Chef Luis Javier Cano shows off a grilled meat 'plank.'

El Carajo International Tapas & Wines 


Located inside a Citgo station, El Carajo ("crow's nest") was carved out of a wine shop where you can buy retail from the 2,000-bottle inventory and have wine with your meal for a $10 corkage fee. This is a good place to come with a group of friends and share a few rounds of tapas at one of the sturdy wood tables set in a faux courtyard with Moorish-fortress look. Choose from beef carpaccio with Manchego, grilled octopus with seafood, potato tortilla, marinated olives, chorizo sausage in cider and cheese plates with quince paste. The house specials are paella of the day and planks-wooden boards heaped with grilled meats, sausages, peppers and potatoes or seafood. Save room for sinful desserts including soursop flan with fruit.
