As I'm sure you have realized by now, I have a love for fashion and great food. Nothing can really stop me from dragging along a friend to try a new restaurant in town or a happy hour I have yet to try.
The latter is what brought me to Luna Red in San Luis Obispo, Calif. Though I've been to this lovely restaurant a few times, I had never tried their happy hour or their sangria that everyone raves about. So, I decided to give it a shot and see what all the talk was about.
For those who don't know, Luna Red is a restaurant and bar with a fantastic outdoor patio that you should choose to sit at if you get the chance. The restaurant serves tapas -- or small plates -- that are unique, fresh and absolutely mouth-watering.
I mean, where else can you find chorizo stuffed dates that are bacon wrapped, duck confit crepes or blue crab lasagna in San Luis Obispo? That's what I thought.
Luna Red's $5 happy hour is held Sunday through Wednesday from 3 pm - 6 pm and all day Thursday (seriously, all day). During happy hour, drink specials are $5 and select menu items are $5.
My friend and I ordered sangria, the smoked paprika hummus with flatbread, blue crab hushpuppies with an avocado remoulade and two arrachera skirt steak tacos. Though service was slightly slow, everything else was amazing. If I had to choose one dish that you must try during Luna Red's happy hour, it would be the blue crab hushpuppies. You won't be disappointed.
As for the sangria... it was the best. I completely understand why everyone raves about it. And for $5, how can you say no?
For a delicious (and pretty happy) happy hour, visit Luna Red at 1023 Chorro Street.
