Cova Tapas y Sangria, Revisited ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥


The following photos tell the story of two good friends who almost died of hunger.

They ordered up a storm. Cova saved them.

Had some old favorites which tasted as perfect as the first time...

Ravioli de Rabo de Toro - oxtail, foie gras, shiitake mushrooms, oxtail jus

Mollejas de Ternera - veal sweetbreads, goat cheese puree, balsamic reduction

Huevos Cabreados - fried eggs, shoestring potatoes, crispy chorizo, alioli

Foie Gras con Manzanas - caramelized duck liver, apple puree
(they ran out of apple puree and gave us mashed potato)



Also tried some new dishes which instantly became new loves.

This salty-sweet combination was magic in my mouth!

Espuma Bacalao - salt cod foam, potatoes, olives, garlic confit

Salpicao de Mejillas de Ternera - wagyu veal cheeks, paprika, garlic, olive oil. OMG!!!



The only dish we wouldn't order again is the pretty red and black babies...

Pimientos Rellenos de Morcilla con su Salsa - piquillo peppers stuffed with
blood sausage, green apples, red pepper coulis



I wanted Pinkerton ice cream, but the one dessert available that night was the not-so-great Catalonian-style creme brûlée.

I originally wanted to try 2-3 more additional tapas. Thank God they were all out of stock. We could barely breathe after the meal!

Despite the dessert boo-boo, it was all in all a very good dinner. Cova is my favorite new restaurant and I can't wait to be back.
