Txikito was the perfect choice for dinner as the ample selection of light bites makes for excellent grazing (the reasonably priced list of Spanish wines also helps you cool down).
There were a lot of great dishes to choose from - the roast suckling pig was one of the tastiest we've had in recent memory - but our favorite warm-weather dish on the menu had to be the pulpo. This healthy portion of octopus carpaccio is doused with lemon oil and sprinkled with marjoram. The thin slices are served with a small plate of bread - it's meant to be shared, and eaten leisurely. By the time you're finished, hopefully the sun will have set and those temperatures will have cooled down.
