About this business
From Our Editors
When local favorites Sangria Tapas Bar and Maemi Peruvian Cuisine merged recently, a new dining hotspot was born: Jalea. The former eateries' Spanish and Peruvian influences can be seen all over Jalea's new menu, which spotlights an eclectic mix of hot and cold tapas such as homemade Spanish meatballs, cilantro-spiced leg of lamb, and Peruvian mashed potatoes drizzled with aioli. Though tapas are the main attraction here, diners aren't required to share—no matter what their kindergarten teachers taught them. Instead, they can opt for specialty entrees, including the sirloin steak topped with fried egg and plantains or the signature jalea, a mix of breaded seafood, yucca, and corn.
