It’s official and it is true, Bar Tini has the best bar food in Melbourne according to the judges of Time Out. They spent hundreds of hours scouring the bars of Melbourne to find the best of the best. We thank them for all the hard hours they spent undertaking this arduous task. We put our success down to the time honoured tradition of Spanish bodega food. Imagine a bloke selling wine from barrels in the back alleys of the towns and cities of Spain. People try the wine and ask for a snack. Working by himself all he has to offer is some bread and cheese. Over a while he adds to this some cured meats and cured fish. He might have some bread on which he puts some cooked fish and roasted capsicum sauce. Over the years the tradition builds. Some of the best bars in Spain today were once bodegas, bars like Quimet y Quimet (Barcelona) and Casa Manteca (Cadiz). That’s what Bar Tini is about. Beautiful, simple food done well. And of course the wine, beer, sherry, and vermouth! Congratulations to equipo Bar Tini.
