My friend Ahmar and I headed to Pica Pica the other night for girl talk and tapas. We tucked ourselves into one of the booths, and enjoyed some friendly service and saliva-inducing dishes.
You too can have this lovely experience. Whether you visit with a friend or in a big group, when it comes to tapas, it’s all about sharing. For two people I recommend getting four of the “Nuestras Tapas.” And don’t forget your veggies!
This is what we ate:
Ceviche – Tomate y aguacate
Tomato and avocado salad
Asparagus with Parmesan gratin
Pollo con queso de cabra alla pimienta
Julienned chicken in a white wine, lemon, and peppered goat cheese sauce
Shrimp in a cream sauce
Trosos de autun al sofrito
Cubed red tuna in an island spice sauce
Again, as I mentioned in my previous article about Pulled Pork Sandwiches at Dépanneur le Pick Up, I am certainly not a food critic. That being said, both Ahmar and I agreed that the ‘Gambas Bravas’ (shrimp in a cream sauce) was our fave choice.
1310 Boulevard De Maisonneuve East
Reservations recommended for Friday or Saturday evening

Insider Tip: Pica Pica has a pretty fab summer terrace (patio). But no matter what time of year you are there, keep your eyes peeled for the celebrity owner, celebrated house DJ Angel Moraes.
