It was a rainy day but luckily we managed to park just in front of the restaurant:
We didn't sit inside, but it looks cosy, with lots of wooden surfaces and Spanish touches (eg. Spanish posters):
We started off with the Albondigas - Pork & beef meatballs (RM 12++), and Pinchos Ternera - Beef skewers (RM 19++):
Both were quite good:
- the meatballs were chunky and tasty, paired well with the tomato based sauce.
- the beef skewers were tender and fairly well marinated.
(Would definitely order the meatballs again)
SooJ ordered the Iberico Pressa - Iberico pork ribs (RM 62++), which is one of the specialities here:
Not that it tasted bad (actually, it was tasty and tender, albeit being artery cloggingly rich)... but the serving was a bit small.
(Can't be helped I guess - Iberico is a very expensive type of pork)
I was trying to be healthy that night so I tried the Confit Cod (RM 46++):
OMG. It took me by surprise how good it was!
(I really wasn't expecting a place specialising in pork to do fish so well!)
No complaints at all - the cod was tender, tasty (rich and cod-dy without being too cod-dy... Erm, does that make sense to you? Haha...) and was a good serving size for the price.
Lastly we had the Creme Brulee (RM 15++):
It wasn't fantastic but not bad too, with the (strangely?) slightly cold cream topped with a thin layer of crispy caramelized sugar.
Can't wait to go back to try out the cod again as well as more of the tapas (they have a good selection of cold and hot tapas).
:) :) :)
As a wise man once said: "Closer to Cod. And in Cod we trust"!
Overall: Good selection of Spanish tapas and mains, specialises in pork! (Iberico and lots of special hams), friendly service BUT nothing much bad to say except that it can be a bit tough to find parking in the area during peak hours.
