I’ve been trying to meet a friend for lunch at Spain for the better part of a year. Factors so far have conspired against us, so last night my better half and I grabbed take out from them in the interest of finally seeing what all the fuss is about. I lack the culinary descriptive abilities of eecue, so suffice it to say HOLYDAMNCRAPTHISISGOOD. We over ordered by a long shot, sharing an order of shrimp in spicy sauce with Spanish rice, an egg and vegetable tortilla (which is essentially an omlette), two empanadas and a slice of flan/bread pudding combination. Add in the included bread and side salad and we had way too much food. Not everything was knock-your-socks-off great, but the shrimp and rice and tortilla were all-killer, no-filler. The flan/bread pudding was probably the least satisfying of the bunch, only because the flan part of the equation was a little bland. I’m not a huge flan fan anyway, so my judgement may not be the best.
Now, I’ve never been to Spain, nor have I really eaten a lot of Spanish food. So those of you that are looking for some kind of perfectly authentic Spanish experience may be disappointed. I just don’t know, and frankly I don’t really care. Whatever it is I loved it. There’s also a small deli that carries a varity of Spanish and (I think) Argentenian imported packaged food. If you’re looking to eat in, they do have tables and waiter service, but bear in mind that it’s a small place in a strip mall. If ambiance is your priority, you should probably head elsewhere.
