Today I want to share with you one of my favorite restaurants in Philadelphia, PA - Amada.  I don't think I need to repeat myself but I love Spanish tapas!

The cocktail is delicious too.

Amada is one of the many restaurants that is owned by Chef Jose Garces.  He is my favorite Iron Chef along with Mario Batali!  (Click here for my review on his other restaurants.)  I had the opportunity to visit this wonderful restaurant on a business trip a few years ago and still remember how good the food taste today.  In fact, Philadelphia surprised me as a foodie town.  There are so many quality restaurants here!

They are always full so book early!

Our party decide to try as many dishes as possible and the menu is big enough to satisfy every need!  I am very pleased with every dish we ordered.  The ambiance is good and our server is funny and attentive.  I simply cannot ask for more!

Aged Manchego w/ Truffled Lavender Honey
Pimientos de Padron
Flash Fried Peppers, Salbitxada, Sea Salt

Recommended by our host and it became one of my favorite tapas
I order it whenever I see it now!
Ensalada de Jamon
Serrano Ham & Fig Salad, Cabrales, Spiced Almonds

The presentation is delightful and the taste is phenomenal.
Hard to tell this is a salad from first glance!
Another favorite dish of the night!
Costillas de Ternera
Beef short ribs, horseradish, parmesan, bacon

Anything with bacon is good :P
