Flamenco dancing and tapas?
Anyone have experience with Xuntas or Allegrias or any
other eatery that has flamenco dancing entertainment?
I really enjoy Xunta, they have a good selection of
Tapas (I like the grilled sardines, and the potato
dishes)and a pleasant fishing-village atmosphere. One
of the times I was there I witnessed a flamenco
performance. It was very low-key (there's no stage);
just a woman in a long skirt in a traditional pattern
dancing to canned music in the center of the
restaurant. It was a nice entertainment (I love
watching dance) but nothing hugely exciting. This was
several years ago when the restaurant first opened.
N(~) is a tapas bar (vs. restaurant), or was the last
time I visited (a year ago). I think, however, that
it is Brazilian rather than Spanish. The drink of
choice there is the caparinhia (sp?). As regards the
food: I have found they don't focus on this aspect of
the experience and often when ordered one or more
dishes prove to be unavailable. What I have eaten
there was unmemorable, which is not good but not bad
either. Still I think it's a fun place to go for a
drink (Crosby between Broome and Spring).
A friend of mine and I hung out at Alegrias till closing a couple of months ago and had a great time; they had live musicians and a good dancer, but we didn't try the tapas.
