The Black Trumpet Bistro
Gourmet Gem in a Strip Mall
My friends in Huntington Beach brought me to this gem of a tapas restaurant called the Black Trumpet. The outside decor is unassuming in this strip mall in Huntington. However, when you walk in - the jazz vibe, the aromas from the open kitchen, and the full restaurant of locals - you can tell this is going to be an evening of treats. Dino, the owner, welcomes you at the door, and brings you to a waiting area to enjoy their sweet sangria full of fruit. Sit at the chef's table- and you can see the cooks work with a fury and their magic behind the culinary delights. It is hard to choose from the multiple tapas - mediterranean with an italian twist. Above is the veal sliders with feta, tabouleh, and satiki yogurt....melts in your mouth. Other great choices are the chicken skewers, fig pizza, brussel sprouts, and truffle fries. Save room for desert!
