We tried La Tasca ... (HR for short) last evening for the first time after reading good reviews on Trip Advisor and Gringo Tree. The owners-brothers greeted us warmly and followed up with friendly, attentive service throughout the evening. There were two other tables of guests when we arrived but, by the time we left, we were the only ones in the restaurant. I attribute that to the hour ... we finished eating around 7:30 PM, which is fairly early by Cuenca standards. We decided to make a meal of several kinds of tapas, each priced under $4. They included Croquetas de Pollo (chicken croquettes), Albondegas de Salsa (meatballs in a carrot and onion sauce), Eggplant Vinaigrette and Papas Bravas (potatoes in spicy sauce). All the food was good, but my favorite was the eggplant - - I loved the tangy vinaigrette. The croquettes were a bit disappointing in that the filling was mostly béchamel and not much chicken, but they were still tasty. When, not if, we go back we'll try the spinach or ham croquettes. We also want to try the Spanish enchilada and the octopus. Our meal was complemented by a half liter of red wine which was served in an arty ceramic pitcher. Total cost including tip was $20.
