Tapas? Tapas yes! How can you ever say no to Tapas?!.. Nothing like some Spanish Tapas.. and while I usually go to Toro for it… Solea is closer. Since I’m so behind in posts I’m gonna be doing a lot of just plain picture posts with minimal writing….
I got some Red Sangria with some bubbbbbbbly in it… !!!
Sangria Royal, Red Sangria with Cava and Gran Marnier
Bread and Hummus
Always a good pair.
Pulpo a Feria, Galician Style Octopus with Paprika and Olive Oil
This is a cold dish.. the octopus is tender but I thought that there was just way too much.
Gambas al Ajillo, Sizzling Garlic Shrimp
Pimiento de Piquillo, Shrimp and Crab Stuffed Piquillo Peppers
This was alright. I’ve had better in other places…
Chorizo a la Plancha, Seared Spanish Sausage
Pato Braseado, Roasted Duck with Berry Sauce
This shall always be my favorite dish to get when I get tapas. DUCK IS THE THING TO GET!
Almejas a la Marinera, Steamed Littleneck Clams with White Wine and Herb Sauce
Vieiras al Azafrán, Scallops in Saffron Cream
I’m not too big on cream sauces so I only had one. There’s something about my palate I can taste everything but saffron. Weird.
Solomillo con Chimichurri, Beef Tenderloin with Spicy Herb Sauce
The beef was tender but by the time we got this we were so full of everything else….
Setas al Ajillo, Sautéed Wild Mushrooms
Codorniz, Braised Quail with Lentils
Almendras Marconas, Roasted Marcona Almonds
Churros con Chocolate, Cinnamon-laced Fritters with Dark Chocolate Sauce
Flan, Coconut Flan
Everything was delicious but it was super filling for just three people.
