Restaurant Roundup: Tapas at Toro
May 16, 2022 • Restaurants
Dining out doesn’t always have to be about a big sit down dinner. Sometimes just an interesting cocktail with some well prepared snacks is all I want, and that’s something Spanish restaurants generally do pretty well. Toro is run by Executive Chef Oscar Padilla who has been part of the Richard Sandoval restaurant empire for over a decade. While you might be familiar with the Sandoval restaurants here in the US, it wasn’t until I sat down to write this post that I remembered I dined right next door to his restaurant Toro in Belgrade a couple years ago. We ate at Ambar and didn’t have time to try Toro, so I was happy to find a location opened up right here in Denver.We only had room for a few bites but happily, from the cocktails to the guacamole, and from the ceviche to the pork belly tacos with pineapple salsa, everything was outstanding. Guess we’ll need to return for an actual full dinner!
