Unlike ATM codes, nail clippers, and the location of buried treasure, tapas are meant to be shared openly with friends. Divvy up a savory stash of Spanish shareables with today's Groupon: for $17, you get $35 worth of traditional Spanish cuisine and drinks at Tinatapa's in Channelside Bay Plaza.
Tinatapa's handles hankerings for authentic Spanish flavors with a menu comprised of small bites and full-sized dinners. Aim your eating apparatus toward bite-sized portions of spicy mango shrimp ($8.95), seared ahi tuna asada ($8.95), or goat cheese al forno, which allows baked goat cheese to pretend it's pasta with appetizing accouterments of tomato sauce and garlic toast ($6.95). For those who prefer less Lilliputian fare, full-sized portions are also available, from house specials such as roasted salmon with a sweet and zesty chutney ($14.95) to seared Filet Mignon steak with rioja wine sauce ($18.95). Save room to satisfy the sweet tooth with a fresh, house-made dessert such as tres leches cake, yellow pudding cake with banana and pineapple, brandished in a saccharine sword fight ($4.95).
Tinatapa's staves off diner dehydration with libations such as a full pitcher of Tina's Signature sangria ($24) or margarita superior, which derives its disdain for other drinks from its premium blend of Patron tequila, Grand Marnier, fresh lime, and a splash of orange juice ($33). Tinatapa's warm wood-accented dining room establishes an inviting atmosphere for interior eating, and its secluded patio is an ideal spot for al-fresco feasts and staring contests with supercilious butterflies.
