Tapas in Brookline: Newly Expanded Taberna de Haro
Our favorite Spanish Tapas bar is newly expanded. They took over the space next door and now there is a bar and much more seating. They also have the outside patio which will be welcome when the weather turns nice.
What is so great about Tapas is that it’s family friendly. We brought kids and these are the dishes that everyone enjoyed.
Taberna de Haro Has New Bar and More Seating!
Gambas al ajillo (Shrimp with garlic and olive oil)
The shrimp is juicy and redolent of garlic. It comes out sizzling in a hot cast iron pan and it’s impossible not to dig in even though you’ll burn your tongue!
Patatas bravas (Feisty potatoes – fried, with a spicy sauce)
Can potatoes be feisty? These are deliciously spicy and crispy. Think French Fry but bathed in spicy goodness instead of ketchup.
I’m not sure why their Chorizo is so much better than anything I can buy but it is.
Steamed clams are not on the menu at the moment. Too bad. They were delicious.
The menu is always changing with specials and seasonal items.
