The Belmonte Red Bank - skip it

seal | Oct 25, 201501:29 PM     4

Really wanted to like this place. I love Red Bank and I really miss the filet appy at Red. But ...

I get the whole tapas concept, in fact I would eat at Cerveceria Catalana in Barcelona every night if it was local. But two less than silver dollar size sopes for $12?? That said they were flavorful. Also, get the terminology right - it is Patatas Bravas, not Papas Bravas. And please cover them with both mayo and hot sauce before bringing them out to the table! We had to ask for hot sauce as there was none on the patatas.

Please please please, if you ever go here do not get the Bourbon Walnut Cake. As a diabetic I am very careful about eating sweets. I took one small bite and knew this was not worth wasting even one of my precious carbs on. Not even the chocolate coating was worth eating. And my wife, the chocoholic agreed. We barely touched it. $10 for that is just criminal.

Next time I am going to try Chicky Boom in the No Joes space up the road.
