{Pa amb tomàquet} Spanish Tomato Bread

Mockingbird Hill is a bar in DC and has unique flairs like pour-over coffee, punk music, and industrial decor. But, the owner, Derek Brown, is a self-proclaimed sherry advocate and has made Mockingbird Hill into a sherry and ham bar. The food is simple but well done and one of my favorites was his twists on the classic tapas bite, Pan Con Tomate.

{Haupia Pie} Hawaiian Chocolate Coconut Cream Pie
