Dining out @ Spanish cuisine

Standard

Last night we had a special day to celebrate. For about a week we have been thinking of where to go and quite accidentally I happened to come across this site. We had never to an authentic Spanish restaurant before and the glowing reviews made us decide on this restaurant.

Zagat Survey 2003/2004
“Meigas the best Spanish cuisine this side of Madrid”

And let me tell you that it was every bit worthy of the glowing reviews it had received.

This is what we had


Hojaldre de Guindillas
Shrimps and Fresh Anchovy Salad over a Baked Guindilla Puff Pastry Garratxa Cheese with Melon, Tomatoes, Mustard and Saffron Emulsion.

Fletan
Grilled Halibut served over a sauté of Swiss Chard, Butternut Squash, Confit Potatoes, Saffron, and Ginger Reduction with Cockels and Mediterranean Mussels.

Pato
Grilled Peking Long Island Duck Breast sauté with Green Smith Apples, Panceta, Idizabal Cheese Black Sesame Seed Polenta, Dried Dates and a PX Reduction.

Arroz con Leche
Rice Pudding, Passion Fruit Ice Cream, Lemon Foam
Flan de Manzana

The food was excellent and the service impeccable. It is definitely my new favorite restaurant. I had hoped to have some Paella but that is available only on Sundays. I have to go back for that. I am so glad we picked this restaurant. Unfortunately we forgot to take the camera along and so no pictures…
