mi Tomatina paella bar is in the heart of Winter Park. A small friendly place with more tables outside on the sidewalk and side than on the inside. The servings are all wonderful, small portion enough for everyone to taste, wonderfully seasoned, and presented. We started with the TAPAS TRAY - BANDJEGA DE TAPAS, Croquetas Jamon, Empanadas Chorizo, Albondigas & Tortilla Española (all delicious); and then onto a 1/ BABY OCTOPUS – PULPO EN VINAGRETA - Baby octopus cooked to perfection, then chilled and tossed in shallot & roasted pepper vinaigrette, 2/ HONEY LAVENDER LOCAL SHRIMP on a Bed of fresh baby greens, and 3/ SHRIMP ARROPADAS
- Jumbo Florida shrimp wrapped in Serrano ham. I had the Octopus, and it was cooked wonderfully, delicate and not the rubbery-texture that my wife and many others to do like. This was one of the best Octopus dishes I have ever had. And then we ended our evening with a trio of FLAN, Vanilla custard, caramel drizzle; CREMA CATALANA
Lemon custard, caramelized sugar; and SAN MARCOS CAKE, Vanilla rum-soaked pastry, house made cream, topped with caramelized sugar. We all enjoyed our Bottle of the House Red Wine, and music by the musicians who arrived and seranaded the diners. - We made our reservation online thru OpenTable a month in advance. I chose it out of the blue because it was not too far from the Hyatt Regency Hotel, and OT was offering a 1000pt bonus time, and Spanish and Tapas are something we like a lot. We highly recommend mi Tomatina.
