For anyone who lives in the Bay area a must place to eat and drink is Barlata Tapas Bar. It is owned by chef Daniel Olivella and his partner Team Astana rider Chechu Rubiera.
A few of my friends and I had the most incredible dinner there. A few of the items we tried and loved were...
Gambas ajillo Tiger shrimp/garlic/olive oil/adobo
Grilled steak Angus beef/chimuchurri sauce /french fries
Vegetarian paella Saffron rice/mixed vegetables/vegan stock
Lata de setas Mixed mushrooms a la plancha /parsley picada
For wine a must is the 05 Mas Donís Barrica, Montsant.
Daniel has to be one of the coolest people I have met since moving to the Bay area. So if you are in town make sure to stop by and grab some of the best Spanish food you will ever taste!
They are located at 4901 Telegraph Ave. Oakland, Ca 94609
