First off, check out my Ride & Review video HERE:
My wife took me here for my birthday to try the Vaca Vieja (old dairy cow, popular in Spanish food). Here’s what we had:
Empanada with octopus and cheese inside. Really nice. The crust reminded me of pot pie dough.
Fried squid on a bed of fried zucchini. This was excellent!
Mussels with a pimento broth.
Wild mushrooms with sliced grapes and goat cheese. Totally unique and delicious.
As a mid-course we had this “Bomba Rice” with squid ink and squid, both on top and mixed into the rice. Amazing.
The steak was a cry-aged 38oz tomahawk for just $108. Crazy! This would be over $160 in a midtown steak joint.
It came with fries too, which were awesome.
The steak had both great flavor and great aroma, and was probably the best version of Vaca Vieja I’ve had so far.
I give this an 8/10 because it was slightly overcooked on the outside and slightly undercooked on the inside.
Dessert was a crepe filled with berry cream and served with yogurt ice cream. Really nice and refreshing.
I will definitely be back here again. I should note that they also have a great selection of Spanish imported beer.
