We love tapas so when we found ourselves in Atlantic City recently we checked out The Continental. They call their food global tapas and everything was very good. The restaurant space itself has a really cool vibe. It was pretty dark for taking good pictures of the food so hopefully you can still see how good everything was.
There are several different seating areas at The Continental. When you first approach the front of the restaurant by walking through the The Pier Shops at Caesar’s you see a ring of tables surrounding a pretty cool fire pit. Next you see an area that resembles outdoor seating with rattan-backed chairs and tables where we sat. Then there’s a seating area that’s near the bar and inside glassed-in walls. It’s a cool setup which creates many different ambiances that you can pick from depending on the kind of night you want.
We tried quite a few dishes so here are the highlights.
Beginning at the top of the picture, the Tuna Tartare Potato Skins were a great mix of cool creamy tuna and warm lightly crisped potato. Next up, clockwise, are the Korean Pulled Pork Tacos which were excellently spicy and sweet. Finally, in this picture, there’s the Shanghai Vegetable Dumplings which were just kind of standard—good but not great.
We also tried the beef satay which was nicely spiced and had a really nice creamy yogurt dipping sauce. The Kobe Sliders were VERY good. The buns were lightly toasted and the meat was nice and juicy.
All in all we had an excellent meal in a really cool place and the best part was that it actually felt pretty intimate despite being in a giant mall in the middle of AC. How much better can it get, right?
Here are the rest of our pictures from our night at The Continental:
