my bday tapas

My birthday was almost a month ago, and the Food Pimp's birthday is a month after mine! January 28 - so don't forget to wish him a happy birthday! So for my birthday, we went to Costa Brava for happy hour. Our favorite spanish restaurant here. It's like being transported to Spain!

Cabrales cheese on bread.

$8 pitcher of sangria!

bread and aioli - we forgive them the frozen sysco type pistolettes... because it's more about the stuff that comes with the bread!

Like olives!

And morcilla! (blood sausage - crispy, rich, sweet and not as minerally as some may think)

Garlicky snails.

Patatas Bravas - not much brava going on here, unfortunately...

Pulpo...so yummy and tender, yes, tender when cooked properly.

Fried anchovies! Love them.

So, at one point when I ordered the last 3-4 items, the FP was thinking it was going to be a hefty bill.... but, it was happy hour! I think our bill was $46. Totally worth it.

happy belated bday FH! and happy bday to your husband too!

your bday dinner menu looked great - i really like it at costa brava but you're right, the patatas bravas aren't that spicy.
