For dinner on Thursday night, and to send In-Young off to her Icelandic vacation in true Grub Club style, Pam, In-Young, and I met up at Spain for tasty tapas and wine. The place is a little divey, but it's the kind of neighborhood fixture you like to be a little rough around the edges. It just wouldn't be the same with a new coat of paint on the walls. We had a great time. Even the ancient, surly waiter--Señor Grumpypants, as Pam calls him--was on his best behavior and kept the plates of meatballs coming. All I have to say is that the meatballs at Spain fall mainly into my belly.
1) Mmmmmeatballs. 2) Spicy potato fries/chips. 3) Torta topped with hot sauce.
After filling up at Spain, we headed east on 13th Street to Momofuku for dessert.
1) Jelly doughnut soft-serve. 2) Chocolate doughnut soft-serve. 3) In-Young having a doughnut-flavored ice cream and cereal-flavored milk shake.
