Restaurant Review: Ramblas Tapas

In yet another effort to leave San Jose, we headed to the Mission District of
SF. In an area dense with Mexican food and other ethnic eats, we randomly chose to eat at Ramblas, a Spanish tapas restaurant.

The interior was pleasant and the walls were adorned with art by Spanish artists. Or at least just Picasso--that much I did recognize. Before ordering any food, we celebrated the Spanish culture by ordering a large pitcher of sangria. I have never been to Spain before, but I imagine the sangria just flows like water over there.

And now, the food:

From left to right: wild mushroom paella with sage and butternut squash, fried potatoes w/spicy sauce and Spanish tortilla.

The potatoes were fried to a good crispness and the accompanying sauce was contained a good amount of savoriness/hotness. The Spanish tortilla was stuffed with potatoes and tasted very good as well, though I don't remember the flavor. Finally, the piece de resistance of the meal was no doubt the mushroom paella. Firstly, the rice was just right. Next, the sage and squash served as wonderful additions--sage infused a delicious aroma and the squash added a nice hearty texture. Mmm. I could eat me some of that paella right now.

As tapas often are, those at Ramblas were tasty but petite. Nevertheless, I wouldn't hesitate to go back again.

Price: ~$17 (+tip and tax and Sangria!)

Rating: 9.5/10 (delicious+)
