New spanish restaurant from the former racion chef, teresa montaño. Nice neighborhood restaurant, but not something to drive crosstown for.
pan con tomate - sourdough, grated tomato, garlic, olive oil, sea salt
croqueta de jamon - fritter of jamon serrano and local milk
Highlight of the night. Perfectly fried and crispy shell with a creamy and porky filling. I would like to try their mushroom and truffle croqueta next time.
mussels en escabeche - fava bean puree on toast
served cold. pretty good, toast was a little too thick.
jamon iberico de bellota - fermin, pata negra
this could have been cut thinner.
boquerones y mantequilla - mind fish co. tuna and anchovy goat butter, herb roasted radish
calamares en su tinta - grilled local squid, caramelized onion salsa tinta, arròz negra crisp
squid was a little chewy, the sweet caramelized onion was good.
gambas a la plancha - blue prawns, cherry tomato, garlic, brandy de jerez
good, wish there was more garlic
costillas de elote - grilled corn, sweet corn and saffron butter, manchego, lime salt, hot paprika
i liked this, the cob was cut into quarters length wise, so you eat this like ribs
paella - prawns, mussels, squid, lobster fumet, sherry aioli
good lobster flavor in the rice but unfortunately no socarrat
crema catalana, cherries
