With all the increasingly niche and exotic restaurant concepts popping up all over the capital’s coolest dining quarters, it can be easy to forget that tapas was once just as novel a cuisine as, say, Japanese-Scottish gluten free donuts. Well it was, and for good reason. Remind yourself of everything that’s great about Spain’s enduring influence on our palette and our plate sizes at Camino Shoreditch, the latest addition to the popular group of London eateries. Inspired by an Iberian road trip back in 1984 and subsequent adventures through the nation’s food and drink, executive chef Nacho del Campo and the team have put together a fresh, well-priced menu with the right balance of comforting classics and intriguing contemporary dishes: think padrón peppers, cheese and jamón alongside smoky octopus and beetroot puree, duck breast with Jerusalem artichokes and creamy saffron-inflected pearl barley. Taking design cues from the Castile y León region of Northern Spain, and boasting an extensive and well-priced drinks list to boot, this cosy, casual eating house is sure to please carnivores, pescatarians, vegetarians and barflies alike.
