El Bulli

Finally visited El Bulli in Surry Hills last night for some amazing Spanish Tapas!

Here’s what we ordered:

Croquetas de Jamon – Croquettes filled with white sauce & ham rolled in breadcrumbs, lightly fried & topped with allioli

Paella – Traditional rice dish containing seafood, chicken & traces of chorizo

As opposed to ordered the standard entrèe and main, I recommend you just order a dozen mixed entrèe/skewer plates. It’ll provide you with a different range where everyone can share.

For drinks I highly recommend the “red” sangria! Was just as good as the stuff I was drowning myself in last year at Running of the Bulls in Pamplona!
