Mar i Terra
Got taken to a really cool little place on Friday night…
It’s called Mar i Terra and it’s on a tiny backstreet near Southwark tube station.
Amazing tapas and amazing wine – not cheap but very very good value considering how excellent it all is – and in cosy, unpretentious surroundings with dead friendly staff.
Top tips: Patatas bravas, Fabada Asturiana (a stew of white Pote beans, chorizo, morcilla and panceta adobada, scented with pimentón), the silky, sweet Jamón Gran Reserva – and a stunner of a red wine; the Paso a Paso, Tinto De La Mancha, 2006. Dammit, even the “basic” plate of bread and olives is superb!
This is one of those times when it’s hard to say quite how good a meal was, as there’s little chance of people believing you.
But it absolutely is just *that* good…
Will be going back.
