Cambio De Tercio

Cambio De Tercio
South Ken is where it’s at!

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.)

The meal:

Bread and olives with Wendy
Cambio De Tercio
Nuestras Famosas Croquetas De Jamon Iberico, Salsa De Tomate-Tomillo £7.50

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.

El Bulli £4.50
Cambio De Tercio
Mini wagyu beef burger 100% W agyu, Finca Santa Rosalia, Burgos, Spain £3.75
Cambio De Tercio
Girolle mushrooms casserole with soft poached egg, veal stock and foie gras £14.50

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.

Grilled lamb cutlets, thyme, Spinach mashed potatoes £12.50

Wendy couldn’t even finish since we were stuffed…

Cambio de Tercio
King Prawns “a la plancha” garlic, parsley oil £12.25

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
  • Relatively quiet when we came, maybe you can go without a booking

Price: ££ – £££ (It’s tapas, you can control your spending)
