Double Date: Eats at Mundaka + Wine at the Aquarium

When Brian and Pia invited us to go to the Aquarium's Sip and Sea event with them, I offered to use my gift certificate to Mundaka for dinner. So happy that we did!

We ordered a parade of delicious food and washed it all down with a bottle of sangria.

The favorite of the night: hamburguesa - a mini lamb burger with pickled cauliflower, served with truffle fries. Our waiter warned us we would be unwilling to share, but we didn't listen. Still, we did order two, so we only had to share with our significant others. Next time, I'm ordering my own!


What else did we eat? Escabeche - duck breast escabeche with tarragon cream...


Boquerones - Mediterranean white anchovies with garlic chips; fried garbanzos with white truffle salt; Datiles - bacon-wrapped dates with almonds and goat cheese; Aceitunas - marinated Spanish olives; Bravas - potatoes with brava sauce; and Croquetas - smoked salmon, horseradish, and bechamel.

After Mundaka, we headed to the Aquarium where we explored the exhibits and drank some wine. I liked the 2009 Handprint Merlot from Meeker Vineyard and the Lucas J Cellars' 2009 Syrah. These were Sonoma wines. We also tried some wines from the San Joaquin valley, but I didn't see the labels.

What a fun double date!
