Ocho

Tucked away on a Ballard corner is a little place called, Ocho.  With just a few tables and several seats along the bar it’s not surprising the place is often packed, especially once you’ve tasted the food. 
 
 
 
 
 
Ocho is a tapas bar.  Creating authentic small Spanish bites and serving them up with precision seems to be their specialty.  Three of us popped in a couple months ago, grabbed seats at the counter and proceeded to make a good dent in the menu, which is listed on a chalkboard at one of the room. 
 
 
 
 
Although the plates are small, as they should be, most lend themselves to sharing so we were all able to try many little bites.  I don’t know if I can say which were my favorite – all were tasty and offered flavor harmony for the tastebuds.  The fun thing about a tapas bar is that you don’t have to figure out the one thing you want for the evening  We tried meat, seafood and vegetable options and enjoyed them all.  Grazing your way through the menu is the preferred method of eating. 
 
 
 
 
 
Next time you are in Ballard give Ocho a try.  It’s worth making a special trip to get there but be warned that the seats do fill and once they do people my linger for some time.
