I met up with an ex-coworker to gossip about what's been going and to share a few (or lots) of bites. We decided to go to the West Village and enjoy some more culture and food options. Since we both really like tapas, I suggested Tertulia and he happily agreed.
We started with the Embuditios ($15) which is a selection of 3 charcuterie meats. We received 2 types of salami and a ham. All salty, fatty, and melt in your mouth. The first was a plain salami while the second was spicier like chorizo. The ham was fatty and rich similar to Iberico but not nearly as good. (Disclaimer: while Iberico is on the menu, I didn't feel like paying for it.) This was a good portion for 2 people.
To lighten up the meal, I picked the Remolachas ($12) which is a salad of raw, pickled, and smoked beets with pistachio nuts, cheese, and a horseradish vinaigrette. This salad was not only refreshing but also well balanced with heartier vegetables like beets paired with crunchy pistachios, creamy pungent cheese, and a spicy kick from the dressing.
