Heck yeah BURRITOS

Vegan and veggie burritos topped with fresh house pickles and hot sauce all made by us, served up with plenty of Mexican and Tex-Mex tunes on the side. 

We’re getting the summer cookout vibes going, even if the weather strongly disagrees.

ALL DAY SATURDAY 23rd APRIL

1pm – 8pm/SELL OUT

AVAILABLE TO TAKE AWAY!

Should the sun shine, take a burrito and a couple of cans to the park. Ideal.

Marley’s Pizza x Corto

On Friday 1st and Saturday 2nd April, Marley’s Pizza is coming back to Corto for a delicious collab of pizza pies and fermented pickles and sauces.

WE HAVE VERY FEW SPACES LEFT ON FRIDAY 1st
WE HAVE LOADS OF ROOM ON SATURDAY 2nd

The best way to reserve a table is to email us at hello@cortobar.co.uk – just tell us how many of you there will be and what time you’d like to book.

Please keep bookings below 6 people — we’re a tiny place.

Anjana’s Kitchen Momo Pop-Up

We are super thrilled to welcome Anjana’s Kitchen to Corto for her first ever pop-up event!

On Friday 4th March, feast yourself silly on momos — Nepalese dumplings filled with spiced meat and vegetables, a bit like gyoza or dim sum.

Choose from chicken or vegetable (which is vegan), and add dipping sauce and/or Jhal (a spiced tomato broth). Ideal! Delicious!

To reserve a table there’s a few things we need from you, if you don’t mind:

• Choose an hour time-slot between 6pm, 7pm or 8pm
• Tell us how many people you are booking for
• Confirm which items from the menu you’d like to order

Email hello@cortobar.co.uk to book!

Introducing: Corto Fermentations, your new fave snacks

Sometimes we forget that we’ve not shared some of our biggest plans with the world. We’ve got all these ideas for Corto, but we realised the other day, we’ve not been shouting about most of them yet!

Call it apprehension, extreme secretiveness or just forgetfulness — whatever it is, it’s not that helpful when we don’t tell you what we’re up to!

So. Here we are telling you one of our biggest secrets: here’s some news about our Tasty Things!

Tasty food at Corto

Corto will not only serve drinks. Our bar is heavily inspired by tapas culture and the Izakaya bars of Japan, which means yes, there will be food!

However, we’ll be using food to accentuate the amazing craft beer, natural wine and cider on our menu. Little dishes of tasty things, not hot meals, but snacks, aimed at being delicious and adding to the experience.

Instead of coming in for a meal, we hope you’ll come by for a plate of tasty things and a glass of something delicious. Our main focus is and always will be our drinks — beer, cider and wine is where our main passions are. But you can’t beat a great plate of snackies.

Think cheese from Courtyard Dairy, Dave on the market and local farms we’re working with directly. Think ham from local producers in Settle and Ilkley. Think tapas-inspired pan con tomate, and grilled cheese sarnies hot from the panini press (Tom’s main obsession in life.) Think vegan treats from amazing independent makers. Think pickles and hot sauces… 

Which brings us to our main revelation.

Corto Fermentations

We’d like to introduce you to our happy little project, Corto Fermentations!

Tom loves bringing out the incredible flavours that come from naturally fermenting vegetables and fruit. Using his 7 years of homebrewing experience he decided that making beer was too much washing up, and instead started playing with recipes for hot sauces, kimchi, sauerkraut, pickles and other good, good stuff.

Natural ferments bring out loads of different fruity flavours within the veg and adds acidity and complexity. This is the way gherkins are traditionally made! Believe it or not, there’s no vinegar in there. (Depending where you read you might also hear about probiotic benefits… but we’re not gonna claim anything. We just like how it tastes!) 

These immense pickles and sauces will accompany most of our snacks, and are made from locally grown vegetables whenever we can get them! And when we can’t, we’re locally-sourcing them.

We’re really excited about this next part of Corto and we really hope you can come and taste some of our Corto Fermentations creations soon.

Not long now, folks. Not long now.
