La Boca – Santa Fe

Posted by moderndaygourmet on November 8, 2009

I haven’t written about restaurants in awhile, despite visiting some good ones, but I loved this one so much that I had to document it here.

On a weekend trip to Santa Fe, we had dinner at La Boca, a tapas restaurant in the historic area near the plaza. I almost could not decide what to try because so many things looked good. We ended up sharing 3 plates:

Trio of 3 spreads with flatbread:
– Carrot/garbanzo hummus with cumin
– Fire roasted eggplant puree
– Mint-feta cheese spread
Mashed butternut squash with melted manchego cheese and pumpkin seeds
Panko fried calamari

There were many other items that looked amazing as well, such as:

Bruschetta with mushrooms and truffle oil
Roasted artichokes with Spanish goat cheese, orange zest and mint
Fried potatoes with sea salt and olive oil, served with roasted garlic aioli
Mediterranean salad with figs, olives, feta, honey viniagrette, and greens
Panko crusted fried oysters
Canneloni with lump crab, scallops and manchego cream
Spiced lamb kebab with mint yogurt and cucumber salad
Hangar steak and grilled shrimp with manchego creamed spinach

See what I mean? I think I should visit again for about a week and eat there every night till I’ve tried it all. Well….that might be a little crazy. But the food is simply amazing.
