SquareMeal Review of
Lobos Meat & Tapas Bar
Lobos ('wolves' in Spanish) is a new tapas joint in the heart of Borough Market, created by a team who met while working at renowned Spanish food group, Brindisa. Situated in a cramped railway arch, its two storeys manage to incorporate a bar (with views out to the market), kitchen and cave-like dining area. Our tip: grab a cosy mini booth for two and start with the pan con tomate, and ham, chorizo and smoked bacon croquetas. The menu has a clear emphasis on meat (mostly sourced from Borough Market); we sampled a rib-eye topped with exquisite foie gras, a rack of lamb with a herbaceous crust and a gloriously fatty secreto ibérico (the hidden cut between the pig's shoulder and loin) with homemade crisps. A generous selection of cava and sherries also helps make Lobos a fun addition to London's ever-growing list of on-the-money tapas venues.
