Tonight was another course dinner, this one for the second course I am co-teaching in Tokyo.
Last week we went to a traditional Japanese restaurant for the first course dinner.

This week we went to La Boqueria which is a Spanish restaurant in the Yotsuya area of Tokyo. Of course that meant that the food would be served in a tapas fashion.
There were ten of us at the dinner. In the pictures you will usually see dishes that are designed to serve five people. They would place one dish at each end of the table.
This dish had a nice mix of greens, sliced vegetables and potato cubes.
Here we have a wooden paddle full of jamón serrano. Actually, I am not sure if it is jamón serrano, it may be jamón iberico. In any case, it is a dry-cured ham from Spain that is thinly sliced and then cooked in an oven.
The ham was very delicious.
I am actually not sure what type of meat was in this dish. I think that this was one of those times that it is better not to know. The middle of the pan was full of fried mushrooms.
The rice in this dish was really good as was the mystery meat. I am not a big fan of mushrooms, but I did try a few.
Now to finish packing for the flight home after the last day of class tomorrow.
Which of these dishes would you want to try?
