These were taken at the La Bodega in Leawood, Kansas last weekend. I would have gotten more food photos, except everyone was starving and started mauling their food before I could snap some photos. LOL.

It must have been happy hour when we went because we got half-priced tapas. The sangria was half-priced also, which was good because at $30 a pitcher normally it would have been overpriced. I would pay that much for the blackberry sangria at Carrabba’s, but not this one. It was good, but not that good. I think my sangria actually tastes better. $15 a pitcher was a good price for it and I think that’s how much it should cost regularly. šŸ˜‰

The meatballs were just okay. The sauce is described as spicy, but the flavor was pretty mild. To be honest, it was kind of bland. It could be me, though. I’m sodium deficient and have low blood pressure issues, so I’m constantly craving salt and prefer my food to be on the salty side.

The chicken and chorizo skewers, on the other hand, were very flavorful. I would order it again, even at full price. The patatas bravas were really good. Hideki ordered it and I got to try some. It’s supposed to be cooked in a spicy tomato sauce but it wasn’t spicy either, which was just right for me because I can’t handle very spicy foods anyway. However, unlike the meatballs, it had good flavor.

Overall I really liked La Bodega and would go there again. I love the idea of tapas and being able to sample various dishes. The portions are small so you don’t have to worry about getting too full. I wish we had one here. I guess I’ll just have to wait until I’m back in the area. Perhaps next time we visit our friend Anthony who lives nearby.

I would recommend going during happy hour when they have half-priced tapas though, because order several things could get expensive. It will add up pretty quickly. Half-priced tapas will allow you to try twice as many dishes without going broke.
