Mole Y Abuela Tampa
Each plate was even better than the prior. Will definitely be back.
The food was delicious. We liked everything we had. Especially the chicharrones, lamb chops, and churros. The ambiance was nice, if slightly loud. But we could carry on a conversation among the four of us. The service staff was knowledgeable and attentive. The biggest concern we all had was the value of the experience. The portions seem small, even for tapas. And surely was not worth a total bill of $300 for all of us. That was for a 4-5 shared tapas to start, each of us had a fish/meat entree + side, 2 drinks each, 2 shared desserts. Again, delicious food, nice ambiance, great staff....price to serving sizes needs an adjustment.
This place was fantastic! Let's hope they keep it up. We share 6 different tapas and 2 desserts. Our favorites, Tuna crudo and Carne Asada. Sangria was very good after they "fixed" it for us.
Plan to go back for the rooftop experience.
We had several selections from the tapas section of the menu as well as a few glasses of wine by the glass. They were all very good and appropriately priced. We also ordered the lamb chops a la plancha from what appeared to be the entree section of the menu. That dish was also very good, but the portion priced at $34, which would have been appropriate for an entree, was barely larger than a tapas serving. If it was priced at $24, it would have still been small, but would have been acceptable. The place has a lot of potential, but right now, it's a bad deal.
