La Taberna

The second lunch stop and the third meal stop for the day. Just steps away from our first lunch stop that day, this place was busier than the first. And it looked more inviting too. So allowing baby K to be a baby, run and play, we preferred to just ...

Nai Tapas Bar

Last Wednesday, I was invited for a press dinner. This, at a great eclectic tapas place with some molecular gastronomy thrown in.  And a nice wine selection to flow with the tapas, with only a beer at the beginning. The one thing I’ll ...

Filipino ensaymada is a soft, buttery brioche-like bun, topped with butter, sugar, and cheese. Some versions (like mine) use buttercream. Some use margarine. Some omit the cheese, but if you know me, I never omit the cheese.The post Filipino ...

Baked Eggs with Chorizo

Baked eggs in tomato sauce in common in Spanish and Portuguese cuisine. I added chorizo because I love it. And I knew that the meaty, garlicky flavor would make these eggs extra special. Served with warm and buttered crunchy toast, this made for a ...

Tapas at Casa Brindisa in South Kensington, London

Brindisa Tapas is no new comer to the tapas scene in London.  Long before the Brindisa Tapas Kitchens started serving tapas in 2004, Brindisa Kitchens were selling some of the best food and spices from Spain in whole sale and in retail.  We love ...

Dinner at Barcelona Wine Bar

I went back to Spain last month. Not physically. I was here in Boston all along. But I was transported back to the place of my favorite vacation when I had dinner at Barcelona Restaurant & Wine Bar in Brookline, Mass. As some of you guys may ...

Have to go back to tapas bar Barraca in the West Village

It seems weird to write about my not-so-great experience at Barraca within a week or two after the NY Times’ Ligaya Mishan wrote positively about the same place – she says “the food is straightforwardly delicious”.   ...

Spain Part 2: Cordoba and Sevilla

Ahh, Sevilla. I have been "warned" by a couple of friends that as soon as I see Seville, I might fall in love with it and want to move there. That's a big statement for them, and now I understand why. I loved the charm of the old city, the allure ...

Small Plates at Tico

I've waxed poetic about cheese before - along with chocolate, it is my top food love. From pimiento to mozzarella, from Venezuelan cheese to Filipino cheese, from ricotta and goat cheese to gouda, I love them all. And while I relish all kinds of ...

Boqueria Review – Wonderful Tapas… but not quite Spain

Boqueria is one of the more authentic tapas experiences in New York, but the more you fall in love with these experiences, the more you crave to seek the real deal across the pond. However, perhaps it's not such a bad thing to be the next best ...
