Our head-chef, Marcelo, learnt his trade from an early age growing up with his family being fanatical about food & cooking and always in the restaurant business. He fondly remembers bussing tables at his dad’s local eatery in Valencia, a region in Spain known for its adventurous culinary approach and this is emulated in his style which also bears some Japanese & South American influence owing to his travels. Along with experimenting new recipes, he loves fish, shellfish and olive oil.
El Ganso is situated on Broadway Market, a busy traditional market street since the 1890s, now a chic down-to-earth hang out. On Saturdays the market comes alive with artisan stalls selling anything from home-made sour dough bread to vintage handbags which creates a bustling must-see location for Londoners and tourists, offering many exciting independent boutiques and restaurants too. The restaurant itself is a comfortable meeting ground for young hipsters, families, friends and business people alike. The venue is cosy, with comfortable banquette seating at the sides and small intimate tables in the centre that double up for larger bookings.
