What WOWS me about Lolo's is their unique and savory spin on Spanish style tapas. You won't get this anywhere else in the world, literally. Only in San Francisco, on 22nd Street. :) The hot sexy chefs hail from Mexico City and... TURKEY. Yup. So now it's so obvious right? When was the last time you had Panko and spice-dusted shrimp, topped with tropical relish and spicy aioli, served on a thinly sliced JICAMA WRAP instead of a taco wrap? Served with a creative squeeze of lemon wedge dipped in cayenne pepper? (RIGHT -->)
RIGHT--> Very thinly sliced octopus tiradito: urfa isot flakes, sea salt, and cascabel aioli.
On of my recent visits here last, a dear friend joined me for Friday chillax to celebrate friendship. He, being a wine collecter, brought from his cellar a Altesino 1997 Brunello di Montalcino... Tasting notes follow:
Altesino 1997 Brunello di Montalcino:
"absolutely incredible....... heavenly on the palate. massively intoxicating aroma - our server juan carlos asked to try some as he could not resist the nose once he opened the bottle for us!"
-Dark ruby and red color. Blackberry, licorice and grilled meat aromas. Full-bodied, with layers of beautiful tannins and fresh ripe fruit and sliced mushroom. Very, very long. So powerful and rich, yet racy and beautiful. Still needs some time (1997 Italian blind retrospective).
-13 years later - its rightful perfect. patience.... and rewarded grand.
