It might not be quite the same as a bit of turkey and a Brussel sprout, but those in search of a tasty alternative to traditional Christmas dinner might want to take a look at Jamon Jamon - the sharing nature of Spanish tapas makes it a great convivial experience for a shared Christmas gathering, and Jamon Jamon offers a menu packed full of authentic tapas delights. That includes jamon - both Iberico and Serrano - cured in-house (hence the name).
The Camden Town branch of Jamon Jamon is the multi-site tapas groups original (it has since opened up in nearby Belsize Park and in Soho). This buzzy location is a great choice for anyone looking for unpretentious food and good fun in North London - on top of that, it’s just minutes walk from Camden Town station, making it easy access for anyone travelling within London.
Inside you’ll find Jamon Jamon has a rustic charm - wood floors and tables match exposed brickwork on the walls, making the restaurant feel homely and welcoming. The menu doubles down on that warmth with authentic, traditional tapas dishes. All your favourites are accounted for - tortilla Espanola, gambas al ajillo (sizzling prawns in garlic and chilli), Galician-style octopus, croquetas de jamon, patatas bravas and more. There are boards of wafer thin ham - cured in-house of course - as well as other nibbles and salads. Paellas are popular too, and available as vegetarian, vegan, meat or seafood for up to three people at a time.
Throw in pitches of sangria, wines, spirits, sherries and Cava and you’re practically guaranteed a good time at this no-frills tapas joint. Christmas bookings are available for large and small groups, and the restaurant offers exclusive hire for larger groups too, so get in touch with the restaurant to book.
