Transport yourself from West Hollywood to Spain in seconds when you enter Tinto Tapas España in West Hollywood. This restaurant and bar offers authentic Tapas selections, traditional large plate entres and amazing wine and homemade Sangria. The interior is authentic and true to the Andalusian and Moorish flavor that embodies Spanish Architecture including a stone wall that pays homage to the famous Aqueduct of Segovia. Each time I enter the establishment I am reminded of the time that I spent in Spain when I studied abroad in the Summer of 2000.
The waiters and bar tenders are decked out in traditional red San Fermin scarves that are worn in Pamplona during the festival of the running of the bulls. Go with friends and share an assortment of tapas and sample the two types of Sangria(White & Red). The white Sangria provides a more subtle taste then the traditional red Sangria however both are equally strong and full of flavor. Pitchers are also available and are a good value. They also offer $5.00 Happy Hour Specials on Monday/Wednesday(5-11pm), Tuesday(5-7pm), Thursday/Friday/Saturday(5-7pm/11-12am).
Some of my favorite tapas include the Gazpacho Andaluz, Don Quixote i Sancho Panza(Cheese & Ham Plate), Patatas Bravas(Spicy fried potatoes w/ aioli), Croquetas de Jamon(Ham Croquetes) and Setas al Ajillo(Sauteed Mushrooms).
