Tuna consomme with scallions and tomatoes- This was one of the specials of the evening and was ordered by a member of our party who does not eat pork and therefore could not partake in some of the other dishes. This was pretty much the only dish that was not meant as a sharing plate so he got it all to himself. Lucky man!
Full-flavoured chorizo sausage cooked in sherry- This very simple dish was all about the chorizo, plain and simple. When you have a quality product such as this one, why mess with it?
***Clams steamed with chorizo sausage- While the clams were nice, it was the tomato broth that really stole the show. We could have made a meal out of the broth and baguette alone!
Mushrooms in sherry cream sauce- Again, this dish proved that the chefs at Sardine Can are "sauce experts". This cream sauce was creamy without being so heavy as to overshadow the mushrooms. I must admit that when our bread ran out, we happily dug in with our spoons and finished it off straight up.
Truthfully, our night at Sardine Can was one of the most fun night's out that we have had in a while. This hip little spot lends itself perfectly to going out with friends and having a relaxing evening and, of course, eating great food. From the beginning to the end, with our bill served on an actual sardine Can, these guys have nailed it.
