Forte European Tapas Bar and Bistro

In the past few years there have been a rising popularity of tapas style restaurants in Las Vegas.  Forte European Tapas Bar & Bistro has got to be one of the top tapas places in town!  Just upon entering I saw vibrant European art all over the bistro and the music selection was great - I really wanted to dance, but of course had to eat!  Forte serves a variety of tapas/comfort foods from regions all throughout Europe like Russia, Spain, and Bulgaria.

A cocktail to start off the night.  To see what they make, click here


Plov (Uzbeki style vegetarian pilaf)- the spices used to make this plov was pleasing to my palate!  Eating any type of rice is my weakness:


Adjarski Khachapurri- this is a traditional Georgian boat-shaped bread filled with Georgian style pickled cheeses and a cracked egg.  Forget pizza, I could eat this all day:


Their clay pot meal cooked the Thracian way:


Bulgarian Mixed Grill- with kiufte, kebabche, and loukaniko.  We actually didn't order this haha, I took a photo before we sent it back.  These three sausages look like meat heaven:


Forte Fries with Garlic and Herbs- a lovely presentation of fries:


Vareniki- a hand-made dumpling filled with potatoes and fried onions with a side of sour cream.  If you don't know much about Russian cuisine, just at least know they eat everything with sour cream!:


I'm glad there were four of us, we got to sample each other's desserts.  This first treat is the Tolumba- a fried sweet dough in honey syrup:


Biscuit Cake- a cake layered dessert with honey biscuits, mascarpone, chocolate, Lavazza espresso, a bit of spiced rum, topped with walnuts and extra chocolate:


Baklava- another layered pastry made of sweet filo dough with walnuts and lemon honey syrup:


If you're itching to try out various European foods, I highly recommend checking out Forte!
