Lunch in the City - Coqueta

Conqueta - Menu
Mijo and I went to Coqueta the other week for lunch. It was a beautiful day to be next to the water and Mijo has not been to Coqueta so I thought those are perfect excuses.

It has been two years since the last time I dined there. Still the same Coqueta goodness, same friendly service, same great atmosphere for dining. One of my favorites!

Mijo has not been to Coqueta before. I was there two years  ago with my friends Dinah and Karen for a Sunday brunch. Exactly two years later, Mijo and I went to the have lunch at Coqueta.

I don't exactly remember the setup of the dining area but I think nothing much changed. I like the high ceilings, urban chic design, lots of natural lighting.

Just like two years ago, Mijo and I decided to order Sangria. I guess when eating tapas, we prefer to pair with Sangria. Very tasty and refreshing.

I also had Pulpo a la Parilla two years ago. I did notice that the size of the pulpo or tentacles have gotten smaller. Though the same grilled seafood goodness.  And did I say so tender? I wonder how this food is prepared to make it juicy and less chewy?

No tapas lunch or dinner is complete without the Patatas Bravas.

For veggies, it was my first time, as well as Mijo's, to try their Verdura a la Catalania. If the salad is this good, I will eat more veggies. I'm just saying this veggie dishw was really good.

The service was the same friendly and professional service. Coqueta restaurant is on Embarcadero St. in San Franciso.
