Spanish restaurant in Philly
- Jay Schiff
I have heard there is a new tapas type resturant, around 20th and Sansom. Has anyone been there or know its name?
The new Tapas restaurant is called Cibucan. It is at 2025 Sansom Street, next to the Roxy Theater.
We really enjoyed it. Some of the tapas were wonderful - the salad with jicama, the seafood chowder, the tarta de cerdo, which is a pastry filled with ground pork, pears, etc. All were large enough to share 3 ways. Some were more ordinary: the octopus and the ceviche were fresh, but bland. Dessert was excellent. It has a pleasant atmosphere; BYOB. They do not take reservations.
