Camino is a tapas restaurant which has many branches around London and one of them is located in Bankside. It is fairly close to Tate Modern which could be a possible place to consider after spending some time with modern art.
We ordered a selection of tapas to share amongst the table.
Tortilla de Patata (Spanish potato omelette)
Croquetas de Jamon (Serrano ham croquettes)
Camino has a selection of Iberico ham to order
Crispy baby squid
Rodaballo (pan-roasted fish wrapped in serrano ham)
The Arroz Negro (Black rice, cuttlefish, squid ink, alioli) for £5 was on a small size. I could have this little pot all by myself.
Pulpo Con Cachelos (sliced octopus served with potatoes, paprika and extra virgin olive oil)
Gambas Al Ajillo (Sauteed Prawns with garlic, chilli and white sauce)
Mini Iberico Burger served with patatas bravas.
Camino secreto iberica
There are larger plates for sharing and we tried the mixed grill that contained chicken skewers, rib-eye steak, presa Iberica and chorizo, morcilla, padron peppers and huevos rotos.
Overall, I thought the tapas at Camino was okay but it does not compare with Barrafina. However the advantage of Camino is that it will cater for a large group, as it offer more than just bar seating.
Although, I find tapas is not a cheap cuisines to eat, Camino is less expensive than Barrafina. But if you have a big appetite I would not consider eating tapas unless you want to make a big hole in your money bag!
