Hola Flatbreads and Tapas

Hey there!

Last night, Mal and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner with our friends Rob and Colleen at Hola Flatbreads and Tapas in Marshfield.

When we first arrived at the restaurant, Mal and I thought: Oh, crap, this place is in a strip mall. Of course, not every restaurant located in a strip mall is terrible, but we were a little worried we picked a bad place for dinner.

Well, as soon as we walked in, our assumptions immediately changed. Hola was adorable and cozy””both inside and out””so we grabbed a table on the outdoor patio. (When the sun set, one of the servers started a fire in the outdoor fireplace. It was quite nice.)

The food at Hola was also really great. The four of us loved everything we tried, especially the curry fried green beans””we ate two orders.

Also delicious: Roasted dates and bacon with mango vinegar and radicchio.

After our first round of food, we were still hungry, so we ordered a grilled flatbread with mushrooms, asparagus, Manchego, and truffle oil. Manchego + truffle oil = best thing ever. We devoured it in a matter of minutes, so we immediately ordered a second one. I’d go to Hola again just for their flatbreads. Holy amazing.

I loved Hola and definitely recommend it to the South Shore folks. Don’t judge a book by its cover!

Question of the Day

Which would you rather eat for dinner: flatbread or tapas?



  1. One of our favorite places! We were there Saturday night. Next time try the steak empanadas and the fig/gorganzola flatbread. Yum!

  2. That place looks REALLY good. I think I may love every picture you just posted.

    I’ve been wanting to try a flat bread pizza on the grill. I bet that would be awesome.

  3. That looks amazing!
    I have found that some of the best most authentic restaurants are a little sketchy looking on the outside, just adds to the ambiance 🙂

  4. Roasted dates with bacon? Yes please! Everything else looks awesome too.

    I usually feel the same way about restaurants in strip malls too – but my favourite restaurant is located in one! And it’s actually the highest rated restaurant in our city.

  5. Having lived in Spain, I should say tapas, but I pick flatbread. I had a really good one last week at an out-to-dinner–whole grain flatbread, hummus, roasted veggies, arugula. Yum!

  6. I would go to that place in an instant! Tapas and flatbreads are just my thing! Plus, it just reminds me of home. Give me a little bit of pan sobao, manchego cheese and a slab of salami and it feels like I’m a kid again… except I don’t eat pork products anymore. /sigh 🙂

  7. flatbread or tapas…making me choose between two or my favourites!

    I’d probably pick tapas, just because I’m the sort of person who insists on trying a bite of everyone’s dinner – if you go for tapas that’s 100% acceptable. 🙂

  8. So glad you liked Hola! (i forgot to mention it was in a strip mall….oops! haha) The curry fried green beans and flatbreads are my favorite!!!! 🙂
