Review on LOBOS Meat & Tapas
LOBOS Meat & Tapas is a fascinating newcomer tucked away under the rail arches near London Bridge station, accessible from both Borough High Street and Dragon Court Alley. It's the first solo project from former Tapas Brindas Head Chef Roberto Castro, together with colleagues Joel Placeres and Rubén Maza, who also worked at the same restaurant. Lobos means wolf in Spanish and the interiors created by Design Mad is evocative of a wolves den, a cavernous dimly lit space with wood and metallic finishes. On the ground floor there's a buzzy bar featuring a full leg of Iberico ham, while upstairs there's an intimate tunnel shaped dining room, with small wooden tables and chairs and dark red leather booths.
The kitchen works closely with Borough Market traders so the frequently changing menu reflects the very best of seasonal produce. The focus of the cooking is prime cuts from the Iberico pig, including secreto Iberico, the hidden cut located between the shoulder and loin, presa Iberico, the top shoulder and solomillo Iberico, the fillet. Designed for sharing, there's a great selection of tapas dishes, alongside the tempting meat menu. Enjoy braised pork cheeks with mash and horseradish or maybe the delicious Lobo Bun, marinated port patty with onion, peppers, candy bacon topped with a fried egg. When it comes to desserts there's a double chocolate and pistachio cake or a lemon panna cotta with Amaretto strawberries.
Warm attentive service and a wine list emphasising Spanish wines and sherry, together with a concise cocktail list, ensures an inviting dining experience.
