Restaurant review: La Bodega Vancouver
For birthday parties, a romantic date, taking friends out to dinner or just to satisfy a craving for Spanish food (and by Spanish I mean, food from Spain), La Bodega Vancouver is by and large the best place I’ve been to in a long time. I am always fond of flavours from Spain (given my personal connections). La Bodega is located on Howe, between Davie and Drake.
The first time I went to La Bodega, I went with the same super close friend whose birthday we celebrated last night. All of La Bodega’s dishes are amazing: Patatas Bravas (hot potatoes), Montaditos de Cerdo (pork slices on bread), Chorizo (spicy sausage), ChampiNones (mushrooms). I had been here last summer with Mom and a few other friends as well, but this time apparently it was our lucky night (or it was the fact that it was A’s birthday!).
Nine people had enough food and the bill wasn’t even in the realm of $ 240 Canadian. I mean, this was unbelievably inexpensive (that being said, there’ve been times before when I’ve had hefty bills at La Bodega, but apparently last night we chose well!). I would seriously recommend this place to anyone who wants really good Spanish tapas and great service.
Make reservations, though. The place can get packed!
[UPDATE - Went there recently with friends and it's still awesome]
