During my stay in Spain, I went with some friends to have dinner at La Pepita, in Tarragona. La Pepita is a new restaurant located in the center of the city, near its older sister La Lola.
As it’s typical in Spain, the restaurant has a terrace but, since it’s already a bit cold outside, we decided to have dinner inside. Its interior is cozy and welcoming, combining wooden tables and chairs with elements like lovely wallpapers, vintage objects and flowers everywhere, even hanging from the ceiling. One of my favorite pieces is that they have recycled old theater armchairs into seats for the restaurant.
To start, we shared three tapas: hummus accompanied with bread (6.60€), braves al caliu (kind of spicy potatoes) (4.60€) and provolone with sobrasada (6.90€), also with some bread.
Then we ordered two “pepites”, their specialty. A “pepita” is a kind of thin and crunchy dough, similar to puff pastry. One “pepita” was with cheddar cheese, bacon and egg (7.20€), and the other one was with chicken, goat cheese and lamb’s lettuce (7.10€).
We finished this delicious dinner with two desserts (around 5€ each): an almond cake with cream, and a “pepita” that was double, one filled with white chocolate and the other with dark chocolate.
