Kyle and Fernando and I went to Cesar last night and had tapas.

I drank a sour apple drink made with Calvados but I didn’t like it (and it was $8.25!)

Something I did like was the food, even though they ran out of the fried herb potatoes. The whole menu is pasted below.

We had:

Fried shrimp and squid (very yummy!)

Canape de boquerones (which was not that great weirdly fruity from the orange zest they added–Kyle initially thought it was cranberry, which I guess shows how cranberry relish-esque the zest made it)

Roasted eggplant and new potatoes with romesco (very good, came with bread as well)

Salt cod and potato cazuela (the waitress described this as “like a baccala” though she meant “like a baccala mantecato”–also yummy)

Bread pudding (orange overkill–the caramel sauce was too tangy, not rich and velvety enough for my liking)

tapa del dia: rabbit & wild mushroom stew with leeks & fried garlic, $10.25

roasted marcona almonds, $2.75

a plate of jamón serrano, chorizo soria & lomo embuchada, $7.75
