I had my first experience with tapas tonight at the Jaleo in DC.

These are the tapas I tried:

Espinacas a la Catalana: Sautéed spinach, pine nuts, raisins and apples
Patatas bravas: Sliced, fried potatoes topped with a spicy tomato sauce and alioli
Sandía con tomates, caña de cabra y pistachos: Watermelon with tomatoes, goat cheese and pistachios
Tomatitos rellenos de cangrejo: Baby tomatoes stuffed with jumbo lump crabmeat
Setas al ajillo: Organic Tuscarora Farm mushrooms sautéed with garlic and herbs
Dátiles con tocino ‘como hace todo el mundo: Fried dates wrapped in bacon
Tortilla de patatas: Spanish omelet with potatoes and onions
