Tortilla Espanola

As a frequent patron of Bocado, but also a frequently ordering the same dishes each time, having the opportunity to try things I normally wouldn’t order with the Bocado Experience was delightfully unexpected. Once we sat down I was quick to order the Mango Sangria, it was perfectly sweet with no complaints from me, I have never unsatisfied with any of Bocado’s Sangrias. The dinner for Worcester Foodies was set up with a Start, Tapsas, Main, and Desert. As a start they presented a beautiful board with Manchego Cheese, nutty but creamy cheddar that accompanied with piquillo peppers and fig was a burst of flavor on the tongue.  A tapa’s I enjoyed the most were the Tortilla Espanola and Calamares Con Ajo. The Tortilla Espanola was a spanish style omelet consisting of potatoes, egg and onion with red pepper crème fraiche and tapenade side. The dish was more potato heavy then egg, it appeared the egg was layered between the thinly sliced potato and the red pepper crème was very faint, overall it was a very tasty dish when served with the nutty tapenade. The Calamares Con Ajo took an ordinary fried calamari and seasoned it with a garlic, lemon, parsley, and orange horseradish cream. The horseradish was not overpowering and the citrus notes accompined each taste, this also appeared to be a big hit at the table, that two people who normally don’t eat calamari enjoyed it.  The meal also included two types of Paella: Paella Clasica and Paella de Carne. For dessert, hot Postres Churros y Chocolate was served. Overall the meal was amazing. -CA
