For dessert we were served a plate of Queso, the selection of cheeses impressive as was the thoughtful pairing of a sweet element, but the portion was minuscule and it truly left me wanting more. Perhaps if the later courses had filled me up this plate would have been the perfect digestif, but tonight, my ravenous appetite was not appeased.At twelve o'clock we have Torta de la Serna - a sheeps milk from Spain; served with quince. To the right is Cheverin - a goats milk from Belguim displaying a funky richness and a thick rind served with fig. Lastly the Manchego Curado is another sheeps milk from Spain; coagulated with thissel giving it a grassy earthy taste served with honeycomb.
Perhaps it was the omission of a bread course, or maybe the fact that I ate four tapas plates over the course of two hours that left my appetite at bay. I think this was an nontraditional experience at Tres Gatos, where the kitchen executing 40 something dishes at once was a burden.
Overall, Tres Gatos nailed bold flavor profiles even though certain elements were lacking in execution. I was constantly tasting something innovative. I'm still captivated by the thought of a pork stuffed olive, and that cilantro coulis was truly something special.
Mystery Meet has seen much success since its inception ten months ago and they continue to fulfill a goal of scoping out new and exciting restaurants in different areas of the city. A commendable job to the ladies of Just Add Cheese for gathering us all to experience the neighborhood comforts of Boston's newest - make that only tapas bar, book and music store.
