  1. Frozen apple foam?! That sounds pretty good. We love tapas. It is usually how I cook for us on the weekends too – that way we get some of everything. 🙂

  5. GREAT post! Makes me want to go back!!!!

  6. I only been to one tapa restaurant and that was Amada in Old City. I went there for lunch and it was really good, however, I did not have anything else to compare . If you want to take my advice you should check it out. I hope this post finds you well.


  7. The scallop looks amazing in that picture. I want visit Philly so bad just because of all the fabulous restaurants I see on your blog hahaha!

  8. YUM. You are definitely making me want to visit my aunt in Philly! How did you think this compared to Tinto?

    • Come visit! We can hang out!!!

      Tinto definitely had a fancier atmosphere. The food was also more expensive and heavy. I liked Bar Ferdinand more because the food tasted very fresh and light, but super flavorful. I would go back to both though.

  9. That place looks amazing! Tapas and food to share are so much more fun.

    those churro’s look amazing!

  11. It sounds like you’re getting really comfortable in Phili. Isn’t running the best way to get to know a new city… and of course eating out. 😉
    This place looks pretty incredible. I now NEED to check out Toro – Boston’s best tapas place.

  12. I think this is my first comment, but I’ve always loved reading your blog because I love finding new restaurants to go to in Philadelphia. This looks great – I’ve never explored NoLibs either, but I’ve heard it’s so much fun there. They used to have a restaurant that only served mac+cheese… it would have been perfect for me 🙂

  13. wow – this place looks incredible! I am slowly compiling a list of places to try out when I move to Philly this summer – this is definitely are the top of the list! thanks =)

  14. I love tapas places- it’s the perfect place for me since appetizers and sharing are my two favorite things!

    P.S. the pretzel rods are super drool-worthy!

  15. those pretzels rods look phenom!

  16. These are terrific photos- mouthwatering, really! You’ve made me want to go to Boston’s answer to Bar Ferdinand- Bar Lola! I’m a huge tapas fan. It looks like you had SO much fun! I’ll definitely put Bar Ferdinand on my list of places to go when I get to Philly!

    Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to call for my reservation 😉

  17. LOVE Tinto…though, the last time I went was during restaurant week, which is always tough. Haven’t been to Bar Ferdinand yet, though…we’re never in Northern Liberties. I’m a fan of Snackbar, just off Rittenhouse — I don’t know that I’d call it tapas, since the plates are a little bigger and they also have some “entrees,” like a burger, but it’s generally the same concept — order plenty of plates to share.

  18. Holy yum! Everything looks delish!
    Great job on the pretzel rods- they look perfect!

  19. Everything looked amazing!! Love the pretzel rod action!
