They seated us at a bar by the stairs and we clambered up onto the bar stools (something I find a little tricky.) After ordering glasses of Spanish wine and bottles of beer for the boys, the waiter explained to us the Pix way of eating. Once plates had been delivered A and I sent the boys up to the bar which was groaning with different tapas dishes. They returned, plates laden, so we went along to the bar to see what we could find. Pix has a clever way of telling you how much each dish (pintxos) is, by using skewers that stand up in each dish, with the length of the skewer telling you how much that dish is (£1.95 for the shorter stick and £2.75 for the longer one.) This means you can eat within a budget if you want and not if you’re being greedy like we were. Once you’re done with the sticks, you pop them into a little vase and at the end of the meal, take it to one of the waiters who will count them and work out your bill for you!

The chorizo and Manchego was particularly good, but there wasn’t one dish that night that we could have complained about. My friends were happy I’d dragged them to Soho after all, and we will definitely be visiting Pix again.
