Patria is a swanky restaurant that serves up traditional Spanish cuisine. My friend and I were in the mood for tapas, and we certainly came to the right place! Patria is located right downtown at King and Spadina. From start to finish everything about this place was amazing. The ambiance was lovely with low lighting and an open kitchen view. Our server was very attentive and friendly. And the food was so flavourful. Here's what we had:
Blood Orange Cocktail and White Wine Sangria
Bocadillo de Higado graso de pato (foie gras on bun with pedro ximenez reduction and quince)
Charcuterie (Assortment of prosciutto, salami, capicola) 
Croquetas de jamon (traditional ham croquettes)
Datiles con tocino iberico (Dates and iberico bacon + manchego cheese and guindillas) 
Glass of white wine
Fideos con almejas y chorizo (Fideo pasta and clams + chorizo and aioli)
Churros con dulce de leche (Spanish donuts with cinnamon + and dulce de leche)
Mousse de dulce de leche chocolatey crema fresca (Dulce de leche mousse + creme fresh + chocolate)

This restaurant was close to perfection for me. Every dish was packed with so much flavour. My favourites of the night were the stuffed dates and foie gras bites. I enjoy tapas style meals because it's perfect for ordering a variety of small plates and sharing. If you haven't been to Patria, I highly recommend giving it a try.

Happy Eating! Patria on Urbanspoon
