San Chez–Grand Rapids, Michigan

If you’ve never heard of tapas, once you leave San Chez, you’ll be a lifelong fan. This restaurant is great for taking out-of-town guests and special occasions. The wide spread and diversity of dishes found in this Spanish cuisine will keep you coming back just so you can try everything. The dishes are slightly changed with the seasons.

Unless you have a big appetite, it’s best to go with friends. You order a few small plates, your friends order a few small plates, and you have a meal on appetizer-sized dishes.

I ordered the salmon con hierbas (salmon with herbs), croquettas de cangrejo y bacalo (crab cakes), and esparragos en salsa romesco (asparagus), banderilla de cordero (lamb tenderloin). Everyone in my party ordered 3 dishes. You’ll get a wide array of foods in this Spanish restaurant; think of it as fun education.

This restaurant is even friendly for everyone with their allergy menus.

If you’re there when plantains are in season, order them. They’re just as good as dessert.

The dessert is mouth-wateringly delectable especially the tres leches. So bring a big stomach and the patience slowly digest this big meal. This restaurant deserves the highly coveted five sporks.
