It's the first time that I'm encountering a black Bomba($15)! Pushing a knife through the little sphere was easy enough. The knife slid through the thin, firm, and crispy crust with ease, revealing a mass of potato and spicy beef. Although it was a tad too spicy for me, I still enjoyed it very much. You can taste the individual components distinctly and the 2 different sauces enlivened the dish. We were trying to get every last bit of sauce onto our morsels of potato and beef!
The Suckling Pig($42.50) took us by surprise. It was nothing like the usual chunky and fatty suckling pig served at Spanish restaurants. The slab of meat was thin and I wasn't expecting much to be honest. Interestingly, beneath that almost paper thin crackly skin was a very thin layer of fat, and tender and slightly juicy meat. It was quite delicious and the pear infused with wine and honey was very good as well.
