Delicious tapas and imaginative cocktails make this a killer neighbourhood spot that you have to visit!
Simply put, full flavour Pan Asian cuisine is what The Swing does best. With a selection of carefully crafted dishes that contrast textures and taste to delight the senses, we were seriously impressed by the food on offer.
A few highlights included the Miso Aubergine with yuzu, sesame and crunchy spring onion that was incredibly fragrant and moreish (we finished it way too quickly!), and the K-Buffalo Wings which we’re stickyfingerlicking good! The sauce on these bad-boys was the stuff of legend and honestly, we are still dreaming about it a few weeks later!
The cocktails on offer are an imaginative twist on classics created by owner Arjun Sahi who really knows his way around a bar. We visited to try the limited edition winner of the MONIN BarBarista Challenge, The Swinging Gentleman which was created from scratch in under 30 minutes by Arjun partnered with Anthony Khouri of The Gentleman Baristas. The drink is a complex and rich mix of Ron de Jeremy Rum, Cold Brew Coffee, Campari and MONIN Orange Spritz Syrup – it’s basically the best Negroni twist you’ll ever have, trust us 😉
The whole experience gave us huge satisfied bellies and heart eye emoji faces so if that sounds like something you want in your life then head to West Hampstead and get Swingin’!
