Awesome Martinis, Good Not Great Tapas

It was a lovely dining experience at Papas Tapas.

Thanks to Menuism for sponsoring our dinner…and for CheapEthnicEatz for planning a special event and hosting!

Papas Tapas has an AWESOME Ladies Happy Hour where I sampled 2 scrumptious martinis:

Martini des Isles, made with a banana liqueur, with a tropical feel to it.
Including 2 totally cute gummy crocodiles!

Charging Elephant Martini, made with Amarula. I’ve always wanted to try Amarula and it was SO tasty. Kind of like a creamy baileys taste in the martini format.

We chose a nice variety of tapas for our group, with some papas fritas (fried light potato slices) that were a nice side dish with it.

My fave was the quail with prosciutto. The prosciutto was nicely wrapped around the quail (and not salty, fresh) and it was served with fig chutney, a kind of chutney I had never tried before. Very tasty.

I was a bit disappointed by the Portuguese pastries we ordered. They had a savoury almondy taste to them, but honestly they were a bit on the tough side.

A great cafe au lait that really hit the spot at the end.

Oh and yes…more pricey than I expected.
But that always seems to happen with tapas.

Not the best tapas place I’ve tried in town.

But an enjoyable meal, washed down with excellent drinks and company.
