barlata tapas bar

The first time Jay took me to Barlata Tapas Bar was shortly after we returned from Spain. It was my first time there, and as a rather somewhat picky eater who isn’t the biggest fan of seafood I ate a lot, and I mean a *lot* of potatoes while I was there, as well as tortilla espanola. I came home and started craving both almost instantly and Barlata was the closest we could find to the tapas we ate overseas. We’ve been coming here several times a month for several years now, and it does not disappoint.

Barata has a cool, laidback vibe

This isn’t a fancy place, you can come here in shorts and a tee, but it also works for a date night in a cute dress. It can be loud there sometimes, as there are a lot of hard surfaces and it’s fairly open.

Jay always gets the sangria here and says it’s pretty good. Do order the patatas bravas, and make sure you grab a paella as well– they are absolutely fantastic.. I’m a huge fan of the Brussels sprouts as well. Do eat here. Many yums.
