Rolled into Healdsburg on a Friday night to meet up with some friends for a happy hour at Bravas, Sonoma County’s first Spanish “Ham and Cheese Bar”.
Lovely outdoor patio next to the bar is great for drinks on a hot summer afternoon.
First things first! Cocktails. Off the Gin and Tonics cocktail menu I present the Chubasco! St. George Terrior, Rosemary, Lemon and allspice. Very lovely aroma and flavor. Very clean.
Salmorejo Soup - Chilled Tomato and Almond Soup. It was amazing! I felt like I was eating homemade, fresh soup. Whole almonds accompany this soup.
Escalivada - Marinated Fire Pit Vegetables with Garlic Toast
Delicious dish to share!
Bocadillos! Duck Meatballs, Tomato Sofrito, Green Olive Tapenade! Get the balls!! They are to die for!
Wackiness will ensue with good friends and an iPhone! We also shared: Patatas Bravas (fried potatoes, spicy tomato sauce and alioli), Fresh Gulf Prawns (pimenton salt and pepper), Croquetas (creamy chicken), Bacon Wrapped Dates (blue cheese, marcona almonds). Everything was perfect!
Typically, I dislike ice-cream of any flavor. However, I gave this one a go. Strauss Family Organic Vanilla Soft Serve toped with Extra Vergin Olive Oil and Sea Salt... piece de resistance! Lovely light flavor dessert - I could have had two of these. I am going back!
Love the saying on the bottom of the business card.
Heading to Diovla tomorrow!
