I had heard great things about Tia Pol – diverse fare, fresh ingredients, and excellent technique – all at fairly low prices. Sometimes the first two get lost w/ tapas in the States since the strong flavors can often mask subtleties in freshness or expertness to the average taste bud. So it was off to Tia Pol, which i missed on my last NY trip, in hopes of finding a cheap alternative (re: excellent food) to the Bouleys & Jean Georges of NY.
1. Chorizio w/ Chocolate
Bread, chocolate spread, & chorizio. The sweetnes of the chocolate tempered by the spiciness of the chorizio but it didn’t quite work. Perhaps if the chocolate were warm?
