Forte European Tapas Bar & Bistro

Bulgarian tapas? Yes, at Nina Manchev’s funky, eccentric west-side restaurant, where mysterious elixirs such as the red-tinged Gypsy Juice sit behind the bar in huge glass jars.

Everyone will be eating ajarski khachapuri, cheese bread from the Republic of Georgia with an egg in the middle, and the mixed Bulgarian sausage plate.

But you can also have proper Spanish tapas such as shrimp sautéed in garlic. Whew!

Gyoza, Monta

This bustling noodle shop’s gyoza, or hand-made dumplings, take a little extra time, so when you order, the waitress will immediately shout over your shoulder to the kitchen that you’d like some. The gyoza are made in-house daily with pork and vegetables, then pan-fried for a nice crust on the outside. Make your own dipping sauce from the accoutrements in front of you: soy sauce, a little vinegar and a little chili oil or shichimi seven spice. $5, 5030 Spring Mountain Road, Suite 6, 367-4600.
