Spanish Sidra Avalon & Tapas @ Camino

We visited Camino a Tapas restaurant to try out their new Spanish Sidra Avalon which we were really excited about! When we go out for dinner we will most likely also have a nice alcoholic beverage with our meal too. We aren’t really fussy drinkers and will often drink something that compliments the food we have ordered.

Camino Kings Cross was hidden out of the way from the high street but close enough to the station if you wanted a pre train meal. We also commented it would be a great place to go for a date as it was the perfect atmosphere.

It was a beautiful day and the sun was shining and we were really craving a refreshing drink in the sunshine. The Spanish Sidra Avalon is on draught in the four incredible Camino venues across London.

Avalon is a refreshing, crisp Sidra with clean aromas of summer orchard and hints of applewood. A pale colour, the delicious ripple has a slow release of fine bubbles. It was delicious and wasn’t too heavy.

The nice thing about going out for tapas is that you get to try and eat a large range of dishes, this makes eating tapas much more exciting and means when with a group everyone will be happy. However with such a large selection of food how can you decide what to drink, however the good thing about this Spanish Sidra Avalon is that its super light and therefore will go with any food your order off the menu.

The staff at Camino were very polite and helpful when we asked them to recommend dishes that went well with the new Sidra Avalon.

There is literally so much choice on the menu and its split up in sections, fish & seafood, meat, nibbles, vegetarian etc so its easy to pick what you want. We went for jamon serrano, potatas bravas, iberico meatballs, chicken skewer and arzua ulloa. Basically we ordered in the same order, slices of serrano ham, potatoes covered in tomato sauce, meatballs, chicken skewers and fried cheese with chutney jam. We definitely ordered the perfect amount of food for the 2 of us and a good selection of meat and vegetables.

The food was served as and when it was cooked as all dishes are freshly prepared. Being typical bloggers who wanted to photograph the food we were waiting to tuck in as we wanted to photograph all the dishes together. The Waitress spotted that we were not eating the food and said she could bring us out fresh dishes if we wanted, it was not her fault and we didn’t want the food to go to waste so we declined the offer but it was lovely of her to offer.

There are 5 Camino Tapas restaurants in London; Kings Cross x2, Bankside, Monument and Shoreditch.

There was an outside seating area at the Kings Cross branch which we were very happy about as it was a beautiful day. We also spotted the bar garden around the back which was for drinks only and that was in the sunshine.

The Avalon draught is gluten free and has an ABB of 5.5%!

We had a fab afternoon and we will definitely be visiting Camino again and drinking Sidra Avalon!
