We don’t have Camino up north (I don’t believe) but they are scattered across London, having never visited and with a hankering for tapas, we booked a table at the Shoreditch (Curtain Street) restaurant.
I don’t think I’ve mentioned this on the blog previously, but I don’t eat meat (I do eat fish!) so when I first sat down and looked at the menu, I was a little worried, it’s very meat heavy but on closer inspection there was more than enough to choose from.
We ordered 6 dishes between 2 of us (and had room for dessert)
For our main course we ordered:
- Arzua Ulloa (these are cheese fritters with a pepper jam)
- Two portions of the Gambas Ajillo (prawns, garlic, chilli, white wine served on a hot skillet)
- Patatas Bravas
- Curly Endive Salad (Avocado, tomato and peppers)
- Grilled Broccoli which comes with an amazing truffle butter
I can honestly say there wasn’t a dish we didn’t love. I think I’ve been dreaming of the cheese fritters since we left and would revisit for those alone.
Once we finished we couldn’t resist the churros to share with a side of vanilla and nougat ice cream. Both were very good but the chocolate dip for the churros was a little too bitter for me!
The drinks were good that (we stuck with the room roots) and the service (from Klaus) was fantastic, it always makes an evening more enjoyable when the people who work in an establishment are good fun too.
The price is ££ and if you’ve never tried it before, book yourself a table and give it a go!
