Amada - what to order

rmalonoski Apr 14, 2012 05:42 AM

Going to Amada for the first time. Other than the suckling pig - what should I be ordering?

Also, as there will only be my wife and I - how many plates should we be ordering?

Any must haves on the menu? Wat about dessert suggestions?

Thanks in advance for any help

    Order the pernil asado. That will at least give you a close representation of the pig.

    Some of my other favorites are the clams and chorizo, the grilled octopus, and the serrano ham salad.

      Love the lamb meatballs.

      The grilled spring onions make the trip worthwhile alone. As close to a calcot as you will get in US.

        I recall a braised pork flatbread that I really enjoyed.

          I love the garlic shrimp, short rib flat bread, and the cheese secection with lavender honey!
