Tapas @ Jamonera, Philadelphia

Jamonera, Philadelphia
  
I stepped into Jamonera after a lazy Sunday afternoon of shopping on 13th street for Easter goodies for my nieces and nephews. I was pleasantly surprised at the decor of fiery red walls and chandeliers. I think this is what a modern tapas bar should look like.
 
I immediately ordered a sangria. If the sangria is good then the tapas must be good too. The sangria did not disappoint.
 

What I ordered:

 

1. IBERICO HAM CROQUETAS

– I figured that I have to taste the jamon since the place is called Jamonera. I liked the soft center with the crispy outside. It’s made of ham fat and is sweet and tasty.

2. CRISPY FRIED OYSTER SLIDERS

– the oysters were so fresh and crispy. I will order this everytime I visit.

3. BERENJENAS

– this tapa consists of crispy eggplant fries, smoked tomato salmorejo and manchego. The smoked tomato salmorejo is delicious !!

3. HUEVOS SUCIOS DE LUCIO

– this is Jamonera’s most popular tapa. The short ribs were so rich and will just melt in your mouth. I was afraid to trigger my high blood pressure so I had half wrapped to go. It’s even tastier overnight.

4. SPANISH BREAKFAST

– It’s macro’d on the picture below but this tapa is the cutest. Each order comes with 2 servings. It’s quail egg on top of duck chorizo. I found the chorizo on its own a bit salty but with the egg, it’s glorious. The trick is to eat the whole tapa in one bite.

5. SEA SCALLOPS A LA PLANCHA

– this is another popular tapa. The sea scallops, the uni butter and the pork belly were divine. I didn’t care for the fava beans. It doesn’t enhance any of the flavors. Actually, everytime I take a bite of the beans, I loose flavor.
