|Dining at El Chipiron|
The extraordinary talented Chef Pablo Gomez opened the doors to his first venture, El Chipirón this weekend. His Spanish roots are evident with the influences on the menu and inviting space.

The gorgeous chic restaurant is serving up authentic tapas and pinchos paired artfully with Spanish wines, Spanish beers and exquisite craft cocktails. Expect to find carefully selected cheeses, melt-in-your-mouth cured hams, squid ink meloso rice and more. The restaurant officially opened July 1st on South Lamar. I had the opportunity to meet Chef Pablo along with a preview of the menu and can attest to both his passion and talent. Here is a first look:

The cold Porrusalda is a delightful summer soup. It is the perfect blend of Spanish Potatoes and Leeks with added pops of flavours to include pickled beans.

Chef Pablo introduced us to the Perfect Gin & Tonic with Alkkemist Gin. A couple tips he shared with us it to serve the cocktail in a cold glass and adding a dash of salt. True to its name, this was truly the perfect gin & tonic.
What else is in store? Chef intends to have exciting events wine and cheese tastings to ham cutting lessons to cooking demonstrations.
