Tapas and small plates @ Rico Libre, Digbeth


restaurants, Review

Recently I spent an evening at Rico Libre in Digbeth with some good friends. We laughed and gossiped, ate far too much and polished off a decent amount of wine for four women who all had work the next day. The coming together of friends over food is one of the reasons I enjoy tapas […]
