Tapas at Just-a-Restaurant

Went here to celebrate a friends birthday and it was nice that they arranged a big table.
It was a Saturday so there was free Sangria even if you just order one tapas dish.

We started with tapas followed by paella and roast suckling pig.
Tomato, onion and white anchovies on toast:

The highlight of the toast was the white achovies because they were really soaked in vinegar.
Serrano ham, tomato on toast:

Spanish cold cuts platter:
(Serrano ham, chorizo, olive and Manchego cheese).

My favourites had to be the cheese and olives.
Chili garlic prawns:

Springy prawns with aromatic crispy garlic.
Chorizo with green apple:

I don't normally like chorizo but this was worth trying because they are thin slices with pickled apple slices that balance the salty chorizo nicely.
Pacific manila clams with white wine cream sauce:

I was expecting a creamy sauce but it had a strong wine taste with lots of asparagus.
The clams were bursting with white wine sauce so it was really tasty.
Spanish octopus in garlic olive oil:

The octopus was springy with lovely olive oil and garlic flavouring.
Baked New Zealand oysters with onion and bacon:

didn't try this.
Grilled king prawn seafood paella:

As a carbs lover, the rice was tasty because it has absorbed all the seafood flavours with a hint of tomato.
Pan fried Chilean seabass:

The fish was silky and chunky and just tasted like cod.
Roast suckling pig:

The skin was crispy and the meat beneath it was tender.
Jar banoffee pie:

The banoffee was loaded with banana infused cream which tasted natrual.
