King Tea owes its name to the original snack bar that occupied the building when Paddington Central was still a tram depot. But now it’s tapas, not tea, that’s on the menu.

The Latrobe Terrace venue is one open space, with exposed wooden rafters and pared-back finishings that highlight its original brickwork. The bar and open kitchen run along the length of the space, facing rows of shared bench seating.

It has a social, dining-hall feel and is by the same team behind Hai-Hai Ramen and Remy’s.

King Tea’s Spanish fare is meant for sharing – think patatas bravas, crispy pork belly, grilled octopus, croquettes and cured meats. To emulate southern Spain’s tapas tradition, in which food is covered by the price of a drink, on Friday afternoons the venue provides free simple snacks for “tapas hour” from 4pm to 6pm.

There’s a Spanish-heavy wine list and a selection of beers and cocktails.
