Boca Chica Bar Review
Finally Sangria in the North East!!
Boca Chica is a new tapas and cocktail bar nestled in Modbury. It’s a refreshing and overdue dining alternative now in the area, offering the wonderful atmosphere and traditional fresh flavours of Spain.
“Tapa” is an appetizer or snack in Spanish cuisine. Boca Chica, just like selected bars in Spain have evolved tapas into an entire, sophisticated cuisine – a complete dining experience though ordering several different dishes to share.
Formerly 1877 Pasta & Wine Bar, this gorgeous mosaic decorated, intimate venue sits 60 inside and 20 outside. General Manager Michael Sfera has travelled extensively and done his research with this exciting new venture… his main influences being from the Catalan region of Spain.
It’s perfect for small to medium functions or celebrations and a place you can chat with mates without yelling over the music. You can pop in for tapas and a drink or make a night of it with evening entertainment -flamenco and selected DJ’s. The outside courtyard is cozy and a fun place to sip your Aperol Spritz day or night.
Clearly already a favourite with locals, Boca Chica offers very tasty affordable food and great friendly service.
Pintxos (single serve), ensalada (salads), tapas (plates to share), cured meats and cheeses, paella, a la parrilla and postres (desserts and coffee).
The bar is open Tuesday to Thursday, from 4pm to late, with the kitchen cooking from 5 to 9.30pm. On Friday and Saturday, Boca Chica serves lunch from 12-3pm and dinner between 5 -9.30pm – the bar is open from 12pm until late.
Be quick to book in their “Mother’s Day Bottomless Brunch” deal going at the moment it looks amazing and sure to sweep mum off her feet.
If you love wine, very well priced sangria and tapas – and who doesn’t – then this should be on your list as next place to visit.
