Open Tapas Bar at Tapeo

Note: This restaurant is already closed.



It's been months since the PEx Gluttony Society had a meet-up. I remember the last time was November at Dillinger's (but I wasn't able to blog about it). Miko suggested that we try the newly-opened tapas bar at The Fort called Tapeo.



inside Tapeo

Tapeo opened during the last week of February and is currently on their soft opening. This small quaint place offers a good selection of wines, homemade sangria and of course, tapas!

Tapas is what the Spanish call their appetizers or snacks that usually eat with their wines. As Ate Mel explained to me, tapas started when the Spanish began using bread to cover their wine glasses to protect it from flies, then they added meat and other toppings to the bread.



Tapeo's Open Tapas is from 6pm to 9pm. For Php 450, we were able to try a good selection of tapas.

Paella

Paella

I loved that there's seafood paella. I found it a little dry for my taste. However, if you love the burnt parts, you'll love this.

Croquetas (Croquettes)

Croquetas

Served that evening are Patatas con Chorizo, Patatas con Anchova y Oliva and Manchego y Espica. Well, I'm a huge fan of potatoes so it's not a surprise that this is where I got most of my tapas. :)

Pinchos & Montados

Pinchos are small bread slices and cold cuts or other ingredients fastened with a toothpick. Montados are almost similar with pinchos, except that the ingredient is only "mounted" on top of the bread.

Chorizo Blanco

Albondigas with Roasted Bell Pepper
 

Hongo y Trufa

I particularly liked the Chorizo de Pavo (Turkey Sausage), Chorizo Blanco (White Sausage) for the pinchos while I liked the Hongo y Trufa (Mushroom and Truffle) and Lengua for the montados.

Empanadas

Empanadas

Tapeo also has a fine selection of empanadas, but I chose not to get one since I already ate too many pinchos and montados.

I also had Tortilla Patata y Trufa, which is a similar to fritata, and Tarta de Limon (Lemon Tart), which is a good palate cleanser in between bites of tapas. :)

We also shared a liter of their Sangria (Php 750).

We were also given grapes and cheese slices, love it! :)



 I was expecting to see cold cuts and more types of cheese but we were told that they'll be adding more items to the tapas bar. However, the service is excellent and the staff was very accommodating.

Thanks to Miko for introducing us to this place. I'd love to visit again after a few months.

  1. I admit, I was actually thinking of tapa of tapsilog when I read the title hahaha... This is actually the first time I've heard of Spanish tapas and my oh my they are sure a feast to the eyes. They are well-presented especially the pinchos and montados. I do have a taste for Spanish food so I'm keeping this place in mind. Thanks for sharing.
