We All Enjoyed Bar Celona

I had lunch there on Monday with four of my relatives. The restaurant is modern with glass and chrome decor. I liked the high ceiling.

We had mostly tapas - castellana paella, oyster & cremini mushrooms, asparagus with an orange-colored sauce, blistered padron peppers, two orders of patatas bravas, a grilled peach salad, and lamb sausages with cannelini beans. We had one bottle of San Pellegrino and one green tea, plus two desserts - crema catalana custard and a small molten chocolate cake dish. The bill including tax was under $100.00.

We each enjoyed every dish. It was my first time for tapas, so I had no basis for comparison. My brother and his wife had them at several other places locally, and he even had them in Spain ( which might have them at a restaurant or two). He offered the most praise.

I might never go back just because of the trek (I live in Van Nuys and take the bus), but it's nice to know of one place that serves a tasty paella portion for one.
