My Dallas food experience continued as we enjoyed my first dinner there at the cutest little Mediterranean tapas restaurant called Sangria. The restaurant offers European and Mediterranean small plates with delicious and unique beverages and cocktails. It was the type of atmosphere I loved, and despite the heat we sat outside. My friend had come here once before with a larger group of people and thought it would be a fun place to try with a smaller group…say…of 2 people.
We started with, my favorite, a pitcher of White Sangria which was wonderfully refreshing for such a warm evening.
And because we both love to eat just about everything we picked a bunch of different tapas, that hit our fancy, to share.
We started with the Bacon Wrapped Dates stuffed with Almonds and Cabrales Cheese and the Seared Scallops with Parsnip Mash Potatoes and Veracruzana sauce, which were fantastic and may have been our favorite dish of the night.
Next was the Shrimp and Crab Croquettes with Mojo Verde and Gnocchi “Parisian” with Mediterranean Cheeses and Pistachio-Walnut Pistou, which were both really good as well.
The dishes just kept coming.
Chicken Pintxo: Marinated chicken, red and green beel peppers served with spiced apricot sauce and parsnip puree. This was nice and light, and I especially love the grilled flavor of the chicken with the spiced apricot sauce.
Butternut Squash Ravioli topped with Parmesan, Brown Butter and Sage. Incredible and reminded me of Thanksgiving. Not too heavy with just enough sweetness.
And last night but not least the Crispy Potatoes Served with Local Organic “SSU” Egg, Onions and Chorizo. This seemed like a good idea when we ordered, but we were so stuffed that we just couldn’t finish.
I was surprised how delicious and homemade all the food tasted. It was a great restaurant all around in my opinion-delicious food, fun atmosphere, unique drinks, and great service. What more could you ask for?
And to finish the night out-we ventured out to experience Dallas nightlife…and what a crazy nightlife it is.
