Our next stop during my March/April tour was to Andalusia, but I couldn’t help but shoehorn in a visit to Quique Dacosta’s Llisa Negra in Valencia. Somehow, on the promise of some excellent seafood and one of the world’s best cheesecakes, I managed to persuade my friends that the best way to get from Lech in Austria to Andalusia was in-fact to drive to Munich, fly to Barcelona, train to Valencia and finally fly to Seville 🤷🏼🙄
Anyway, timing was glorious, a late morning train got us to lunch as the doors were opening and an early evening flight meant we had time to enjoy a long lingering lunch and snaffle our way through as many of the gems on the menu as possible.
I would say that it was all very good apart from perhaps the cheesecake which was definitely not as good as the last time I was there. The last time I was there was with Margaret Lam and Steve Plotnicki , so I always try to factor in that a meal in their company will usually be of an elevated nature with a very much more ‘eager to please’ vibe coming from the kitchen. I have included a video of that cheesecake at the end for comparison for all the cheesecake geekery out there 🤓
I will maybe put the cheesecake down to it possibly having been put in the fridge at the end of lunch service and the three of us then catching them slightly off guard by ordering a whole one to ourselves 😬
All very good though and highly recommended should you be in the area.
