QRE in Wan Chai is bursting with new eateries practically every single month. Finally I went to go try the Spanish Tapas joint called Quemo situated on the 5th floor of the building. I do love me some Spanish Tapas: check out my other tapalicious posts! Ole (post), Plaza Mayor (post), Tapagria (post), 22 Ships (post), Fofo by el Wily (post), and Mijas (post) to name a few.
Manchego $68. I love Manchego cheese. And, this was delicious. Wish it came with more pieces- but overall the texture and taste of the cheese was very good.
Iberico Ham Croquetas, from 5J and Joselito Jamon $78. These were decent. Nice and light, fluffy with potatoes, cheese and ham. Nothing too spectacular but pretty good.
Suckling Pig Bites, origin from Argon, Spain $228. The Suckling pig was good but SOOOOO not worth it. It was ONE PIECE of suckling pig….and it wasn’t big or anything… :/ Disappointed- for sure. The pig itself was good, nice and tender- but for $228….ridiculous.
Pulpo a la Gallega, Traditional Spanish Octopus $118. I loved this though. The octopus was crunchy and meaty. Quite good!
We also had the garlic clams which I forgot to photograph….and Huevos con Chorizo, fried eggs w/ sausage $118. This was spicy, nice and delicious! I really liked this…but again- quite pricey for a few chunks.
Ended it with a bloody mary! (Had some sangria, but forgot to photograph.) My fave. But we didn’t order as much and we were still hungry….one good thing about this building is that there’s a lot of food- so we went for some Korean food a few floors up!
