Review: Amada, Philadelphia

stormshadow | Sep 30, 2008 11:55 AM

The wife and I recently visited Philadelphia and stayed right down the street from Amada. For those of you who don't know, the chef recently was on "Iron Chef", so we decided to give it a shot, especially since we had never had Spanish tapas.

We ordered an array of tapas, including: a shrimp scampi-like dish, lamb meatballs, grilled shrimp, parmesan artichokes, clams and chorizo, shortrib flatbread, and a few I cannot remember.

The tapas were very good, but very overpriced, and if you're a decent cook, you can replicate much of this in your own kitchen--it just didn't seem special enough, albeit was served on fancy plates; big deal.

That, and a few of our tapas orders were not placed correctly.

The bill for two people with a decent amount of food was around 150 bucks.
