Pining for Galician cooking in London?

In the spirit of positive business-as-usual upon which we pride ourselves in London, I wanted to give a big-up to a local restaurant in my barrio of Londres - run by two lovely ladies - Ana from Galicia and local Teresa: L'Oculto Wine Tapas Shop.

They started out as a tiny import business Flavours of Spain, bringing Galician specialities to their stall on farmers markets. They visit every supplier personally and take pride that everything is produced by artisans and family businesses. Then it grew, and last year they nervously tried a pop up restaurant / tapas bar. It was absolutely a local hit and is now a permanent thing. People in the neighbourhood can't believe their luck.

They even import the pulpo fresh from Galicia and I can confirm that their food is divine. Even their house wine is spectacular! So friendly and cosy too.

NB I am not gaining financially from this recommendation, I just want to see them succeed.

Walking distance from Lewisham station. You'll need a reservation.

Wow it looks brilliant. Wish it was not so far. If you want to have a glass of wine at Oculto and talk about Camino stuff, send me a PM. When are you setting out?
