“Let us go for tapas in the farmers market”, the Danish Film Critic-guy texted me the other day. “I wanna feel urban and cool”.

I laughed because of his way to put it for at least five minutes, before texting a “yes, I would love to go” back. And so we went. Friday evening after work, and we weren’t the only guests. The place was packed, but hey – if you want to feel urban and cool, you should go to a place that is packed.

Tapa Del Toro serves tapas, and you can either sit down at one of the high chairs close to the food, or hang out with a glass of wine, enjoying the company as much as the food. We had chosen the first of the two options, and I was hungry. One of the benefits’ with sitting at the small bar is that the time between pointing at the food and getting it on your plate is about five seconds. The chefs’ worked fast at the other side of the bar, and when we ordered chorizo and some potato snacks we watched them prepare it for us. It was delicious, especially with a glass of cava on the side.
