I’m so happy that La Marcha has made brunch a permanent fixture. I visited when it was a pop-up,
and I loved the brunch. Only our churros were over-fried; everything else was perfect!

This place lives up to the hype!

I've read numerous positive articles about La Marcha, received great recommendations about the establishment from co-workers, AND live three blocks away. It was finally time for me to give this place a try on a Tuesday evening.

Honestly, going in, I didn't really know what to expect on the menu. YES, I knew it was a tapas place, YES, I knew there would be a heavy Spanish influence, but when I sat down and fixed my eyes on the actual menu, I was pleasantly surprised - Wild boar! Rabbit! Snails! Duck!

I get giddy over less-than-common ingredients and my adventurous spirit immediately came alive. We tried the wild boar meatballs in a delicious sherry tomato cream + manchego + guindilla peppers. Pretty much dipping anything into that sauce was magical. I could have eaten 10 pounds of the crispy squid in black squid ink aioli. The flatbread topped with dijón honey cream, caramelized red onions, manchego, jamón serrano, pears, and candied walnuts....holy crappppp. Lastly, the traditional Valenciana Paella was a great sentimental choice as I was in Valencia last year. Where else can you find rabbit, snail, duck breast paella?? You. Must. Give. It. A. Try.

I'm so glad this place is right in my neighborhood and I was thoroughly impressed by its cuisine, staff, and ambiance. I know where I'll be taking out-of-towners next time they visit me in Berkeley!
