The thing with tapas is they’re supposed to be small plates. Instead of one big Spanish dish like paella, tapas are a tour of the country through small bites concentrated with flavor.
Tapas at ¡MÃS! in the Hotel Andaluz are fantastically flavorful, but they’re massive portions. One item from the tapas menu would feed a person, probably with a few leftovers.
¡MÃS! is one of those newer upscale Albuquerque dining experiences, set in a lush corner space in Downtown Albuquerque and serving great tapas at New Mexico prices. And it’s attached to Andaluz, one of the nicest and most historic hotels in town.
Last week, I stopped in to try a variety of small plates (and walked out with a massive takeout box) and found four plates I loved at a price I was at peace with.
