History and Background:
Classic Spanish tapas on 163 Old Brompton Road. Cambio De Tercio is the “signature Restaurant of the Cambio De Tercio Restaurant Group”. Located in South Ken, it has been open since June 1995. They also hold the largest Spanish wine collection in the whole of London.
Having achieved a number of prestigious accolades since 1996, you can say that this one of the most authentic Spanish places in town, that even tennis star, Rafael Nadal visits whenever he’s in town. (You know where I will be dining come Wimbledon…hehe.)
You may have to get used to the long dish names… Above we have the famous ham croquettes, thyme-tomato sauce. Crispy and succulent with the sauce giving it its full flavour. Below we have a famous, signature dish el Bulli tortilla. It was something different, and omelette was very fluid like, definitely something you should order. Served in a cocktail glass, layered by caramelised onion and egg yolk added with potato crisps.
Yes I ordered a mushroom dish yet again! I really really loved this one, mushrooms full of flavour and juice but foie gras made how I like it, very soft. Wendy ordered the patatas bravas. This was really good, a traditional favourite. Crispy, but not too fried and not dry – since it was filled with spicy tomato sauced with aioli and chives.
Wendy couldn’t even finish since we were stuffed…
Service: Friendly staff, not too intrusive but also very knowledgeable
The bits and bobs:
- Recommended 1-2 tapas and a main, or 3-4 tapas and no main
