When you’re out enjoying all the fun, exciting, beach and other activities the Emerald Coast has to offer, you’re bound to hear your stomach rumble. There are plenty of delicious dining options along 30A, but if you’re looking for a small meal to keep you going, or some decadent chocolate to satisfy your sweet tooth, La Crema Tapas & Chocolate has just what you need!
There are a variety of choices, many gluten-free and vegetarian. Share the La Crema Cheese Tasting – a selection of three artisanal cheeses, grilled farm bread, local honey, Valencia almonds, and seasonal fruit, or choose the daily hummus and pita. The patatas bravas feature crispy potatoes and charred scallion aioli with roasted chili-tomato sauce or go for simple cheese fondue – a blend of Manchego, cheddar, and jack cheese served with house-toasted croutons.
There is plenty to choose from, including seafood and selections for the land lovers. Fish tacos join scallops, crab cakes, and shrimp, as well as blue crab rangoons – four crispy wantons filled with a mix of blue crab, cream cheese, scallion, red and poblano peppers, and drizzled with sweet chili sauce. Non-seafood choices include chicken, steak tostadas and empanadas, and albondigas – four pork and beef braised meatballs, guajillo cream, onion jam, and cotija cheese.
All of the paella dishes are gluten-free! Enjoy seafood including lobster tail, shrimp, scallops, mussels, red onion, piquillo peppers, and chorizo with saffron rice. Try the veggie option filled with carrots, mushrooms, red onion, celery, tomato, piquillo peppers, and arugula with saffron rice. For some extra protein, the country dish features chicken, serrano ham, red onion, piquillo peppers, and chorizo with saffron rice.
Para la Mesa
The local catch is the inspiration for the chef’s daily creation. Enjoy fresh, local seafood straight from the Gulf, or a lobster mac bursting with lobster meat, a pepper jack and cheddar blend, elbows, and Panko. Try the lamb asada, delicious grilled lamb rib chops with guajillo-cauliflower puree, red chimichurri, and caramelized shallots.
We didn’t leave the kids out. Guests eight and under can choose from grilled cheese, chicken fingers, peanut butter and jelly, or the kids’ pasta for something more to their liking.
The chocolate fondue comes in milk or dark chocolate with apples, bananas, strawberries, pound cake, and marshmallows for dipping. The hot chocolate molten cake is a can’t miss – a mug of molten dark fudge cake that’s crisp on top and hot lava chocolate beneath. Satisfy your sweet tooth with classic chocolate chip cookies, or layers of vanilla ice cream, chocolate mousse, and whipped cream. Sip your chocolate when you choose the luscious and thick Spanish delicacy and add an infusion of mocha, peppermint, hot chili, or hazelnut for an extra zing.
Pair your treats with a variety of red, white, bubbly, and rose wines, or even beers including 30A Blonde and other craft beers. There is a myriad of cocktails, as well as non-alcoholic beverages like coffees, teas, Coke products, and water at the La Crema in Rosemary Beach.
