No Can Do
If you think sardines always come in a can, think again. The sardinas a la brasa en escabeche ($7), one of the many hot tapas available at Andalucia Tapas and Taverna (1201 San Jacinto, 832-319-6673), are fresh sardines. Usually larger than the canned version, they're split in two, stripped of their heads and bones, and then dipped in olive oil and grilled on a charcoal grill. Before being served, they're topped with a mixture of finely diced onions, red peppers and garlic. These fresh sardines are fabulous.
