East 8 New York Fusion Tapas + Bar

Looking for a light meal and somewhere to drink and chill with your love or friends? East 8 Tapas Bar is one of the top choices! Here is the blog post I promised on my experience at East 8. I was surprised that Mr C. made the effort to research before he came to this place because he ordered without me having to ponder over the menu. I love how my meals are taken care of every time I'm out with him.

 It was just one chilly night when Mr C decided to bring me there because I said I wasn't very hungry but he knows I'm fickle-minded with the food I eat. Although the price is on the high side at East 8, but their tapas never disappoint. The place was not difficult to find, there are indoor and outdoor areas. We took the outdoor area because it was really cold after the heavy rain. The lighting was not so good for photography but it was perfect ambience for the both of us.

Melting Pork Slider

Juicy braised pork cheek with melted gruy√®re cheese, grain mustard, and tomatoes. I call it the mini hamburger. Yes, the pork was melting inside my mouth when I had my first bite. The taste was heavenly! 

Ham & Cheese 

Buffalo mozzarella cheese, prosciutto ham topped with black truffle mayo.  Very delicious combination, it was a party in my mouth.

Portobello Fries
 Crispy truffle portobello mushroom fries with roasted garlic aioli. I asked for extra mayo because eating it alone but many can get a bit too "mushroomy. But I love it not because I'm a mushroom fan but because it's so special and crispy!

Soy Yuzu Beef
Soy yuzu infused torched sliced Argentine tenderloin. This was the highlight of the night. The beef literally melted inside my mouth. I'm not really good with descriptions but it did MELT. It wasn't too chewy like some other beef I ate at other places, you get so tired of trying to chew everything but it was just nice. While I'm typing this, I'm already thinking when is my next visit. THIS IS A MUST TRY. (Secretly inside me, I also loved the salad they placed beside the beef. HAHA. )

Molten Peanut Butter and Chocolate
Molten lava peanut butter & dark chocolate cake, French vanilla ice cream. At first, I was a little skeptical about Mr C. ordering this because I'm really not a fan of peanut butter. But it turns out to be very pleasant. When you cut the cake, you can literally see the peanut butter and melted chocolate flowing out of it. It was really rich. However, I would like it better if there wasn't too much of the peanut butter and chocolate but more of the cake itself so it won't be too overwhelming. 

Overall it was a really good experience, the people there are also really attentive to our needs. I would love to head back to try the other tapas on the menu although it was pricey. The next visit I would bring my friends along for drinks or even a simple date with Mr C.!
