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. Stop in at 38 Main Street in Rosemary Beach, 11 a.m.-9 p.m. daily. Order online or call 850-534-3004.
There are a variety of choices, many gluten-free and vegetarian. Share the La Crema 30A 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. Try the patatas bravas, 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. The seafood selection features 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 chef’s daily creation featuring fresh, local Gulf seafood, while the lobster mac bursts 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.
For the kiddos, there’s something a little more to their liking. They can choose from grilled cheese, chicken fingers, peanut butter and jelly, or the kids’ pasta – orecchiette pasta with butter and parmesan.
It’s a chocolate-lover’s dream come true. 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 – add an infusion of mocha, peppermint, hot chili, or hazelnut for an extra zing.
Pair your treats at La Crema Tapas 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.
