Xixon's New Location - Anyone been?
I ate there last night. Food was awesome! The service was another story. 2 waitresses upstairs for about 8 tables... lets just put it this way, one table next to us got up to get themselves bread and another table next to us got up to get take away boxes from the bus station for their food. We tried to tell the manager at the end of dinner that the food was great and service not so much... but he wasnt so interested in our commentary. As for the food...
We had jamon serano which was as tasty as expected
Manchengo in a olive oil/rosemary sauce- sinfully good
Tortilla Espanola- The best ive had in miami (and ive had it pretty much everywhere bc its my fave)
Razor Clams- we were just in barcelona and expected these to suck in comparison but they were unexpectedly rich and delicious
Gambas al alijo- very good big shrimp, spicy garlic sauce (couldnt stop dipping my bread)
Chorizo in an apple cider- the cider wasnt so strong but it gave an interesting twist and the chorizo was delicious
Bait Snrimp with Huevos Revueltos- was weird... but my mom liked it... this was the only dish id advise against. the bait fish were fried but didnt really taste like much
Croquettas de Bacalao- perfect. Very puree'd inside, not filled with chunky bits of bacalao like ive had before. I enjoyed them very much
Fried Sardines- Very big sardines. I thought they were great. My mom and boyfriend didnt enjoy as much, as they prefer a smaller saltier sardine.
We had good sangria. It didnt have any fruit inside but was flavorful and refreshing.
All in all it was a very tasty meal. Ill probably pick up from the market next time due to the service issues... but will certaintly go back!
