Mompou Tapas bar And Restaurant Newark, Guide & Review
If you are a Spanish cuisine lover and you’re nearby, pop into Mompou Tapas bar. They have tried experimenting with traditional Spanish food and cocktails and have a tasty wine list to accompany the food. They take great pride in the menu they have developed for those who come in, which steals the show. Their fantastic service combined with this makes for an incredible experience. Open here since 2005, Mompou has made small plate-style tapas a work of art.
The food is prepared with the freshest ingredients from the local farmers. Everyone here would recommend that you try their tapas for sure. ‘Mejillones en salsa de azafrán,’ or ‘Pulpo a la feria’ are a big hit amongst the customers. The first one is a steam mussels dish cooked in saffron-infused white wine sauce. Other tapas dishes include shrimp, octopus, calamari, and crab if you want to focus on seafood tapas. They also have chicken, bacon, and steak-style tapas. They also offer mains like paella and steak if you want to try that after the tapas. Their coconut flan and tres leches are a hit.
Their drinks menu has beer on draft and bottles, cocktails, gin, and sangria. Their house-made sangria and extraordinary wine selections from Spain and Portugal attract many customers. Their cocktails also have quirky names like ‘Bi-curious,’ ‘Pink Penis,’ ‘Peeping Tom,’ and ‘Red hot pick-up’. Order one of these to go with your food.
The place is cozy and family-friendly, with tables all around the room. Some people sit at the bar while others dance to the music. It is a vibe, for sure
