My husband and I celebrated our 4th Wedding Anniversary this past Tuesday. To honor the occasion we had dinner at Si tapas in Dallas on Sunday night. We have always been a fan of tapas (small plates) since we gave it a try when we were in Chicago, IL.
We found this restaurant when we searched for tapas restaurants on Urbanspoon. It came up #3 on the list of Best Tapas Restaurants in Dallas/Fort Worth. We got the babysitter and were on our way. We tried to call and make a reservation but they only accept reservations for parties of 12 or more. The woman on the phone told us we should be fine as they don’t get that busy on Sunday nights anyway.
It took us about 50 minutes to get there from where we live. It is located in a very urban district with lots of small restaurants and bars. It was easy for us to find parking on the street but I am sure on a Friday or Saturday night you may be better off carpooling or taking a taxi as there is not much parking to begin with. They do offer Valet parking Thursday – Saturday from 5 PM to closing.
Their address is:
2207 Allen Street
Dallas, Texas 75204
The restaurant is actually in a house so when we first drove by we kind of overlooked it. It is very quaint. There are some tables out front and on the front patio. When you walk through the front door, you immediately see the bar to your left and a sitting room to your right. Directly ahead of you is the main seating area. They also have more tables in an enclosed back patio. When the weather is nice all the doors are open and you practically feel like you are outside. We sat in the main seating area.You can see pictures on their website, Si tapas.
We ordered a pitcher of Sangria to share. We drank some while we perused their menu. It was pretty large and it took us a while to narrow down exactly what we were going to order.
Here is what we ordered (yes, there was just the two of us):
You are given a basket of warm, fresh bread once you are seated – we ate 3 baskets.
Platos de Queso con Fruta del Tiempo – cheese plate w/seasonal fruit select four cheeses $15.00 We chose the Manchego, Idiazabal, Cabrales and Nevat cheeses. Also on the plate were slices of kiwi, grapes, cut up figs, fruit jelly and pecans. – It was amazing!!!
Chorizo Soria – Spanish cured chorizo soria style – Just thinking about this is making my mouth water.
Jamon Serrano – cured Spanish serrano ham – The flavor is just amazing!
Almejas a la Marinera – fresh littleneck clams in wine garlic sauce $8.50 – very tasty!
Patatas con Chorizo – potatoes salted w/ Spanish palacios chorizo $5.50 – my husband’s favorite.
Atún a la Plancha – fresh seared tuna w/ four styles of ground pepper $8.50 – loved the crunchyness of the black pepper on the outside.
And for dessert I had the:
Crema Catalana – Catalan style cream brulee with white chocolate shavings$7.50 – I was in heaven…
So overall…absolutely amazing!!!! The food was just the best I have ever eaten. The services was great. Everything came out fast and was just the right temperature. It was probably the best dinner my husband and I have had in a long, long time. I can’t wait to go back. The drive and the cost are totally worth it!
