Porta tapas bar in Altrincham is one of our favourite restaurants. The menu is packed with delectable small plates such as gooey arancini, slow-cooked ox cheek with cumin seeds and pickled walnuts and baked goats cheese with slices of fresh orange and lashings of local honey (pictured). Choose from a clutch of fine wines, dry sherries and craft beers with a great atmosphere as standard. The tapas bar is owned by Joe and Ben Wright, who also run the Michelin Bib Gourmand Joseph Benjamin in Chester and the original branch of Porta. The third branch of Porta opened at the start of December too, in a turn of the century banking hall off Chapel Street in Bexley Square in Salford. There are no reservations, so just pop in and give it a go. Watch this space for a review.
