The New Bulla Gastrobar in Doral, Miami
Let's make some noise about Bulla Gastrobar now open in Doral.
You all know about Coral Gable's favorite Gastrobar; popular for the happy hours and business lunches with hard to find ingredients such as the "merluza" (hake fish) flown directly from Spain tapas, refreshing white sangrias made with cava and an inviting atmosphere: Bulla Gastrobar now opens its doors with the same great quality in food and service at The Shops at Doral.

A well trained and knowledgeable staff is there to guide you throughout your experience whether you stop by for lunch; a cocktail by the bar or dinner; you will be sure to find the something interesting on the menu; from pintxos (tapas to share originally from Northern Spain) to the traditional "gambas al ajillo" or a selection of cold cuts including Jamon Iberico de Bellota "the finest ham in world", Tetilla (a semi soft milk cheese from Galicia with a distinctive mild buttery flavor) or Maxorata (a Canarian semi hard goat milk cheese).

Chef Miguel Rebolledo who is originally from Cantabria; is in charge of the culinary concept behind Bulla; the style denotes high influences of Northern Spanish cuisine and some particular dishes from Chef Miguel's hometown. We tasted his version of huevos rotos "Huevos Bulla" made with organic jumbo eggs, homemade chips, potato foam, truffle oil topped with serrano ham; a simple recipe with all the popping flavors.

Probably one of the best pan con tomate I ever had in Miami was the one at Bulla; is simple but unique crispy and thin cristal bread brushed with tomatoes, olive oil, garlic. Its consistence is almost ethereal while is absorbed on the fresh tomatoes and superior quality spanish olive oil still remains crispy due to the wheat flour and that secret recipe.
The Torrejas as an option for dessert were a pleasant surprise as well; on this version the bread soaked in milk, sugar and vanilla beans and lightly fried thereafter in olive oil was served with a warm sherry cream and a delicious turron ice cream on top.
Cocktails? Must-haves are La Madrilena with bourbon and manzanilla or the Lemongrass Collins with home-made lemongrass infusions; St-Germain and cucumber; all creations of talented mixologist Joel Mesa who created both beverage programs at Bulla Coral Gables and Doral and sister property Pisco y Nazca.
Bulla Gastrobar is definitely the place to be with a group of friends and share and sample tapas, cocktails; discover new flavors or bring back memories of a trip to Spain.
