From there we ordered the Presunto Mac n Cheese with Gruyère, Havarti,
a parmasean sauce and topped with presunto. Heavenly!
Next were the Cogumelos Salteados: Sautéed portabella, crimini &
shiitake mushrooms finished with thyme & oregano.
People either tend to really love mushrooms or be disgusted by them.
Of course I have always loved them and these were so light,
well-seasoned they were easily a perfect addition to our tapas tasting.
The Camarao Alhinho were pan seared and braised in rich roasted
garlic with a white wine butter sauce.
This was not a low-cal meal by any means but with tapas I always
feel it is merely a few bites of several things. So what can it hurt?
Lastly and surely not the least of all dishes, was the Cordornizes a Cabo Verde,
or quail. Rubbed with a zesty herb-spiced house blend, it was a
delight of succulent morsels, each bite better than the previous.
When I go to a restaurant, I do not think merely of the food and drink,
but the ambiance, service, decor and a great deal else.
Upon entering the women's restroom at Sangria's I found an orchid on the
vanity, automatic lights and a no touch trash can (which appeals to the
germaphobe in me - yayyy sanitation!)
Beyond that, there was also high quality toilet paper - this is a detail a lot of restaurants skimp on, but like the cloth quality yet recyclable handtowels next to the sink,
is something a patron appreciates and notes when considering their return.
I love this restaurant and plan to return as soon as I am able. For anyone
that finds themselves in Attleboro make sure you stop by and let me
know how your meal is.
