Casa Brindisa

It’s my birthday today and one of the wonderful presents I received from Stephen was a camera. We resolved to take more pictures of the food we eat in restuarants so we can post about it and today came the first opportunity.

We already have plans for dinner but as we were in the area it seemed foolish not to pay a visit to Casa Brindisa. We agreed not to eat too much and ordered a selection of food to share. Or so we thought.

First out was the ‘Regional Charcuterie Selection’ which included Teruel ham, loin, chorizo and Salchichon. As you can see from the picture, there was a lot of it but it was really tasty. The meats were all beautifully seasoned and full of flavour while remaining delicate and velvety in texture.

With this we had some ‘Aged Payoyo ewes cheese, special reserve’ which was similar in both taste and texture to Manchego but lighter and not as sharp. It went brilliantly with the meat selection.

We then moved on to some warm dishes: ‘Baby chicken and romesco sauce’ and ‘Iberico pork cheeks and butterbeans’. The pork cheeks were my favourite, it was hard to pick out the flavours but the sauce was rich and deep in flavour. We’ve made romesco sauce in the past but ours had a much finer texture than the one we had today which was coarse with lovely chunky pieces of almond in.

The waiting staff were lovely and the menu changes daily which means there will always be something new to try. The restaurant didn’t seem to have the same vibrancy as the original Brindisa in Borough Market and they served the wine in water glasses but, other than that, we had a really enjoyable lunch.
