Patagonian Toothfish (Tapas) - Redfern

Bought a coupon from Cudo -- $49 unlimited tapas under $16 for two.

The one thing I dislike about getting coupons is that as soon as you arrive at the venue, all of these unwritten terms and conditions will miraculously pop up..

We were told that the chicken skewers can only be ordered once  -- wasn't on my coupon
We only had 1 hour to order -- wasn't on my coupon.

We ordered 4 tapas to start off, the food came out relatively slow... and since we now had a 1hr limit placed on our heads we decided to binge eat. We ordered 1 of everything we can order from the menu.....

Yep.


Gambas al Ajo 
Pan fried garlic prawns
$13



Calamares Fritos
Salt & pepper squid served with aioli
$12.50

And garlic prawns

Papas Fritas

Calamares Fritos

We also had Champinones al Ajillio -Mushrooms sautéed in garlic, olive oil, chili and cream - $12 which I forgot to take photos of.

Overall I thought the food was pretty good, everything was tender and full of flavour. Our bellies were bursting as we left the restaurant. I slipped into a gradual food coma and had nightmare that night. I was also extremely thirsty after the meal, my tongue tasted like sand-paper. The usual sign of MSG. Service was top notch, very friendly. However, our tapas did take a while to come out while the table of dudes next to use had their tapas shooting out of the kitchen.

I enjoyed the outdoor alfresco setting, however tables on the patio were way too small, they had a little side stand to place all their tapas, water etc. One dude accidentally knocked his glass off the table because it was so cluttered!

I thought this was a great Cudo deal.

Lets see how much it would've cost us if we paid for the full bill...

2 x garlic prawns = $26
2 x salt and pepper squid = $25
1 x salsa prawns = $13.50
1x potatos = $8
1x croquettes = $12
1x squid = $12.50
1x bread = $2
1x chorizo= $10
1xchicken skewers = $14
1x meatballs = $12
1x mushroom = $12


Total: $  147          $ 73.50 per person.
