    Amazing red sangria!! Everything is good. And the burger. All tapas all the time. Super crowded though. You'll have to sit touching a stranger.

    Usually a big wait but worth it. Not much room at the bar. Go across the street to the sushi place for some drinks as you wait

    That crazy good sauce you're tasting? Probably Coca-Cola and spicy gochujan BBQ sauce(yup, it's Korean). Get the recipe in KOREATOWN: A Cookbook. Read more

    Perfect date spot, and you can skip the long line mostly by grabbing a seat at the bar. Oxtail marmalade on bone marrow was standout. Grilled corn, Uni bocadillo, and mussels all good too.

    Be prepared to wait for your tapas, because this is a very popular restaurant and they don't take reservations. Great food, though.

    Great food for an amazing price. Garlic shrimp are so delicious. Also, the cold smoked eggplant dish is amazing. The only downside is that open kitchen, you will leave with mixed odors.

    The corn is amazing. Like cheesy grilled popcorn. Tuna tartare ia very well done. Jamon blanco is quite flavorful. Im not quite sold on the bone marrow but the flat bread that comes with it is good.

    Can't find a single thing I did not love about Toro. As a Spaniard - and Spanish food lover - I loved Toro's take on tapas. Some authentic and some with a fun twist. All delicious.

    A chic little spot where the tapas are intriguing little bites; the paella is excellent; and the vibe is cool. But the waits can be murderously long. Read more
