Gambas El Meson

{gambas al ajillo}

{the best part}

I think the point of going to most tapas restaurants is to order multiple plates to get a taste of as many things as possible. At El Meson, I order 3 of the same tapa...gambas al ajillo. Tiny shrimp in sizzling hot olive oil, garlic and chile. Even though the shrimp are perfect, my favorite part is dipping the bread in the remaining sauce and garlic. Apparently that's the staffs favorite part too because they keep that bread basket stocked until there is not a trace of olive oil left. mmmmmm.
