“Dried octopus katsuobushi and baby squids” @qiqedacosta

The talent and sensibility of @qiqedacosta never ceases to amaze me. There’s always a delicate combination of deliciousness, refinement and technique, expressing his view of the terroir and his interpretation of the evolution of cuisine, which makes every meal memorable. “Almond flower” is the first dish of his menu “cooking beauty”. Next, “Cured black tuna with dry aromatic herbs” and “Chilly crab and prawn flavoured ice bread”.

After visiting Quique Dacosta’s flagship restaurant last year we have returned this July on a Sunday evening.
This year the QD restaurant offer the Self Portrait menu for 210 Euro with additional wine pairing.
This menu contains many elements from last year’s “Evolution and Origen” menu, just few dishes were changed and some dishes had some fine tuning, all of them were creative and delicious.
After the appetisers in the starter section they have one new dish, the “Glutinous rice cocoa”... More

Quique Dacosta is the pioneer of the Spanish nouvelle cuisine. We were fortunate enough to spend an unforgettable evening at his restaurant.
We have opted for the "Evolution y origen" menu
From the arrival it took 4 hours until we have completed our dining experience. The service was smooth and efficient yet very professional. This'll be an evening long remembered, we can't wait to return and try his other menu in the near future.
