La Taberna Tapas Coupons and Deals
Read what Chicago Reader food critic Mike Sula had to say about La Taberna Tapas: "I was happily shocked to find that the house paella is an ideal amalgamation of pork, chicken, chorizo, mussels, calamari, and shrimp. But most importantly, it has a perfect ratio of crispy socorrat and distinctly al dente, fat-saturated, stout medium-grain rice. I can't think of many paellas around town that can touch it. One innovation I can definitely get behind is the chile-and-tequila-spiked white Sangria Brava -- only slightly spicy, it goes down easy. And in the midst of a list featuring mostly Spanish and South American wines, don't lose sight of two sidras -- Spanish hard ciders -- listed among the bubblies, particularly the dry, tart Isategui from the Basque region."
