Fall in love with Spain with a culinary trip to Mundaka in Carmel, CA

The first thing that pops in my mind when I think of Spain is tapas. In the sleepy town of Carmel, on San Carlos Street and just a few minutes walk from HofsasHouse, lies Mundaka. Named after a town in northern Spain, it’s a cozy restaurant with three dining rooms and a few tables to dine al fresco. The European dining experience is apparent with the cozy tables and bustling atmosphere. If you’re new to the tapas experience, don’t be nervous. Your server is there to answer all your questions and explain the dishes to you – just relax, enjoy, and eat at your own pace. Chef Brandon Miller’s creations have been dazzling foodies near and far since March 2009.  

Boquerones are marinated white anchovies with fried garlic. These were a touch too vinegary but the fillets were perfectly pristine in color and texture. I would get them again, but maybe with some sliced baguette. Thumbs up!
