CAMBIO DE TERCIO
Under Abel Lusa’s long term wonderful hospitality and guidance along with chef Alberto Criado’s (Twitter @Alberto_Criado) creative dishes, Cambio de Tercio has become a standard bearer for Iberian food in London. Most Hispanophile's consider it the best in town.
You can chose from the traditional tapas menu, an inventive á la carte menu or the excellent and very reasonably priced tasting menu at £45 pp.
On a recent visit we had this tasting menu.
Andalusian gazpacho, steamed king prawns & cherry ice cream
Cod brandade, tomato water & cristal toast
New season white asparagus, almond vinaigrette & tarragon foam
Wild Cornish turbot roasted with sprouting broccoli, black olives & tomato
Roasted quail, stuffed with Iberian pork, pickled purple kale & roasted quince fruit

White chocolate bonbon with passion fruit blast
A selection of tapas and main meals from a previous visit.
Jamón Ibérico de bellota
Calamari with Alioli
Gambas a la plancha, aceite ajo y limon (king prawns “a la plancha” garlic, parsley oil)
Chuletillas de cordero a la parrilla, pure de patata con epinacas (Grilled lamb cutlets, thyme, Spinach mash)
Cochinillo (Suckling Pig)
There is also a vegetarian tasting menu available which would be a vary rare occurrence in Spain!
You will also find some fun deserts like
The Wimbledon Special (tapioca powder yellow chocolate strawberries & cream)
The edible London underground map and oyster card!
The wonderfully long and varied Spanish wine list includes more than 500 labels from virtually every wine growing region in Spain. From a pleasant cava from Juve y Camps to a block busting (and pocket busting) red like Vega Sicilla Reserva Especial or a Pingus 1995 (don't ask how much!)
It’s always a enjoyable evening here and you are always likely to bump into a famous footballer, tennis player or pop star. Service is informal and friendly
There are two evening sittings 7pm and 9.15pm
