Las Tapas de Rosa

This little gem in a strip mall at SW Fifth Avenue and Eighth Street takes the edge off the day with nice wine, good tapas, and a relaxed atmosphere. A zarzuela de mariscos includes bay scallops and a broth that's beautifully light, properly salted, and delightfully tasty. The squid, mussels, and other parts of the casserole are excellent. The calamari is plentiful and lightly fried. Double your return on the zarzuela investment by dipping the calamari in the seafood broth. The real standout is the tortilla española with chorizo. It's flavorful, plentiful, and spicy.
