Juggling my time
We’re back- finally. As school is on a brief break, I have finally had the time (and energy) to review another restaurant in C-Ville. I chose Mas, a Spanish tapas restaurant. Joining me is Mark Nizer, a professional juggler and good friend. His juggling and humor are world class, but his stance on Star Trek leaves something to be desired (Voyager? Really? DS9 is clearly superior).
The first thing I noticed in Mas was the interesting interior, consisting of two floors. While we did get an entry floor table (the entrance is on the top floor) to make it easy for me, there are no reservations so there could be a chance that you may have to go down steps, so consider that if you are handicapped. I’m afraid I can’t give Mas a great rating on accessibility for that reason. There is a handicapped parking space right next to the entrance, which is nice.
Mas is my favorite type of restaurant, tapas, which are small dishes that are shared. We chose a few and then asked for the waitress to bring a number of interesting random dishes. We got a plate of chorizo sausage with bread and spicy pepper to start, which was spicy and tasty. Next up, a bowl of brussels sprouts with parmesan and bacon oil was surprisingly tasty (although it can’t beat the sprouts from Parallel 38 – I guess they didn’t use enough bacon!). The bowl of extremely soft baked tomatoes was probably my favorite dish (and Nizer’s, as well), although the temperature nearly burned our tongues. The bowl of potato slices (with butter!) was tasty but nothing special (and also pretty hot). The 4 whole squid with tomato sauce was very tasty if not a little dry. The final main dish, a rare steak was perfect for me, not only because it was exceedingly rare, but also because it was oh so tender and sliced thinly so that my one-handed knife easily cut through it. Finally, the dessert of apple pie was a nice closer, not too sweet and very sharp. All in all, it was a very fun and tasty meal that was perfect for my re-entry into the blogging mindset.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Interesting, tasty, and exceedingly interesting food.
