Nearly every bus you catch in South London goes through Camberwell Green, its good news..because Angels and Gypsies is Splendid…customers looked thrilled to be there and with good reason…It’s where I’d go to drink & nibble & to spend my money very happily, again and again
Highlights that follow include king gambas in a piquillo pepper vinaigrette… chopped octopus in paprika, which is tender in a way tentacles so rarely are…. A slab of slow-roasted pork belly… pairs beautifully with a dollop of rum plum jam… a destination restaurant in south London.
This little Camberwell beauty is where you’ll find excellent renditions of Spanish classics….scarlet curls of intense Iberico chorizo cooked in Basque coder would put any Brindisa creation to shame.. Our choices were excellent… service was swift, informed and charm personified’
There’s some seriously skilled cooking at work at Angels and Gypsies… the quality of ingredients is remarkable… When ordering its worth getting in touch with your inner Spaniard… a sherry or two from their sizeable list should help get you into character.
Well-executed tapas bar standards: creamy, jamón-packed croquetas, tortilla,…But the more intriguing stuff delivers too: mackerel with chermoula and saffron potatoes; or tender sirloin steak on a bed of black beans…. If Angels and Gypsies landed on my doorstep, I’d be buzzed too.
Unpretentious and pretty raw and rustic, it lives up to its name with stained glass pictures of Angels and Gypsies all around, exposed brickwork and a curved central bar. The staff are mostly Spanish, and know their onions, making this a welcoming and authentic little place to go.
If you’re in the mood for some divine tapas, pick up the phone now and book a table -becoming one of the hottest dining destinations in town.The mussel and chorizo stew must be given particular acclaim for its tasty blend of spices; it was a delicious, flavoursome accompaniment to our wine.
Combines tapas favourites..with new-wave Iberian dishes. A Sephardi-inspired speciality of spiced chicken with poached apricots was a resounding success, as were crisp jamon croquetas and a plate of fennel and chicory, whose bittersweet flavours were highlighted by a smoky char-grilled note.
