|Not so great sangria|
The sangria was watered down and just flavorless. JD said that it isn't typically like that so I will just have to take his word for it. I will visit Mi Luna again because I enjoy their tapas but I will pass on the sangria! Maybe the mojitos and margaritas are better but only time will tell.
On a more positive note, some the tapas are worth a tasting and others are not. Below is a sampling of some of the Hot Tapas:
Maruno a la Parrilla
Grilled lamb chop with wild mushrooms and couscous topped with demi glaze. I liked this dish but it had a tad too much sauce.
|I love my lamb but next time go lighter on the sauce!|
Moroccan chicken pie with cinnamon almonds wrapped in phyllo dough. This was really good. It had a very interesting taste and I was a fan of the texture.
|Almonds and cinnamon make all the difference|
Caracoles con Champinones
Escargot and mushrooms in white wine cream sauce. I love my fair share of snails but this dish was a little bland.
|I like my snails to have a little bit more flavor|
Beef tenderloin tips and potato on a bed of wild mushrooms. This is one of L.D.'s favorite dishes.
|Mushrooms on this dish have a little heat to them|
Championes al Ajillo
Mushrooms sauteed in garlic, onion, parsley and fresh lemon. Because I am a mushroom lover, I am a fan of these. They have a little kick to them.
Lightly breaded fried squid with spicy tomato sauce. L.D.--who just so happens to be a calamari aficionado--said that the calamari is nothing to write home about.
Chicken and saffron rice croquettes with basil pesto, roasted bell peppers and alioli. These were fantastic. I tried to eat just one but failed miserably.
|These are worth fighting for|
My overall view of Mi Luna is this, what's good is good and what isn't good is either okay or bad. There are so many items on the menu, I have not even scratched the surface. I still recommend going and finding your perfect tapas combination but make sure you stay away from the sangria!
