On one cold night, a few of us (Mr. Matzo Ball, Miss Poutine Esq, Mr. M&P, and myself) decided to get some dinner together. We wanted to have a real dinner as opposed to a bar meal like a regular Tuesday night. So off we went to Socarrat for some Spanish food. I've heard good things about it and Mr. Matzo Ball recommended it since he's been before.
To start off, we ordered a few tapas to share while our paella cooked. They recommend ordering the paella ahead of time since it takes a while to cook properly. The first tapa that we enjoyed was the grilled squid ($10). This was really good and perfect as the first dish. It was light and refreshing. The lightly grilled squid wasn't chewy at all. It was seasoned with garlic, parsley, and lemon juice. It reminded me of ceviche. I would definitely order this again.
Our next dish was the garlic shrimp ($10) which was fantastic as well. Super garlicky and sizzling as it came to the table, the shrimp were plump and juicy. This dish was perfectly garlicky including the remaining oil. We used our bread to dip in its garlic glory.
