Tuesday at Sanafir with Ignacio & Diana
Hope everyone had a fabulous tuesday! I met up with Nene and Diana at Sanafir, and it was extra exciting as Ignacio had never been to Sanafir before! It's always exciting introducing people to restaurants I love.
It was a packed night, and we managed to grab a spot on the patio. The chef brought us complimentary teasers with ahi tuna. These were way better than the salty crackers they brought Diana and I that one time!
Diana and I both ordered the Patatas Bravas for $4 with crispy smashed fingerling potatoes with a spicy chili-tomato sauce. I figured this visit I would order some dished I've never tried. This was a whole lot of potatoes!
I also decided I would order an entree. I had never ordered an entree on a tuesday before - which made me wonder why, as I have tried aout 20 of their appetizers. Since everything is 50% off on tuesdays, I decided I would order a main and get leftovers for the next day. I ordered the Paella Valencia with grilled tiger prawns, clams, mussels, & chicken (no chorizo) for $10. Talk about a massive dish. This was huge! This could easilly feed 2 or 3 people alone. I probably only had a few bites, and got the rest to go, but the few bites I had were amazing! It was filled with so much variety and flavor, and their was an abundance of seafood! I would totally get this again.
Diana also ordered her regular Tandoori Prawns for $4 with chickpea and arugula salad. This time she made sure she asked for no heads.
Ignacio ordered some cerveza and the Egyptian Spiced Striploin for $10.50 with cauliflower puree, roasted tomato & eggplant with madera jus. He said this was good, but as far as value, I think my Paella is definately a larger portion compared to the steak, as you get just as much meat in the Paella. However, a 7oz striploin for $10.50 is an amazing deal!
It was a great tuesday night with my friends :)
