Friday night with the girls at Tapeo

Last night marked the last day of eating out this week. It was the perfect week to practice my intuitive eating skills (which I’m still learning). Trying to count calories in between so many meals out would have just stressed me out. Instead, I enjoyed every (healthy) meal at home and every indulgent bite out. It worked out quite well in my opinion and dare I say that’s the only opinion that matters right now. I am listening to ME and me only. πŸ˜‰

So yes, back to the dinner out. My friend Christina moved to Cincinnati last year and when I got an email from her that she was coming to Boston for a quick business trip, I knew we had to go out. After a fancy 3-course meal at Rialto the night before, Christina’s suggestion of Tapeo, a local tapas restaurant, was perfect. I wanted lots of little bites, a casual atmosphere and of course sangria! πŸ˜€

Hi, Christina! :)


There was 6 of us in total so we ordered a whole bunch of tapas to share. I think a good crowd of people is perfect for a tapas restaurant – this way you can taste a good part of the menu. πŸ˜‰

Bread + bean spread


Plato Mixto – Manchengo Cheese, Cured Ham, Roasted Red Peppers & Olives


Gambas al Ajillo – Sizzling Garlic Shrimp


Queso de Cabra MontaΓ±es – Baked Goat Cheese with Tomato & Basil (<– this was the best! We ended up ordering a second one. :) )


Oh yes, sangria. We got 2 pitchers. I definitely had my share πŸ˜‰ [please excuse the lipstick marks]


Pesto and asparagus pasta (not exactly what it was called, but that’s definitely what it was :) …off the specials menu)


Gorditas – Prunes Stuffed with Goat Cheese & Wrapped in Bacon (<– my second favorite dish. The bacon was awesome!)


Pechuga Andaluza – Grilled Chicken Breast with Saffron, Ginger & White Wine Sauce


Costillitas de Vaca – Beef Short Rib in Rioja Wine Sauce


Queso Con Miel – Goat Cheese with Honey & Sweet Onion



The dinner was really fun! I think Tapeo is decent – nothing too amazing but solid overall. The best part was definitely the company. :mrgreen:

The girls (Pam had to leave early for another restaurant week dinner. See, it’s not just me that’s taking advantage of this! πŸ˜† )


How was YOUR Friday night?

PS – I’m doing a whole lot of cooking this weekend. Stay tuned!

  • Looks so good!
    When I move back to Boston this summer, I think one of my first meals might have to be tapas. I can’t get them here in the boondocks of PA and it’s one of the best meals. I’ve never been to Tapeo, but love Taberna de Haro!
    Have a great weekend

  • That goat cheese looks to die for!

  • I’m really getting into tapas lately- but I can’t eat cheese and I swear it is in 95% of tapas, what is up with that?

    Yay for yummy sangria with good friends- can’t wait to see what you are cooking this weekend!

  • I’ve always wanted to try that place, looks like a blast!

  • i’m with you on tapeo, but your two favorites would’ve been mine, too! jealous of your cooking this weekend… ive lost my mojo :/

  • Jen

    That looks so fun! I’m going to Bar Lola next weekend, have you been? Excited to see what you are baking and cooking!

  • Elina

    Jen – I’ve never been but heard decent things about Bar Lola. Hope you have fun there! I still am dying to get to Toro but never have the patience to wait for hours.
