Tapas at La Tasca | Eating out
The other day I had what is probably a 'farewell' dinner of sorts with friends before I head off to Japan. We chose La Tasca as one of us had a discount there but it still ended up being pretty expensive. The best way to describe my opinion of La Tasca is good food, but shit service. The place wasn't very busy at all yet we had to go out of our way to get someone to come over and serve us. And at the end we were slapped with a service charge of £10! A waitress actually cornered one of us after we'd paid the bill and were leaving the restaurant to tell us we had underpaid by not paying the service charge in full even though apparently it was not mandatory...very strange.
Anyway the food was pretty good, if pricey. My friend and I shared a jug of mango sangria, and then we had a few dishes of Paella carne between is which was delish. I still don't understand the concept of tapas though, having grown up with two younger brothers the concept of sharing my food does not appeal haha. I think if I went again I'd have preferred just to get a load of the typical tapas dishes (and learn to share) rather than get the paella - as I did leave the place with a massive food baby from trying to finish up the leftover paella (I hate leaving food). Also I tried churros for the first time, and omg I have been missing out! Have you been to La Tasca before? xx
