***** (5 stars)
I’ve been to Cafe Ba-Ba-Reeba several times, but my latest visit was particularly good. We must have tried about half the menu, and everything was really a home run. Highlights included:
stuffed piquillo pepper
goat cheese baked in tomato sauce with garlic bread
fried shisito peppers
grilled beef skewer*
tinned yellow fin tuna*
roasted chicken empanada
iberico ham croquetas
roasted dates wrapped in bacon
Everything was great, but I’ve starred my very favorites.
Our server was terrific, making sure the dishes came out properly spaced.
A pitcher of red sangria is a great choice to share three or four ways.
And of course we finished with Olorosa sherry.
