I love this joint! Every time we go, it gets better & better. (So often, this is not the case. How refreshing! )
Tonight, we had Wicked GOOD Shrimp (among a few other things!) It was spiced to perfection! I wanted to keep soaking up the sauce with more bread once the shrimp was gone, but I just didn’t get drunk enough to beg our server for more bread. And I can’t go without getting the Cabrales Cigars… a “Spanish blue cheese & leek fondue, rolled into phyllo cigars then pan seared; accented with sherry-raisin sauce.” There’s probably a negligible amount of crack mixed in with the sherry-raisin sauce. I’m just sayin.
Usually, I’m not a big carnivorous diner. However, due to the urging of my Sister’s boyfriend, I tried the Smoked St. Louis Ribs. WOW! They’re definitely smoked, and served with a house-made (<– yes!) guava barbecue sauce. The flavor was unlike any barbecue I’ve had. It was distinctively barbecue, but with a “ska band” vibe. Super tasty!
The key element to enjoying a night out is SERVICE. (Well, it’s MY key element!) Our server was knowledgeable, thorough, and all-in-all awesome. But several peeps stopped by to make sure we were happy. Sanctuaria is FILLED with awesome servers, and it’s obviously a team. Impeccable – and makes for a great experience.
Good company. Good food. Good night 🙂
