It's been years since I last had tapas at Delicado Foods and I remember loving the food, so I was really looking forward to a great evening.
We were given a long table outside to accommodate our big group. It was a lovely night so being outside was lovely. The only complaint I had was that the seats were squished too closely together and so we couldn't easily get in and out of our seats.
Service was great and food was enjoyable. There's a wide selection of tapas on the menu, not just the usual gambas, patatas bravas and garlic mushrooms that you typically find in some of the Spanish places in the city.
I should also mention that Delicado Foods has a deli indoors and a wonderful bottle shop next door.

The waiter recommended this platter of smoked chorizo and jamon. I've never had smoked chorizo before and I'm glad we ordered this. I personally am a huge fan of smoking so this was a treat.
|We then ordered the regular grilled chorizo with chimmichurri.|
Crispy Squid with aioli ($22) was next. The squid was cooked well and slightly crispy.
I was really happy to see they still had the zucchini flowers on the menu so of course I had to order this for the table. Zucchini Flower, queso di Cabra, butternut pumpkin, romesco sauce $7 per piece. Yum!
We also ordered a few of the mains to share. First up was the Confit Pork Belly, spicy pork/pistachio empanadas, apricot compote, braised radicchio, almond jus ($29). It was a pleasant dish but wasn't a standout.
For the other main, we ordered Black Angus Sirloin (300gm) Rangers Valley (medium-rare only) ($35). The beef was perfectly cooked and very tender. I thought it was delicious.
