    Zambra Tapas Bar Burlingame Exterior Decor

    Zambra Tapas Bar is a new restaurant in Burlingame that specializes in traditional small plates (tapas) from Spain. They are located right off upscale Burlingame Avenue and right next to four other restaurants.

    Zambra Tapas Bar Burlingame Interior Decor

    Decor, Vibe – Stylish decor with neon color scheme and visually striking backlite bar. Sidewalk dining for warmer days. Flamenco oriented music was playing. The place was pretty empty during our early dinner.

    Picks:

    Zambra Tapas Bar Burlingame Fried Chick Peas

    Complimentary Deep Fried Chickpeas with a slight kick.

    Zambra Tapas Bar Burlingame Patatas Bravas

    Patatas Bravas ($6) Fried Potatoes, spicy tomato sauce, aioli were a nice mound of crunchy goodness. The two sauces added some variety to the potatoes.

    Zambra Tapas Bar Burlingame Skirt Steak

    Marinated Skirt Steak ($15) Saffron rice, seasonal vegetables and chimichuri was a nice steak cooked to medium rare. Tender and flavorful, the meat complimented the rice with green beans and mushrooms.

    Zambra Tapas Bar Burlingame Paella

    Paella Traditional ($16) Saffron rice, shrimp, clams, mussels, chorizo, chicken, peas was a pretty huge dish. The shrimp were really good but only two were present. The shellfish was good. The rice plentiful and full of robust flavor.

    OK:

    Zambra Tapas Bar Burlingame Cerviche

    Tres Ceviche ($11) Scallops, sea bass, shrimp, fennel, red onion were served in three separate glasses, along with a very good flatbread. The shrimp were good but the other two lacked flavor. We recently had a much better Cerviche at Limon.

    Pans:
    None

    Zambra Tapas Bar had decent service considering it was pretty empty. Prices are pretty typical for a tapas place, making this a good place if you are nearby. Zambra is good for a drink and a quick bite or two. If you are in San Francisco, we would stick to Bocadillos. Lalola in San Francisco is another similar Tapas place and Bocadillos is one of the top places inĀ  San Francisco.
    Moderate wine markup with Glasses of wine from $6, bottles from $24.
