Sometimes cooking at home just isn’t an option, and what you need is a restaurant equipped to handle large parties with some degree of privacy. Lucky for you, we’ve got a list …
Earlier this month, we told you about Tinto’s new happy hour. Now, Jose Garces’s other Spanish restaurant in Philadelphia is getting a similar happy hour makeover.
Beginning today, Amada is offering a $5 tapas and drink specials from 5 to 7 p.m. on weekdays. Look for favorites like Piquillos Rellenos (crab-stuffed peppers), Patatas Bravas (spicy potatoes), and Croquetas de Jamon (ham croquettes) all to be on the happy hour menu.
In the drinks department, Amada will be offering $4 beers, $5 sangria, $6 wine and $8 cocktails.
Amada, Iron Chef Jose Garces’ Old City Spanish tapas bar and restaurant, is hosting its bi-annual Pig Out on Sunday, September 28th. There will be two seatings for the dinner; the first is at 3:30 p.m. and the second at 6:30 p.m.
The dinner itself will feature a three-course meal starring endless amounts of the Amada’s signature dish, Cochinillo Asado, or roasted whole suckling pig. The pig is carved table-side by a chef and is accompanied by side dishes including rosemary scented white beans, crispy roasted fingerling potatoes and for dessert, indulgent bacon and peanut butter macarons.
