Loquita - Santa Barbara

Loquita https://www.loquitasb.com/ is a well established Spanish tapas style restaurant in Santa Barbara which is covering a range of “classic” dishes. Most of these dishes were well executed and tasty (but we would love to see restaurants serving paella with socerrat which really adds much more flavor to the dish).

El Bulli, spherified castelveltrano olive

Jamon Tasting, serrano, iberico, iberico de chorizo

Pan con tomate

Croqueta de Cangrejo, dungeness crab, fennel seed, squid ink aioli, tarragon
Croqueta de Jamon, n’duja spice, calabrian chili aioli, cilantro

Based on recs on the SB thread we made a resy for Loquita last week, but had a conflict and cancelled. :slightly_frowning_face:
