Weekend evenings at Jamón Jamón are boisterous affairs: tables are often pushed together to make room for birthday parties, and the sound of laughter can eclipse quiet conversation, which is deeply Spanish if not very conducive to a romantic meal for two. Nor is the interior exactly eye-catching – just ‘Jamón Jamón’ cast in metal and protruding from the otherwise bare walls at regular intervals – but the tapas, although unimaginative, are deftly executed. Squid in tomato sauce featured generous chunks of tender seafood, a plate of fried whitebait was fresh and enormous, and there was a marked flair even to standards such as patatas bravas and sliced chorizo, the rich meat of the latter matched with roasted red peppers and a red wine sauce. A deserving local favourite.
