What pairs well with a great conversation? Great food, that’s fresh to order, and imported from Spain. Located in Winter Park, FL is an amazing restaurant called Bulla Gastrobar.
The chef described every dish to our table, and I found myself eating food and talking about it at the same time. That’s when you know you’re at a table full of foodies!
The Lemongrass Collins has easily become one of my favorite drinks of all time. It’s the right amount of refreshing, and as you can tell the bartender does not skip out on the rosemary.
I also ordered the Proper Gin & Tonic. The star anise was a surprising touch!
Ingredients are Wint & Lila gin, lemon peel, lime wheel, star anise, Fever Tree tonic water.
First up was a meat and cheese plate. My favorite was the Manchego cheese and the fresh olives coming in every shape and size. You can just taste how fresh each ingredient is.
Cured Meat & Cheese Plate:
‘Fermin’ Serrano ham, aged 15 months
Chorizo de Cantimpalo
