    Good Food for such small portions

    My wife has decided to change careers and go back to school, so we have just start to discover University City (we moved to Center City 4 years ago). For her first week, I decided to take her to Distrito mostly because we are Chef Jose Garces fans (Amada and Tinto). I have to say the location décor is like blend of Continnetal and El Vez. It’s a fun place but is border line in the too much and exuberant decoration. We had the Tacos Carnitas, Queso Fundido, Ceviche de Camarones, Platanos con Crema, and the Chilango. Food quality and the all ingredients used are top notch, great taste. Overall: the food is great. Service is terrific and our waitress was sweet, no rush, and very professional. But the food portions are ridiculous small. I know the concept is similar to a tapas place and I am a big fan of Amada (despite their prices will make any Spaniard to cry) and I visit Barcelona twice a year for business so I eat a lot of tapas. I have to say their portions are by far smallest tapas or dishes I have seen in a while. Margaritas are good and even the dessert (we had the flan) was great. However, the flan was so small that we barely felt we had any. Just work in the portions especially you are located in University City. We paid around $85 and we were ok because I am used to Amada and Center City prices, but I am not sure students would be able to catch up if the portion is so small.
