Camino launches new winter menu

This December, restaurant and bar group Camino is launching a new winter menu across its sites at King’s Cross, Canary Wharf, Blackfriars and Monument. The new menu boasts a selection of tapas and sharing platters, created with the finest Spanish and British ingredients.

Exciting new tapas on the menu include: Olla Gitana, a chickpea stew with pear, butternut squash, peppers and fine beans, Lubina, pan fried Cornish sea bass, mojo verde and curly kale and Tuetano, a mixed leaf and herb salad with roasted bone marrow, clementine and Pedro Ximénez vinegar reduction.

For larger groups, a choice of Mixto (mixed), Vegetariano or Embutidos Y Quesos (Spanish cured meats & cheeses) sharing platters offer the perfect choice to sample a selection of everything. 

A special addition to the charcoal grill menu is Spanish delicacy Cochinillo – suckling pig belly, spiced apple and thyme sauce. Camino cook on genuine Basque country charcoal grills, a region famous for producing some of the world’s best grilled food.

To finish, the new menu has introduced Peras al Patxaran, a warming dessert of pears cooked in Patxaran sloe berry and anise licor. 

The innovative menus are created and executed by Head Chef Nacho Del Campo, who originates from the Basque country in northern Spain. Nacho’s past experience includes: Alba Granados in Barcelona and Bibendum, London, before joining Camino six years ago.  

The Camino group also boasts two specialist bars: Bar Pepito and Copa de Cava. Bar Pepito, a unique sherry bar, located across the courtyard from Camino King’s Cross, offers 19 of the best sherries sourced from the towns of Jerez de la Frontera, El Puerto de Santa Maria and Sanlúcar de Barrameda which form the ‘Sherry Triangle’. Bar Pepito has two set menus – Caminito de Vinos de Jerez, a tasting menu of 8 different sherries (£21.50), and Caminito de Comida, a menu of 8 tapas for two to share, priced at £20 per person. The bar also offers the ‘Autopista’ tasting menu, perfect matches of different sherries and tapas. Alternatively flights of 3 different sherries start at £9.50.  

Copa de Cava is the UK’s first authentic, dedicated cava bar, offering a wide range of cavas. The beautiful bar is located beneath Camino in Blackfriars and near to Camino in Monument. Copa de Cava also has its own exciting and ultra-authentic tapas menu designed to perfectly match with cava. There is a set tasting combined tapas and cava menu (£60 per person) and two different ‘Menu Picoteo’ – set tapas menus, (£30/£15).  

Both of the drinks offerings at Bar Pepito and Copa de Cava are overseen by Camino restaurant group owner and dedicated Hispanophile Richard Bigg. Richard has an impressive knowledge of Spanish wines and travels frequently and extensively across Spain to source all of the wines, cavas and sherries served across the group. Prior to launching the first Camino, Richard opened Cantaloupe Bar in Shoreditch in 1995, followed by Cargo in 2000, the Big Chill Festival from 2002 – 2009, Big Chill Bar in 2004 and Big Chill House in 2007.
