Previously went here for lunch but the lunch menu should be changed because it does not show case how wonderful the food is.
For lunch they had options like fish and chips, pastas which is not tapas!
If I had not tried the evening, I would not have known how wonderful the food is.
At night, you enter the surrealistic restaurant through Gaudi's big mouth!
The restaurant was dreamy.
The chef is Mexican and was trained in Spain, hence his Mexican touch to the tapas.
Raspberry Daquiri with Chocolate Rim:
Started off with this refreshing raspberry drink that was not too sweet or syrupy.
It was lovely on a hot evening and the chocolate powder rim balances the tartness of the raspberry.
Aceitunas aliñadas $45
Theses were olives marinated with lemon, garlic and bay leaves.
They were salty and appetizing start to the meal but the lemon was not strong enough.
Tortilla de patatas $75
I loved the Spanish potato omelette because the egg was fluffy and soft with silky potatoes in it.
To be honest, this was too good to share!
Gambas al ajillo $130
These were prawns sauteed in olive oil with garlic, parsley, chilli and white wine.
Each prawn was really springy and tasty, but perhaps a little too salty.
TAQUITOS Little Tacos:
These tacos were colourful topped with silky tofu, grilled bell peppers, purple cabbage and guacamole.
Basically tasty and healthy.
Bacalao a la vizcaina con arroz a la mexicana $245
Ordered this because I love carbs and rice!
It was cod and rice smothered in sauce made of capers, olives and raisins with a hint of chili.
For improvements, the cod temperature should be hotter when it is served.
As well carbs, cheese is a must for me!
On this plate was quince jelly, Fig jam, Goats cheese, Manchego, Gondola and Brie!
Basically, this was heaven but the goats cheese was a bit too strong for me.
The Catalan creme was amazing too, it was creamy and thick.
