What’s that I hear tap, tap, tapping at my door down in Beckenham? It’s Tapeo Cafe & Tapas, that’s what, a Spanish tapas bar to rival any that central London might be touting. At Tapeo’s premises up on the bustling High Street, minutes from Beckenham Junction station and many landmarks, what’s on offer is, as the proprietor’s simply state, ‘magic on a plate’. Conjuring up a mix of traditional and contemporary tapas from a careful balance of imported Spanish ingredients and locally-sourced British produce, head chef Enric Castello and dynamic trio Jose Luis Gil, Carlos David, and Marcos Machado Mora – all highly-acclaimed – are set to wow the discerning palates of gourmets from Barcelona to Beckenham.
If you’re looking for exciting, creative Spanish food off the beaten track in London, then you’ve come to the right place! Tapeo Cafe & Tapas is the perfect neighbourhood eatery located on Beckenham’s High Street. With a full tapas menu crafted carefully by Tapeo’s talented chefs, be sure to try some of their signature Spanish dishes like the almond soup with garlic, flamed salmon and roasted coconut chips or the pan-fried scallops with chorizo, red onion purée and cured manchego foam for something a little bit different, and decadent.
Their extensive menus also covers all your tapas favourites - with everything from charcuterie to cheese and meat, plus the obligatory (and delicious!) patatas bravas doused in garlic aioli. Vegetarians or kids in your group? Both are covered with their own menus too. If you fancy a tipple to accompany your Tapeo’s tapas you simply must try their Strawberry Rose Sangria for a refreshing take on the Spanish classic. Tapas in London really don’t get much better than this!
