Brunch at Toro

今日は、South End にあるタパスレストラン、Toro にブランチを食べに行って来ました。

Today, we went to Toro, a tapas restaurant located in South End, to have brunch.
ここは外にもテーブルがあるので、Poirot も一緒に楽しめます。予約は受け付けないので、外の席を確保するためちょっと早めにレストランに到着。

They have several tables outside, so we can enjoy our meal with Poirot. Since they do not accept reservations, we arrived there early to secure an outside table.
Poirot もおとなしく(?)座っています。

Poirot is quietly (?) sitting.

"Where is my lunch? I am so hungry!"

Bread. Not too bad.
Patatas Bravas (Fried Potatoes with Alioli and Spicy Tomato Sauce)。


Potatoes matched well with Alioli sauce and were very tasty. Tomato sauce (hidden under potatoes) was not too spicy.
Tortilla Espanola (Egg, Potato and Onion Omlet with Alioli)。


This dish was served cold.  I guess this is normal as it was served in the same way in Spain, but I prefer hot.
Jamon Serrano Redoncio Iglesias (Serrano Ham)。


This tasted much better than the one I usually buy at a supermarket.

"I want to eat, too!"
Asado de Huesos (Roasted Bone Marrow with Radish Citrus Salad and Ox Tail Marmalade)。

牛の骨髄のロースト。骨髄はあまり好みの味ではありませんでしたが、付け合せのオックステールののったパンとサラダはとてもおいしい!食べ終わった後の骨は Poirot に。大喜びで齧ってました。

I didn't like bone marrow too much, but loved salad and ox tail on bread.  Poirot was so excited to get the bone after we finished.
Maiz Asado con Alioli y Queso Cotija (Grilled Corn with Alioli, Lime, Espelette Pepper and Aged Cheese。


Corn was very sweet and matched very well with Alioli sauce + cheese. This was very delicious. You can't go wrong with Alioli sauce!
Beef Tongue Hash。


It had spicy pepper inside. This was tasty as well, but by the time this dish was served, we were too full to enjoy it.. We tend to order too much!
食後はレストランの近くにある、ドッグパークへ。ここでは Poirot も自由に走り回れます。

After our great meal, we went to a dog park nearby. Poirot can run freely here. "Who wants to play with me?"

He found another pug and tried to become friends, but he was chased by this dog so he ran away...

"Is this guy gentle to me?"

"Oh, you chase me, too??"
