On a recent visit we discovered they have undergone a significant re-furb. Gone are the dark stone walls and metal (uncomfortable) chairs. Instead they have gone all post-modern minimalism with white wooden chairs and tables and upholstered white panels mounted onto the walls. Overall I don't like the new look--the white minimalism feels out-of-place in the dark moody basement and sits incongruously with the whole concept of sunny siesta-ing sangria-soaked Spain.

Reassuringly though, the tapas is still as good as ever. I neglected to bring the camera on that occasion but less than a week later I was back again--this time coincedentally with beloved camera!
The reason for this impromptu visit was the just-walking-past discovery that Miro now serve chocolate con churros--that Spanish breakfast institution which is heaven for both chocaholics and dieticians! Not only did the Spaniards bless us with tapas and sangria, but they have also given us mandate to commence cocoa consumption as soon as the sun hits our sleep-encrusted eye.
The churros were freshly fried, light and fluffy and a pleasing golden brown. Dipping these sugar-encrusted batons into warm, thick, creamy Spanish hot chocolate was toe-curling to say the least! Perfect for winter, breakfast, post-movie--hell, anytime--get thee to Miro and get that warm-tummy feeling!
