Bar Pepito 1

Squaremeal Review of Bar Pepito ?

Across the courtyard from its larger sibling Camino, this boxy bodega is so persuasively styled, you’d swear you’d landed in Cádiz not King’s Cross. Elegant sherries are the thing here, and Pepito has helped overturn the common perception that this fortified wine is only fit only for vicars and maiden aunts. If you don’t know your Manzanilla from your Moscatel, Jerez’s finest come in flights of three and as part of a ‘road trip’ – an eight-dish tapas menu with suitable pairings: try wafer-thin hams off the bone with a dry Oloroso Alfonso or blue cheese croquetas alongside a Palo Cortado Apostoles. Friendly staff ensure you won’t go wrong, but if you want to go it alone, the menu's failsafe advice runs thus: ‘If it swims, drink Fino. If it flies, drink Amontillado. If it walks or runs, drink Oloroso.’ Gutsy Iberian wines too.

We met at Pepito on a cold Monday evening, the bar was quiet to say the least but it didn't matter, I had good company. As I was late, the wine had had time to breath and it was delicious.

I wasn't hungry but was convinced by my friend to try the smoked steak tartare (smoked tartare, really ??) and we stood by the tiny cooking station behind the bar to watch the magic. The cook/chef/guy sliced thin piece of beef and started mincing it by hand...

Tiny, cramped with magnificent sherries, Bar Pepito is as fabulous a place to grab a slice of jamon, some quesos and a manzanilla or pedro ximinez as you will find in London. In fact, it wouldn't be out of place in Catalunya. So there are only three tables, but do the Spanish thing and stand up, grab a nibble and a glass of something chilled and have a great time.
