Quick Review: Went all the way out to Naperville to Meson Sabika today for diner (in rush hour traffic on 294) for some Tapas and had a reasonable meal when we finally got there.
Long Review: After seeing Mason Sabika on Cheak Please we decided to go and check it out for ourselves and also to enjoy the springtime weather outside Spanish style in la sol (which was quickly receding below the horizon)
We arrived and ordered some cold tapas to start out. They were pretty good, the bacon wrapped prunes. They were good but after a few the sauce seemed too sweet and some water was needed to dilute the taste.
We moved onto the hot tapas and I ordered the lamb chops with cous cous. It was good not the best lamb I've had, the cous cous was good and was large grain which absorbed the sauce well.
We moved onto deserts and I had Tarimsu. It was alright for the price. All in all I had high expectations for Meson Sabika since I heard so many great things about but it didn't quite live to expectations. Maybe it was the phenomenal meal we had at Trattoria Trullo but I was expecting more. It's still a nice restaurant with good quality tapas for the suburbs.
Overall rating: 4 out of 5 stars.
