it’s been a few years since i’ve been here. used my birthday as an excuse to come back. good times.

our group was large enough to order two different kinds of paella, and have them served together.

Paella Marinera. Rice with saffron, calamari, mussels, clams, shrimp, small lobster tail, etc
Arròs Négre. Cuttlefish, calamari, baby shrimp and mussels cooked with rice and squid’s ink

paired the meal with a syrah and a cabernet sauvignon from the liquor store down the street. paid the corkage. also had some of the house sangria. yum.

hot and cold tapas.

Croquetas de Pollo. Fried chicken croquettes
Patatas Bravas. Fried potatoes tossed with spicy tomato sauce
Almejas Marinera. Steamed Manila clams with white wine
Gambas al Ajillo. Shrimp sauteed with garlic and chili pod
