During EatLafayette, Pamplona Tapas Bar is offering a buy two, get one free special from its Traditional Tapas menu. Chef de Cuisine David Harrower has added four new tapas items to the Traditional Tapas menu including the INDEats Dish of the Month, Embutidos y Pimientos. This dish features three handmade pork sausage links topped with braised peppers. It’s heavy on flavor, but the light-tasting braised sauce makes it perfect for summer. Pair with a cool cocktail, like the Green Vespa, and enjoy on the patio for a deliciously Downtown experience.
