Nancy's Quick Pick #3: España
España at 1118 Denman St. at Pendrell St. is a great little Spanish Tapas restaurant with delicious food. They do not take reservations and during my mid-week visit, there were people waiting for tables at the door later in the evening. There were so many things I wanted to eat on the menu, but I settled on the crispy chickpeas, the chicken liver, anchovy, and sherry pate on country toast, Padron style peppers, and an endive, serrano ham, egg, and manchego salad. They have a nice list of wines by the glass, and I chose a glass of red. I finished with coffee and a sherry trifle with pomegranate and strawberries. All of these were delicious, and I heartily recommend them. I fell in love with a little tapas joint in Barcelona, and I think Espana might be the closest thing to it that we have in town. Service was excellent as well.
