Eating is almost always more than the food ingested. Yes, at times it is just about how much food can we get for the least amount of money and how fast can we get it and cram it in. The great thing about Sanctuaria is how one feels once he or she is within. This is a fun place. It is also a little odd and a little quirky which is fine by me. I've had enough mundane in my life already. Get settled in, order any number of creative and delicious cocktails, and get started ordering as many plates as your group might like, 3 or 4 at a time. Keep adding as you eat. Make sure you know what the specials are...we almost missed them. Pass everything around and come up with a good way to decide who gets the last amazing meatball or tostone and watch the winners face light up...ah, what a prize.
We had (among other things), Beggers Purse, Vacca Frita, Perrito de Silencio, Papa y Tochino Torta Frita, Cabrales Cigars (food, not a smoke), and bacon wrapped dates. Nestled within these dishes were savory stewed meats, seafoods, spices, cheeses of all kinds, purees, veggies, sauces, pastes, and jellies. Every dish had something special in it.
When I am offered food and drink that is full of care, full of thought, obviously by people who know what tastes good, even if it is a totally new combination of ingredients and here to for untasted, I begin to feel I have found asylum, protection from ordinary, uninspired eats and drinks. Now, gather some friends, and find your Sanctuaria.
