restaurant opening

over the weekend, i went to a tapas restaurant that just opened up last week! 
racion is a beautiful tapas style restaurant located in pasadena
& i am glad to have gotten the chance to check it out before others-

 although i didn't get to take out my camera while waiting, the restaurant actually has amazing art pieces they acquired from downtown artwalk!  
i will definitely have to make updates to this post when i go back next time ;)
...yes, to be honest, i wanted to wait until after i checked out the restaurant again, but wanted to share the photos as these are the first food photos i took using my new nikon!

so hope you enjoy these photos & drool with me-

-marinated mussels, shrimp & calamari with tart peppers
-cured duck, jamon, liver & tangerine terrine 
-lamb & pork meatballs, tomato glaze
croquetta de pollo
-chicken & ham croquettes, membrillo honey, goat cheese mousse
calamares rellenos
-duck sausage stuffed squid, brava sauce 
venduras asadas
-roasted seasonal vegetables, romesco
paella deconstruida
-crispy prawns, lobster rice, bouillabaisse

-spanish pasta, mussels, quail egg
coliflor ahumado
-stew of new potatoes, smoked cauliflower steak, almonds

in addition to these delicious looking dishes, there was a squab dish i didn't get a photo of (of...to be honest, i didn't want a picture of a pigeon, because of my ornithophobia;;)
& their bread was a big hit!
i always give the restaurant a big thumbs up for having good bread + butter ;)
