Gambas al Pil-Pil @ Vega Tapas Cafe
Pil-pil is a combination of hot paprika, garlic, and olive oil that hails from Portugal. (It’s also known as “piri-piri.”) It’s very good with shrimp, creating a dish that’s vaguely reminiscent of New Orleans barbecue shrimp. This has been one of the most popular small plates at Vega, which specializes both in tapas and Mediterranean eats like this.
