Fabulous Tapas

Yesterday, we went to Alma Restaurante in Hongdae, near Sangsu station. We had the place to ourselves, since it was late afternoon and before the dinner rush. We did notice two of the tables had “Reserved” signs on them, so if you want to go at a more normal time, you might want to make a reservation. The restaurant was small and very nicely decorated with blinds and shades painted with Spanish city names and pictures of Spain.

Everything we ordered was delicious, and we will definitely be returning. We started out with a pitcher of sangria, the perfect refreshing pick-me-up for a hot, muggy day.

There were several items on the menu that we wanted to try, but that they were already out of at 4:30 in the afternoon! I guess we’ll have to go back for an early lunch sometime. The bread was warm and served with an aioli and tomato-garlic-olive oil blend.

Next up: a fabulous bombeta with mashed potatoes and minced beef inside.

Then we had these little sandwiches of pork, cheese, and a slice of chile pepper. They weren’t on the menu, but I hope they’re offering them the next time we go!

Finally, we had a pork belly dish that was melt-in-your-mouth delicious.

We were planning to order the homemade pineapple ice cream for dessert, but we were too stuffed! I can’t wait to go back and try a few more of their tapas.
