Toro Tapas in Boston’s South End

OK. I ate a lot at Toro, so I’m going to keep the writing short and sweet, but basically, you should definitely hit up this restaurant if you are in the Boston area. It’s a ‘hot’ spot, so put your name down and grab a drink somewhere else till it’s your turn.

The Pimientos del Padron-hot green peppers with sea salt in the above pics. They were delicious, get them. Lightly spicy and fried.

Their bread is from Iggy’s, which has been voted best bread in Boston. I went through a whole bowl by myself. I still think about this bread.

Grilled squid, a special of the night. Cooked well, but I didn’t really enjoy the spices.

Uni Bocadillo-pressed uni sandwich with miso butter and pickled mustard seeds. Buttery and nice, it lasted like a grilled cheese sandwich.

Costilla de Buey- braised short rib of beef with armagnac soaked prunes and pommes puree. Pass. The beef wasn’t as tender as it shouldn’t have been and the flavors were unimaginative.

Fried pork belly. This was AMAZING! So crispy and smooth. Make sure to try this if you like pork belly.

Maz Asado con Alioli y Queso Cotija. You can’t never go wrong with this dish and they make it wonderful here. A must try.

Churros with a chocolate dipping sauce. Bad. Just Bad. Burnt on the outside, raw on the inside.
