Spanish food lovers in Austin are in luck, as there’s a new restaurant open for business. El Chipiron is spreading the love for ham, cheese, and wine from Spain, converting local nonbelievers into diehard fans with its incredible menu. Run by a husband and wife team, the duo serves authentic tapas and pintxos, perfect for sharing, in line with the spirit of Spanish culinary customs. Menu highlights include Ibérico pork with winter veggies and sweet potato; Galician-octopus terrine with piparra peppers and potato; mussels, Albariño, garlic, chorizo and bread; and half of a chicken in a pepitoria sauce, potato, arugula and apple.
Lola & Miguel love all things Spanish, mostly the incredible flavors unique to Spanish culture. They provide their customers with the best selection of Serrano ham, Ibérico ham and chorizo from wonderful artisan producers. They encourage clients to try Bomba rice, smoked pimentón and Piquillo peppers, but also premium fish preserves from Galicia and other regions of the Cantabrian coast.
