The last restaurant visited for Taste MTL. Tapeo has been on my must-visit list for a very long time. This place tends to go over my budget limit. But since it is part of the event, I can finally sample their menu at an affordable price. The fixed menu consisted of 6 tapas and 1 dessert shared for two people. Each tapas is generously portioned and has a nice profile of flavours. Every dish tasted very good, hard to pick our favourites.
The grilled octopus was tender meld well together with the pesto romesco sauce. The scallop was perfectly cooked served with a nice fruity marmalade sauce. The vine tomatoes and goat cheese is a nice combination with a basilic oil which we literately soaked the bread in it - so addictive. The braised short ribs, braised for at least four hours, were fork-tender, fall-off the bone and flavourful. Finally, the churros dipped in chocolate - heavenly, excellent dessert to finish off the meal.
I can say that this is now my favourite tapas place in Montreal, so worth your money.
