Azafran - yum

We finally made it to Azafran last evening. *Wow*
All four of us loved it. The dining room is eclectic with a bohemian feel. We did not feel cramped but we are used to eating in small BYOs in center city. The service was very good even though they filled up completely while we were there. The noise level was not too bad. We were able to converse at normal levels even when the dining room was full.

The food was terrific. Two started with the tuna ceviche and they thought it was not the best but ok. Two had the salad which was excellent. For entrees two (the guys) had the special of a double pork chop stuffed with chorizo and brie (If thats not a heart attack on a plate...) over a mashed veggie that resembled potato. The ladies shared some tasting plates. One was the pulled chicken with corn cakes. That was really great. We also had the pork tenderloin on skewers with peanut sauce and the empanadas with ground beef. For sides we had the plantains and rice and beans. Nothing was particularly light but then we didn't order the fish dishes. There were a lot of fish dishes on the menu.

The dishes were all well seasoned but the chef didn't over spice the food. We were happy that
nothing "knocked our socks off" with heat.

For dessert we had the fried dough sticks with chocolate dipping sauce and the vanilla cheescake. The sticks were way too heavy. We couldn't cut them with a fork. The cheescake was heavenly.
