London - Jose @ Bermondsey Street

klyeoh | Jan 8, 2012 02:20 PM

Jose on Bermondsey Street was one of those places where one needed to come very early, to avoid the queue to get in and, if you're lucky, you get to sit whilst you eat. Many are content to just stand (cheek by jowl) whilst eating in this elbow-room-only eatery.

The food - Spanish tapas bar classics. Our choice:

- Albondigas (meatballs blanketed with tomato sauce;

- Crisp, salted almonds;

- Tortilla - slivers of perfectly c;ooked potatoes held together with just that enough egg;

- Prawns in garlic, chillis. The prawn-heads were left on - not surprising as all the flavors were concentrated there;

- Iberico pork medallions, which were medium-rare discs of porky goodness ;-)

A return visit was necessary to try other choices on their menu.
