Few things beat sharing small plates with friends in the afternoon sun:
Cascal is a good place to get your tapas fix in downtown Mountain View, CA. Spanish + Latin American-inflected small plates, with the occasional Asian tangent. I don’t find the menu to be full of 100% homeruns, but I now have a very nice go-to set of the standout dishes.
This is a nice dinner for two: sparkling/red sangria, grilled asparagus and citrus salad, ahi tuna tartare, pork belly, and sizzling shrimp.
