Kingston Eats: Tango

It’s a pretty nice upscale tapas bar.  It’s very dark inside even during a bright sunny day.  I know people usually come here for tapas and drinks.  I’m not too impressed with the tapas. Though there were a few standout items, most of the tapas were forgettable – if well prepared.   Sometimes you might meet a good daily special.  The menu itself has very limited choices (exclude the tapas menu).  If you’re coming here for a meal (not just for those tapas) then I would suggest coming here for the lunch menu, the dinner menu is totally overpriced.

℘ Tango is a member of “Local Food Local Chef”, a Kingston initiative to promote the area as a destination of culinary tourism

Was told that the pasta was made in house but I felt I had better handmade pasta elsewhere.  It’s a pretty good dish.
