Tapas, like books, cars, and husbands, are designed to be shared with those closest to you. Indulge in the best of Spanish-style sharing with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $35 worth of tapas at Zambra in Asheville's historic downtown.
Zambra combines the fun, social style of tapas dining with locally sourced farm-to-table ingredients. The multifaceted menu changes nightly, always delivering a smorgasbord of Spanish-inspired concoctions that make for easy sharing, entertaining eating, and excellent reenactments of scenes from Godzilla vs. Chorizo. Possible tapas options include mixed sautéed mushrooms wrapped in sweet-potato wontons and edamame ($7) and prosciutto-wrapped medjool dates with goat cheese and honey ($6.50). For diners who seek heartier eating, Zambra's paellas offer up delectable, layered flavors—meat-free diners can dive into the vegetarian paella with fresh vegetables and roasted garlic ($10 per person), and seafood fanatics can harvest the bounties of the deep with lobster, calamari, clams, shrimp, and mussels ($17 per person).
- The enticing list of tapas and an extensive Iberian wine list make this one of Asheville's favorite dining spots. With rustic Spanish decor and dark paneled wood, the restaurant has the ambience of a quaint spot on the Iberian coast. – Frommer's
- I have never before said that a restaurant was perfect. I will say that about Zambra. – Steven Winkler, Urbanspoon
