Tasty Takes – Marinated Octopus from PB’s “Costa Brava” restaurant

By  | 

Bitter EndPulpo a la vinagreta, or marinated octopus from Costa Brava in PB.

Vinegar, sweet peppers, parsley, extra virgin olive oil, and tender perfectly cooked octopus. This is one of many tapas at Costa Brava that are featured on the daily happy hour menu, from 5 – 7, along with pitchers of sangria.

If you’ve ever wanted to go to Spain, but are a few thousand dollars short, Costa Brava is the closest thing. Located on Garnet Avenue, enshrouded in foliage, as soon as you enter the covered patio, you feel like you’ve been transported to Spain.

The comfortable patio, the masculine bar, the skylights in the dining room, and the accent of the Spanish waiters all make you wonder how you’re still in Pacific Beach. And then with the first sip of sangria, the first bite of pulpo a la vinagreta, or patatas a la brava, or jamon Serrano, you start to wonder if you really are in Spain.

But then, you snap back to reality when you see the table next to you, they’re all decked out in flip flops and T-shirts that say “Pacific Beach,” then you realize, you’re still in San Diego.
