Via Mar

This small Spanish restaurant situated at a corner in SAM is cozy and have quite a lot of selection for the tapas. The layout of the restaurant is pretty simple , nothing fanciful but comfortable.

The outdoor seating

Croquette 2-types

2 types of croquette, the crusted crab cakes and seafood croquette. Each type comes in 3 pieces. They probably look small on the big white rectangular plate but I would say that the actual size is ok. Considering that there are 6 in total and they are deep fried, you wouldn't want to have them in giantic portion.

Price: $12

Crusted crab cake

The crab meat is pretty generous and the taste of crab is strong.

Seafood croquette

I will personally prefer this than the crab cakes. The seafood croquette is creamy in it and the taste is better than the crab cake.

Bacalao baked in Tomato, Potatoes and Cheese

This is basically cod fish cooked with potatoes in tomato sauce and cheese. There are big chunks of cod fish hidden underneath and in between the potatoes. It is a great dish! The sauce is good and the cheese doesn't make this dish too rich.

Price: $12

Valencia Seafood Paella (2 person)

We ordered the 2 person portion but it is so much that it seems like it can feed 4 hungry people! Look at the generous serving of seafood (mussels, prawns, clams, fish and hard boil eggs) on top of the paella. Just by eating all the seafood makes me half full. Totally worth the price and basically we have over ordered because we didn't expect the paella to come in such a huge portion. The paella is properly cooked, not too dry, a little moist. Just the way I like it.

Price: $35

Dessert tasting portion (For 2 person)

I didn't enjoy the dessert tasting portion and have regretted ordering that. Basically there are 6 kind of dessert and each comes in 2 portion. The cakes are too dry, this crepe like this is bland and the churros were too hard.

Price: $18
