I am from Spain and I have been living in LA for three years. As you can imaging, any of us are looking for home made food which remind us our country, our culture, our family and friends...
After trying a lot of Spanish restaurants and being so disappointed because they are sooo expensive for the amount of food they serve and so different from what Spaniards use to eat, I was desperate for the real Spanish food for almost two years!!
So well...I have been looking for the real deal!! the authentic Spanish food for a reasonable price. What was my surprise when I found a year ago Tinto Tapas!!!! Guys, this is for real!!! The atmosphere of the place is marvelous, the people working in there are amazing and the food!! uumm uumm umm DELICIOUS!!!
I invite you to try my favorite tapas: ""Datiles Rellenos de Queso de Cabrales con Bacon"", ""Albondigas a la Espa?ola"" like the ones our grandma used to make for us!!, ""Croquetas de Jamon"" and of course the ""pulpo""!!! ( Thank you Alex for always keep me in mind!!). Those are the ones that keep me going to Tinto :D ( I have to be honest!!)
But nooow!!! The chef has changed!!! and the PAELLA!!! uuuuf what to say about the new way the paella is made... it even has socarrat!!! (Valencianos sorry for my spelling!!) Thanks Mercedes to have those recipes and share them with us!!! My friends and I really appreciate your commitment!!
Moreover, I truly recommend Tinto for any occasion!!! The restaurant is a traditional place in where you can have business dinners, parties, thank of their amazing catering, friendly meals or just a romantic dinner. Oh!! And don?t forget the bar!! With Alex!!! You should go and meet him!! LOL
Go and have fun in Tinto!! You will thank me!!! They ALWAYS have a big smile :) Now that I live in NYC I miss your yummy food and your great service!! you should open one in here!!
