LONDON - BERMONDSEY - ANDANZA

ANDANZA


June 2021

This small tapas/pintxo bar/restaurant opened,. just before the start of the Covid-19 lockdown, so they have had a troubled start like everyone else but they are now back up and running.


Andanza (which means luck or fate in Spanish) comes from the same people behind The Rose Gastropub opposite. The restaurant, in its previous incarnation, was a William Hill betting shop for over 30 years, so as everyone says to the owners, "I hope your gamble has paid off!"

The chef worked formaly at the Basque Restaurant Lurra and their master jamon carver was from Restaurant Brindisa, so they have some of the best, when it comes to Spanish food.

We went, on a sunny Tuesday evening, when most of the customers were eating outside.

To start, we had a bottle of Llolpart Brut Reserva Dorpinnat 2018.

The current menu is split between pintxos and tapas, we started with pintxos.

Foie con reducción de Pedro Ximénez (foie gras with a PX Reduction).

Chorizo con salsa de pimiento de piquillo y guindilla (chorizo with sweet pepper sauce and sweet pepper).

Gulas al ajillo (fake baby eels with garlic)

Patatas Bravas

Croquetas of the day

Boquerones en aceite de frambuesa (anchovies in raspberry oil)

Then, a bottle of Camins del Priorat, Alvaro Palacios 2018.

Followed by tapas

Carrilleras de Cerdo, puré de chirivía, chips de alcachofa (pork cheeks, parsnip puree and artichoke chips).

Albondigas de cabra (goat meatballs)

Pulpo a la Gallega con patatas confitadas (Galician octopus and confit potatoes).

Pluma Ibérico con salsa de trufas, alcachofas ahumadas (feather cut pork loin in a mushroom and truffle sauce with smoked artichokes)

For dessert, we had a glass of Pedro Ximénez, with the must-have.......

Tarta de queso a la vasca. (Basque-style cheesecake.)

Mousse de chocolate, miel y queso de cabra (chocolate, honey and goat’s cheese mousse).

Sorbete de mango (mango sorbet).

There is a small, interesting selection of Spanish wines (not the usual ones seen everywhere), beers, vermouth and sherry.

This is a great, authentic Spanish addition, to the local scene, with helpful informative staff and they deserve to be successful.
