Cripsy Brussels Sprouts Tapas $11

Get crispy for your small plate tapas lunch with Crispy Brussels Sprouts at Continental Martini Bar in Old Town, Philadelphia. Nothing small about this dish with enough to share with several friends. Nice and crispy brussels sprouts in every bite. On their own, the brussels sprouts tasted very well seasoned with a nice crispy crunch to them, but with the white sauce, something was off. I couldn’t decide if it was a good or bad flavor, which could mean that it didn’t match the rest of the dish well. Still a good dish we enjoyed as long as we avoided the sauce.

Thai Chicken Lettuce Wraps Tapas $13

Wrap up your chicken for tapas lunch with Thai Chicken Lettuce Wraps from Continental Martini Bar in Old Town, Philadelphia. This was one of our favorite dishes from the road trip from DC to Philly. It makes your own bites kind of a meal with lettuce instead of bread or tortilla. Does that mean it’s a lot healthier? We would like to believe so, plus it tasted so much better. With nice and light lettuce wrap, you can enjoy all the Thai chicken and veggie mix flavors. It was a fun dish where you make your own wrap and add as much sauce as you want. The dish comes with a spicy sauce so that you can add a nice kick to it. However, you don’t really need the sauce since everything is seasoned and full of flavor and soft texture. The portion is huge compared to what you would expect at a tapas place, so this defiantly worth sharing with a few friends.

The thing about this dish is that it took 30 minutes apart from the dish before. When we asked the waitress when our last dish was coming, we got a bit of attitude and said that it would get to us when it gets done. Luckily the manager came out to us, and this dish was free. When it comes to bad service, always good when the restaurant realizes their mistake, apologizes, and makes up for it. Hence it has all the NOMs, and the review is not as grumpy as it could have been.
