Tapas and Flamenco

Last Saturday night, Doug and I took Momma to an amazing restaurant called Spain Restaurant and TOMA Bar in downtown Tampa to celebrate her birthday.

We traveled as a family to Spain a few years ago and this cozy little place sure brought back all of our fond memories of the trip. Doug studied abroad in Spain as a young fellow and his love for the country certainly transcended to Momma and I. We simply fell in love with Madrid.

The start of the meal began with the traditional serrano ham, manchego cheese, and olives. We then shared calamari, chorizo and potatoes in a spicy tomato based sauce. And, of course, no meal is complete without a little Roja! Every bite was delicious!

In Spain, we had a very special treat that all of us were happy to see on the menu...Chocolat & Churros!

The Flamenco dancers and guitarist were beyond talented and we thoroughly enjoyed the after dinner show.

If you live in or visit Tampa, I strongly suggest this special hideaway. We are already booked for the next Flamenco night!
