die for.  I did really like the other dishes too, but I have been home dreaming about these burgers and already been back twice.  The scallops was gorgeous too.  all teh dishes are above average and the price is reasonable which i love about that for a poor student like me.  

Would I go back again? YES, I have already
