Nestled in the heart of Ballston, SER offers more than just food—it's an authentic Spanish experience. As soon as you step inside, the warm, inviting ambiance reminds you of Spain's cozy eateries. With its philosophy of being Simple, Easy, and Real, SER truly lives up to its reputation.
We kicked off our gastronomic journey with the tantalizing 'Pulpo a la Gallega'—perfectly seasoned octopus that melted in our mouths. The 'Papas Bravas,' crispy potatoes with spicy tomato sauce, set the stage for the evening's highlight: the iconic 'Paella.' Bursting with flavors of the sea and fragrant rice, it's a dish that encapsulates coastal Spain. Rounding off our meal was the 'Dorada a la Sal,' an ode to Spain's love for seafood.
Beyond the delightful dishes, SER's charm lies in its story. Recognized by top magazines like the Washingtonian and Arlington Magazine, it's clear that SER is a cut above the rest. Owned by a family deeply rooted in Spanish culture, they've created a space that feels like a friend's home—a friend who loves to cook and share tales of their homeland.
SER isn't just about food; it's about the love, passion, and heritage of Spain. Every dish tells a story, every bite is a journey. If you're in Arlington and crave an authentic Spanish escapade, SER awaits.
