Tapas at Boqueria

Last night I met some fellow CPTC marathoners at Boqueria in SOHO for some sangria and tapas. Yum! The food was delicious and the company was even better. We discussed the details of marathon prep, obsessed about the weather report for Boston, and even made a packing list.  Special thanks to Ani G. for organizing the get-together AND taking the photos. Ani is the best :-)

Torta espanola – layers of egg and potatoes. Accompanied by a lemon sauce, olives, spanish cheese, and marcona almonds.torta espanola--layered potato cake!

Albondigas – lamb, veal, and beef meatballs in a DELICIOUS tomato sauce. I thought I tasted a bit of cinnamon in this dish.albondigas--lamb, veal, beef meatballs! in tomato sauce & cheese with delicious bread for dipping!

And of course, some Pomegranate Sangria! I limited myself to one glass (didn’t want to get too tipsy on a weeknight!), but I could have easily had much more. It was very light and fruity. I can’t wait to recreate this at home.sangria
