What's more American?...

...Then eating at a tapas restaurant on the outskirts of Chinatown in the middle of Washington D.C? La Tasca is a well decorated and bustling Tapas restaurant which claims to serve Spanish cuisine but really, it is just American food served "Spanish style" with Spanish names. We ordered the 9 dish tasting menu, and I still haven't decided if it was a good idea since we all left majorly comatose. L Tasca did not have the finesse or class of Tinto, but it still served up a satisfying albeit heavy meal. Favorites of the night included the lamb chops, steak and espresso dessert.

Gambos a Ajilo - Shrimp sauteed in garlic sauce
Ensalade de Tomatoes - Never of a fan of goat cheese until I had this dish :)
Pollo frito a Ajo - Fried chicken with roasted garlic
Patatas Bravas - Quick fried potatoes with spicy tomato sauce
Chuletitas de Cordero - Grilled lamb chops in peppercorn sauce
Salmon a la Plancha - Salmon, spinach and fried mussels

Calamares a la Andaluza - Calamari
Solomillo de Buey - Beef tenderloin with blue cheese
Tartita de Cafe - Chocolate cappuccino mousse cake with espresso sauce.
Definitely going to need some major salad detox after this weekend!
