Since I went to Spain in December, I have developed a love for Spanish cuisine, especially for tapas. I always liked the scheme of not having a main course – and yes, several dishes to share – and I think it’s because of this idea that I love tapas! And of course the Spanish tapas are delicious! Last month, I participated in the 4th annual Galicia Cinema & Food Festival, an event promoted by the Spanish Embassy to celebrate the cuisine and culture of the region of Galicia, Spain. On the occasion, a dinner was offered – delicious, by the way – and commanded by the chefs of the restaurant Tomiño Taberna Gallega. I took the card and soon secured a reservation there, as I enjoyed the food so much I wanted to repeat the experience in some way.
The restaurant is located in Little Italy, mixed with a bit of Chinatown. The space is very beautiful, large and cozy and the highlight of the menu is the tapas. The idea, as the name suggests, is to offer what Galicia gastronomy has to offer. Tapas include options such as croquettes, empanadas, tortillas, as well as options with chorizo and seafood. Prices start at $8 and go up to $21. There are also main courses, starting at $22. But, I think the experience gets better by choosing several tapas! Click here and check out the full menu!
We chose three tapas: Croquetas ($8), with four, Octopus ($18) and also Chorizos al Infierno (spicy sausage, $10). Also, we ordered one beer each. Everything was so delicious! We enjoy the experience, the food, the service and the atmosphere! Anyway, we loved the restaurant, we enjoyed the value for money and will certainly go back!
