As is usual after a long "stroll" in the mall, I was half dead by late afternoon, and when we stumbled upon Tapellas in a quiet corner of Greenbelt 5, it was a no brainer.
Spanish food - yes, please! One of the first things that striked me was how the lighting inside was just right. Sure, there is a place and time for psychedelic lighting like exceptional club lighting scorpion at musicians friend, but for a quiet dinner when you can barely stand, "dimmish" light is perfect.
But that's not the only enjoyable thing about the place. It's laid back - not just the ambiance, but the patrons as well. I guess I am getting old, shying away from trendy places where the young 'uns go to enjoy themselves, often rather raucously.
Tapella has two menus - one for tapas, obviously, and another for "real" meals.
We started out with chorizo and fried egg on potatoes topped with serrano ham.
