    I'm one of the most indecisive people when it comes to ordering food from a menu. I like ordering lots of different dishes and then sharing it out amongst whoever I'm with - that way I can have a nibble of this and that and I don't suffer the dreaded food envy if I make a bad choice.
    For this reason tapas is one of my favourite types of foods - so when I was invited to the launch of Camino's newest outpost in Southwark, hungry and excited, I put on my loosest trousers and frogmarched myself straight there.

    You may of heard of Camino before, they serve up creative and seasonal Spanish tapas from their sites in Kings Cross, Blackfriars and Monument. The newest restaurant located beneath the Blue Fin Building, stays true to the brand's ethos providing delicious plates created using locally sourced or Spanish produce. As soon as we got there mouthwatering plates of food were paraded around the room so we got straight down to some serious eating....

    Wedges of Manchego cheese and 'ibores' goats cheese....

    Riojan chorizo and roasted piquillo peppers
    Padron peppers....
    Wafer thin slices of iberico ham
    Black rice, cuttlefish with squid ink and alioli
    Crispy fried baby squid garnished with a dollop of alioli and a squeeze of lemon
    'Rodaballo' - pan-roasted turbot wrapped in serrano ham
    All the food served on the night was delicious. Really big bold flavours but served in bite-size portions making them ideal to share with a group of friends.

    Camino is a great place to go with a group but it would also be a lovely place to go with a date. The wine list, particularly the cava, is brilliant so if you ever find yourself over by Bankside - make sure you pop in!
