London - Laxiero
93 Columbia Rd, Shoreditch, London E2 7RG
Laxeiro is a gorgeous Galician (North West Spain) family run local restaurant found right at the heart of Columbia Road.
Galicia is famous for the quality of its beautiful food, local dishes and delicious wines, especially its Seafood due to its perfect position perched right on the corner of the Atlantic Coast.
Laxeiro’s approach is simplistic dishes done really really-well and they did not disappoint, that’s exactly what we got, fresh, quality ingredients served to perfection, with most of the ingredients sourced directly from Galicia, mixed with some ingredients and local meats directly from East End family run butchers and fishmonger nearby.
The space is small, and very cosy, which makes it adorable and adds to the always buzzy atmosphere, there was even a que to get in when we arrived and within seconds, the place was full, with a waiting list building.
A super popular venue for obvious reasons, with beautiful Tapas choices (chorizo al vino) an amazingly tasty Paella pan for two, yum! And stunning seafood selections such as giant garlic prawns & succulent Octopus (a classic Galician choice).
The all-Spanish wine list, which included delicious Cava went down a treat with the food and all guests seemed very pleased upon their exit.
Booking is highly advisable, this venue is small and always packed, so book in advance to avoid disappointment and trust us, if you don’t get in, you will be very disappointed. Loved it!
