After work, we decided to hit up this local tapas spot for a little sangria and snacks. Boqueria is modern and good looking on the inside. The food, which was decent, is a fusion version of spanish tapas. We shared a few appetisers; potato croquettes, Brussels sprouts and chrorizo, and this cheese and chorizo fondue. The fondue (not pictured here) and Brussels sprouts were hands down the favourites! We also ordered this rice dish, which was basically risotto that had been panfried to give it a crispy layer around it. Although the presentation was beautiful, the taste was not. It was really oily and at the same time really bland. We told our server our thoughts and she seemed at bit embarrassed because she recommended it. Anyway, let's get to the main hero here who was the sangria! It was a rosé sangria, which I had never had before and it was amazing! The secret ingredient was tequila which gave it this nice kick against the fresh fruit in the sangria. Refreshing, pink and perfect, we downed a few pitchers of those and left glowing!
