Her Name Is Lola: Las Tapas De Lola | Episode 5 | Chew The Fat

We’ve talked to producers, tour guides, distillers and brewers so far in the first few episodes of Chew The Fat, now we’re talking to our first restaurateur. Actually, a pair of restaurateurs.

Positioned on arguably the casual restaurant highway of Dublin running from Dame Street straight to Rathmines, Anna Cabrera and Vanessa Murphy are right in the middle of it all with their traditional Spanish neighbourhood restaurant and bar.

We’ve already written about how special and important this place is personally to us – it was where we shared our last supper of sorts with some of our closest friends before moving to London – and we’ve long been fans of this little slice of Spain in the centre of Dublin, a stone’s throw from Stephen’s Green.

We ask them all about how they got their inspiration to open the best Spanish restaurant in Dublin; what some of their most iconic dishes are; what the challenges over the past five years have been; and whether Lola will get a little sister of one these days…
