Incredible Traditional Spanish Cuisine!

Although having vaguely heard of Tapas Papa Fritas, and a connoisseur of excellent Spanish Cuisine – I didn’t pay much attention to this eatery, I am very astonished to say, because of its name – Fried Potato Snacks! Boy was I wrong! Being of Spanish heritage, I was flabbergasted with Tapas Papa Fritas’ traditional atmosphere, an atmosphere emitting Basque, Andalusian, Moorish, Castilian and Austrian regions feel, décor and food! This appealing and large eatery smacks of being in Spain! From being almost obscure in its external surroundings, once you step up the path to the front door, past the traditional-style plant-filled veranda, see their fabulous outdoor seating area, you have arrived to the old world of España! Having grown up in a Spanish-Cuban atmosphere, I am well versed in the fare offerings, what I should anticipate both traditionally and in any nouveau prospects. I was impressed and satisfied! While absorbing the atmosphere, we were seated near a window whereby we had the opportunity to admire both the inside and outside, as we experienced a fine bottle of Pinetti Notte Pinot Grigio Delle Venezie 2014. My wife and I were pleased to see some of the old-world as well as fine-dining traditions followed by our Server, Sina who showed his expertise in not only fine proper serving, but old-world rapport, pleasantry and knowledge. Elegant service from table cloths, silverware and the use of an enoteca for wine. As newcomers to the establishment, we decided to try something that would give us the widest array of samplings, so we started with their Tapas Deluxe Special which included: Gambas al Pil-Pil, Chorizo, Txistorra, Stuffed Dates, Queso Manchego, Chicken Skewer, and a Lamb Shank – all prepared and served to perfection. And, just as is in the Old World, no rush… patience, enjoyment and privacy abound. We then went for the main course. My wife thoroughly enjoyed (I did too) her serving of Paella Valenciana in a traditional style with saffron rice, fresh clams, mussels, shrimp, tender chicken, extraordinary txistorra, peppers, onions, tomatoes and peas – beyond delectable it was! I proceeded to have their incredible rendition of Conejo (Rabbit) Romescu Catalan-style, with a soft to the palate peppery tomato almond sauce over an excellent rendition of traditional saffron rice. If you enjoy rabbit as I do, this dish is for you – amazing! I believe it needless to say, by the end of our meal, we had no room for dessert of which they have a wonderful assortment of Spanish selections. It is no wonder why this eatery has received the accolades it has on media, from critics and awards alike –the food, the atmosphere, the staff, the accoutrements and the vibe are magnificent. Our profound kudos to Chef Joseph Gutierrez and his incredible art. As unfortunately so many ‘Traditional’ Spanish in the Valley and across the country tend to do, sway to changing the great things which don’t need changing from our past – the only nouveau here is the first time patron. We look forward to visiting them as frequently as possible to get our taste buds wrapped around more of their fabulously authentic cuisine, Flamenco shows and live Latin music during the weekends. Can’t wait for the next visit. Excellent ambience, service, hospitality and food – next time I’m going for my favorite: Zarzuela (Seafood Stew – some may know it as Spanish-style Bouillabaisse)! Bon appétit!

ATE THE FOOD..WENT UNCONSCIOUS AND WOUND UP IN AN AMBULANCE

My friend and I went unconscious and into convulsions after eating the Paella and some sangria. You are risking your entire weekend (and possibly life) by eating the food here. My doctor said there was poison or cleaning agent in the food. The worst part is that the restaurant made us pay full price (which my family took care of as my friend and I were sent away in separate ambulances) and they never apologized. I would not recommend this place, not even to my worst enemy.
