Tapas and I have a good relationship. Why? Because they ensure that I maintain good food-sharing skills with good friends and relatives! It’s something I’ve been working on for a while and with the help of good tapas I’ve been successful (I think).
I had the chance to visit a wonderful authentic Tapas Restaurant near Waterloo thanks to a great friend of mine. Meson Don Felipe is the kind of place that you can imagine finding on a street in Seville or Barcelona, such is the rustic nature of the interior of this delightful establishment.
We orders Langostinos aioli (Mediterranean prawns with garlic mayonnaise), Tortillas (Spanish omelettes), Calabacines rellanos (Courgettes filled with mushrooms and cheese sauce), Tabla de Quesos (Cheese board) and a raspberry cheesecake. The tapas are made using fresh, high quality ingredients and the portions sizes are generous and went perfectly with the house red we ordered. I particularly loved the prawns, which were huge and delicious, the Aioli sauce was a perfect accompaniment to them. The cheese board was my next best part of the meal, I just love cheese…I don’t know why but I do. This board included manchego, Idiazabal and Picos Blue served with grapes and quince jelly. It was just wonderful.
Meson Don Felipe is a lovely family run business that deserves it’s reputation for having some of the best tapas in Waterloo.
