Boqueria - What to Have?

I'm having lunch with my friend who is a reporter for the New York Times in a few weeks and he wants to go to Boqueria, which I've read is very good. Does anyone who has been there have any thoughts on what we should order? I don't get up to Manhattan very often, so I want to really enjoy it!

  1. I loved this place. You have to get the lamb tapas. The dates tapas were good too. We got a whole variety of things and loved every dish but it was the lamb tapas that we could not get enough of.

    1. The suckling pork is pretty awesome. Beer sangria is so much better than it sounds like it would be. You can't go wrong with the tortilla.

      1. Potato croquettes. Paella. White or red rioja.

        1. the sucking pig wasn't bad, but it wasn't my favorite.

          the croquetas were wonderful, as were the tortilla and the dates with bacon, almonds, and cabrales. the blistered padron peppers with sea salt were really simple and good. for dessert we shared the tulcinillo, which was a wonderful egg yolk custard with an almost rubbery texture that actually worked.

          1. The padron blistered peppers are not to missed. There not very spicy hot, but very good.
