Just google if you are interested to know more about the history and how the mouth-watering custom of tapas small plates was invented. I did and found various versions and stories about Tapas and all very interesting.
But if you are more interested to find out what we had that night. Here you go...
|Our only cold tapas for the night... Picture is not sharp enough... Stuffed preserved red pepper with Fetta Cheese|
|Baguette topped with onion, leek, sausage and mozzarella cheese|
|Vietnamese spring roll|
|Bite-size grilled pork ribs|
|Sautéed Mushroom on flat bread|
HH and CL bought a jumbo size pizza from Peperoni (Greenwood Avenue), by then we were all too busy eating that no picture was taken.
For wine, we had in order:
|Gerard Bertrand 2007 Chardonnay - I actually enjoyed this very much.|
Flavors of apple, white cherry and pear. Notes of butter and spice give the finish touches of richness.
|Pierre Amadieu Cotes Du Rhone - Very nice juicy red... Not too tannic, works well with the overripe cherry flavors.|
|De Loach 2007 Russian River Valley Zinfandel - Surprisingly sweet for my liking|
|Rioja Bordon Reserva - Full of flavour and delicious... but rather to have it with food (tapas), then alone|
|Cono Sure 20 Barrels Limited Edition Merlot - Deep, dark ruby red colour, this is an elegant, expressive and vigorous wine. Complex and full in mouth, this is a Merlot with character.|
