Eating {Tango}

Hello friends, we’re finally back! The past few months have been amazing in terms of dining in Seattle. With Dine Around Seattle in March and Seattle Restaurant Week in April, I’ve been running all over Seattle to try new restaurants! For Dine Around Seattle, I went to Tango Restaurant in Capital Hill for some delicious Spanish cuisine. The one and only time I had Spanish cuisine was at an acquaintance’s home where she made seafood paella, a Valencian rice dish. And boy oh boy, I was blown away. It was a pot luck party but I was fixated only on the paella which was luckily placed right in front of me!
For those of you who are new to this, Dine Around Seattle is a promotion where a list of restaurants offer 3-course dinner for $28 (and some offer 3-course lunch for $15). This is a great opportunity to venture to new restaurants around the area! Or for us poor college students, to try restaurants where we usually can’t afford to go to…
For starter, I had the Queso Azul which is the blue cheese soufflé with berry compota. The soufflé was fluffy and the blue cheese was not overwhelming.
And for main course, the grilled rack of lambs with herb roasted potatoes. The portion was rather small, but when you’re scrounging off other people’s dishes, the portion is just right hehe
Grilled beef tenderloin with crispy onions and Yukon Gold potatoes
Moqueca de Peixe (with scallops, mussels, prawns, calamari, tilapia, chilies, farofa, coconut broth, dende oil, rice) If you’re looking for original authentic Spanish food, I recommend ordering this dish. As opposed to lamb racks and beef tenderloin, the Monqueca de Peixe is not something you can order in other restaurants. Seize the opportunity!
My favorite part of every meal- DESSERTS! I had the Citrus Tres Leches which is a milk drenched sponge cake. How could you possibly go wrong with that?!
For the major sweet tooth grown-up, the El Diablo is a bittersweet cube of rich dark chocolate with tequila caramel sauce.

If you like a good deal and good food (who doesn’t?!), look out for Dine Around Seattle this coming Fall!
