Another thanks to @mariacarmen and so many others who seem to like Jaleo!
We knew we were ordering paella, so made every attempt to hold back on the tapas.
First, this teeny, tiny cone with a nice crunch and each smidgen of each each ingredient represented. Eggplant, roasted red pepper, avocado, crisped quinoa. I could have eaten a handful…but I wouldn’t have appreciated it as much.
This was a “crafted” alcohol free drink with citrus and thyme. Very nice; not too sweet, very refreshing, interesting flavors
A very good version of gambas Gambas al Ajillo
But for me, the star of the menu, was the gazpacho. Poured table side over diced cucumber and pepper that gave it a nice crunch! A light, smooth, and apparently bread free version with great balance I attributed to the perfect amount of the perfect vinegar. Better than mine!
The chorizo on potato puree was just okay. I’m not often a fan of Spanish chorizo texture. The potato puree was a nice texture, not at all gluey, but just didn’t add much.
And finally, the Arroz paella “style”, with head on shrimp, butifarra, and chicken. The rice texture and socarrat were perfect, nice cook and flavor on the proteins, maybe a little too much saffron flavor, delicious aioli type sauce.
At table-side, they moved the proteins aside, stirred the rice a bit, served portions with proteins on top, and left the rest at the table. We just about finished.
It was a great time. Thanks again all!
P.S. I think this is the recipe for the gazpacho.
