Square Meal Review of Casa Brindisa ?

A go-to for produce geeks chasing their jamón fix, Brindisa is a by-word for the finest Spanish comestibles. This South Ken branch is mercifully free from gastronomic pontificating, with no-nonsense tapas coming thick and fast in the open-fronted dining room (tiles, whitewashed walls, crammed-in tables). Think simple when ordering: platters of acorn- fed ham and chorizo, Gordal olives stuffed with orange, flavour-bomb boquerones or blackened Padrón peppers all shine, while albondigas con sepia (meatballs with cuttlefish) aren't far behind. More creative efforts such as baby octopus buried in salty samphire can be variable, but traditional desserts are unmissable – try the cold rice pudding with caramelised milk ice cream. With sought-after pavement tables, ample standing room at the bar and a newly minted ‘charcuteria' alongside, pit stops for a sherry and some meaty nibbles are a must.

    Wrap Your Lips Around This :: Casa Brindisa

    The daily exodus of the over-worked masses from the heart of London to its frayed ends is a familiar transit. The most wrist-slitting journey is on the westbound district line which dodders along at an excruciating pace, such that a switchblade is often the only thing for it. On occasion, a break from this subterranean hell is in order – cue Casa Brindisa, located on the South Kensington stop of the line which shall not be named. The inability to afford both a travel card and a permanent residence in South Kensington may have you twitching again for the relief of that sharp edge, however eating here can be much more forgiving on your battered ego. Just outside the station are a multitude of affordable restaurants, the Spanish variety offered by Casa Brindisa. In warmer months the al fresco seating is often packed, whilst on this frosty evening the warmth of its capacious innards will do more to drive out the imminent frostbite. In a victory of timing, the first plates arrive along with the sensation in our toes. The charcuteria selection is an unstinting plate of chorizo, salchichón, lomo and teruel ham, with a generous side serving of spongy bread and olive oil. The cheese selection is more scant, made of timid little triangles of brittle manchego, nutty payoyo, briny blue picos de europa and ermesenda. Accompanying these are blobs of quince, grapes and tomato jam, which augment the mellow cheese with tone and inflection...
