Wannabe Foodie #6: Miss Tapas

Sharing is Caring and is most certainly embodied within the cosy walls of Miss Tapas, Peckham. Offering flavorsome Spanish delights , Miss Tapas is great for a first time tapas experience and you will probably come back again.

Tapas are small Spanish savoury dishes that are often designed for sharing. They are often accompanied with drinking and you can order as many or as little as you want. The idea is to enjoy these Tapas as a meal. There is a varied selection of what Tapas can be and is not one food in particular. It can range from meat, fish and breads and you can mix and match as you see fit.

Being run by it’s owners, Miss Tapas offers a rustic and homely welcome. With their menu written on a chalk board as you walk in, different items are often added to the menu. A staple favourite of mine is the tortilla (Spanish potato and egg). This initially sounds as bit odd as it is served at room temperature, but it is honestly so delicious.

Spanish Meatballs

Alongside patatas bravas (potato in spiced tomato sauce), prawn croquettes and Spanish meatballs, the Jamón ibérico is a definite must try. This is a spiced, cured ham and is carved fresh to eat and served with small bread sticks. It’s a great way to break up the sauciness of a lot of the dishes and is great with a glass of wine.

The staff in Miss Tapas are noteworthy, they are so friendly and are happy to help you with any queries you have about the menu. Don’t be shy to try something new. I myself have tried beef cheek and pesto tuna here and they were both great. As the prices here are quite reasonable, split between a group of you, you could pay as little as £20 a head (including a drink) in one visit.

Bear in mind, Miss Tapas does not take reservations, but if you call beforehand you can be added to the waiting list or just walk in!
