“Hashigo” In Santa Monica

Took a bus to Santa Monica mainly for Happy Hour. Plus some window shopping. A lot less crowds. It’s hard to tell seasons in LA, but summer seems officially over.

Recently I watched Spanish Bars offering a variety of pincho (pintxo) on TV. Since then, I have been looking for a pincho place. Here we are! Starting 4pm, they have Happy Hour that looks a great deal.

Our drinks: Sangria Tinta $6, Cabotella Blonde Ale $6

6 pintxos for $6
It could be mix & match any 6. Some of them were more appealing but I wanted to try everything and there were 6 kinds on the menu anyway.

Huevo Relleno, Serrano Ham with Fresh Tomato, Manchego Y Membrillo, Gildas (anchovy), Morcilla Sausage, Sobrasada…To be honest nothing impressed us.

Ceviche De Atun Blanco $6, Albacore, Red Onion, Tomato, Potato Chips
Unfortunately, this is mediocre too. Then we got an idea we should do “Hashigo.” Hashigo means moving one bar to another in Japanese.

Damage was very little.

We walked a few blocks to get another Happy Hour.

His: La Flaca (Sour Margarita) $8, Mine: Dos Equis Amber $4

Tacos De Carnitas $8
Oh yeah! He was so happy to have this best taco again.

Tamales $8
Very tasty.

Chef’s choice of filling was carnitas as well. Wished it was something else, but still good and perfect with beer.

Tres Leches $10
Our dinner complete with dessert.

I really want to come back for dinner next time. Everything on dinner menu looks good.
