Casa Don Carlos Tapas, Brighton

On another dreary day in Brighton, my boyfriend and I decided it was time to treat ourselves to a meal out. He had literally visited this restaurant about four days prior to our visit, and he loved it so much that he brought me back.

We meandered the empty lanes of Brighton, huddling together in the cold, until we finally reached the tiny little restaurant.

Casa Don Carlos is another restaurant in Brighton that I've walked past a million times but I've never thought to stop and go in there. 

Inside the decor is cosy and simple, with red checkered clothes and big menus with Spanish headers.

After we had chosen our dishes (we opted for two each), they offered us some bread which we accepted. Warm, crusty bread with perhaps the best garlic aioli I've ever tasted in my life. I would have happily had just the bread.

The food here comes out when it's ready, so you know it hasn't been sitting in the kitchen, and you can tell by how fresh it all is. The first dish to arrive was deep fried squid.

The next two dishes arrived in the biggest tapas bowls I've ever seen. Each of these is probably a meal in itself for somebody like me.

I went straight for the patatas bravas, my favourite tapas dish. Crispy potatoes smothered in a rich, spicy tomato sauce and soured cream. They were truly the best I've ever had.

And of course I had a spoonful of mushrooms with chorizo; simple, yet amazing.

But the real star of the show was the paella.

It had the most amazing flavour and was adorned with fresh mussles, prawns and chicken.

I have to say that Casa Don Carlos have some of the best tapas I've ever had in my life. And that's saying something. If you're ever in Brighton and fancy a spot of lunch, be sure to check them out. Our bill only came to around £23 which I think is extremely reasonable for the amount of food you are given. My only regret is that we couldn't finish all of the dishes, no matter how delicious they were. 

I'm so hungry after writing this. The things I do for blogging.
