    This place is so noisy and crowded. You have to wait more than an hour for a table. And it's not a Spanish place at all, they don't even have any Spanish beer and the tapas plates are very small.

    So many incredible tapas here. The dates stuffed with blue cheese and almonds and wrapped in jamón serrano are amazing. The churros were a bit eggy and the dipping chocolate was disappointing, though.

    Show up about 40 minutes before you want to eat, because unless it’s 5:30 on a Monday, you’re going to wait. Luckily, that’s just enough time to order and drink one of Toro’s excellent cocktails. Read more
