Pazo - "eh"

hon | May 19, 200810:43 AM

Style over substance and meager wine pours to boot!
Went friday with a friend, we had a reservation for 9pm, wasn't seated until $9:35. The place was packed.
We decided to share a few dishes, first up came the Tonno Crudo: 3 small cubes of tuna, the piece I had was so lightly dressed it barely had anything on it and screamed for something, thank God there was salt on the table. The tuna was good quality but for $8, come on. Next up was the highlight of the night, potato and manchengo cheese croquetas. Tasty, perfectly fried and a good amount. I would get this again! Then they brought out the crispy calamari which were not crispy, and a teeny amount in a teeny bowl. It just wasn't good and didn't get finished, the aioli that came with tasted like store bought mayo. The worst of the evening was next, the Shrimp with garlic, chilis and tomato. They looked like, had the texture of and tasted like those small frozen salad shrimp. Wha....? That didn't get finished either. Lastly, the grilled local asparagus with "romescu" sauce. The asparagus were good, the sauce was nothing more then sliced almonds and diced red peppers, hardly something that would adhere to an asparagus stalk.
Needless to say, I was not impressed and even though I loved the croquetas, I probably won't go back. There are too many restaurants in this town that are way better!
