Cobras & Matadors

— Originally posted on Yelp on 12/3/09 —

We were in LA for a few days,  just finished shopping at The Grove, and were looking for a place to eat. Found this place on Yelp and it was only a couple blocks away. It was early on a Saturday night but the place was already busy, we didn’t have reservations and we had our 2-year old with us. That combination doesn’t usually make for a good dining experience. So we asked the hostess if we could do some take-out and they were happy to oblige.

Here’s what we got:
– Skirt Steak – ordered it med. rare but it looked like it was well done. Still tasted good. Loved the corn.
– Socca cakes w/ goat cheese – absolutely loved these things. My favorite dish of the night. Soft and flavorful. The goat cheese was great with it.
– Mussels – plenty of them for a tapas dish. Good flavor.
– Shrimp – loved all the spices, cooked perfectly
– Risotto – good consistency and flavor, not too thick or watery
– Churros – these were some short, fat churros. Very soft and pillowy. Great w/ the chocolate sauce.

Everything was great for the most part. I’m sure it would have tasted even better if we ate there. Definitely not a kid-friendly place but I’m glad we could get food to go.

    Thank you! Tapas are sort of like appetizers that you can share with your table, but you eat it as a meal. You can just eat them yesluorves though. But they have a bunch of different kinds though. I’ve seen everything from ox tail to ham and cheese. We do get a prize, but I don’t know what it is yet. Woo hoo! haha
