INTERNATIONAL CUISINE

SPANISH TAPAS, NORTH AFRICAN TAGINES, JAMAICAN SPECIALITIES AND GREAT CURRIES - TAKE A TRIP AROUND THE WORLD WITHOUT LEAVING BS3

EL RINCON

Authentic Spanish bar where you can eat proper tapas that will remind you of a Mediterranean holiday. Small but perfectly formed, as the Renault advert used to say. The lack of space means you'll get to know your neighbours pretty well.

SOUK KITCHEN

A Bedminster success story now exported to Clifton, where a second branch opened in 2016. You'll need to book well in advance to get a weekend table here due to the high quality of the food which has attracted a big following locally. Try the flatbread starter, the dips will open your taste buds up to previously untried experiences.

JASPER'S JAMAICAN DINER

A taste of Jamaica in the heart of Bedminster, Jaspers serves Caribbean favourites such as jerk chicken and pork, all accompanied by the ever-popular rice and peas. You're sure of a friendly welcome here.

THALI CAFE

We had to wait for this popular Bristol mini chain to move to BS3 but it was worth it. It's not your typical curry house, serving simple but exotic food with a selection of delicious dishes delivered to your table on one steel dish. Plenty of households across the city have their Thali tins, which you can take down and fill with food to enjoy at home.
