It was very good, the service was very good, I went for lunch, so it was not as busy as if would have been at dinner time. This also allowed me to have the rest of the day free to wonder around this beautiful city and not worry about making it on time for dinner.
The best dishes @ Cinc for me was the Scallop with artichoke pure (oh so good), and the chocolate with olive oil, bread crumbs and a touch of salt (amazing). You couldn't imagine that olive oil would go well with chocolate, but it was a very fruity olive oil and really enhanced all the other flavors...and very decadent end to a meal.
The olive oil tasting is a separate charge than the rest of the tasting menu (but oh well right!) go big or go home!
La Paradeta (by the Sagrada Familia church) that is opened on Sunday, was perfect, fresh seafood that you choose by weight and they offer only a couple of ways to cook each one. Very fresh and tasty. Perfect after sightseeing the SF!
|@ Cinc Sentits - Cava to start the adventures!|
|Olives stuffed with garlic (superb), spicy almonds and the middle was so forgettable I can't really remember (but not so good anyways)|
|Cinc's signature meal starter - A shot of maple syrup with creme anglaise ( I have read mix reviews about this one) but for me if was not overly sweet nor overpowering for the rest of my meals, it was interesting and very good.|
|Cinc's take on the classic Catalan dish Pa'am tomaquet - Bread croutons with garlic foam and tomato sorbet...small, refreshing and tasty.|
|"This" is why I came here - coca de foie gras caramelized (very crunchy on top) sweet, delicious...oh-so-good!|
|This dish was good, but forgettable, I honestly can't remember what was in it...but don't take me wrong...it was good...not all dishes can be stars I guess, right?|
|Cochinillo (pork) with a super, super crispy top (OMG!) this was sooo good...i know I keep saying that, but this one was cooked sous vide for 12hrs!!! then caramelized on top until crispy perfection!|
|Cheese course...very good with home made accompaniments|
|Pistachio cake, pistachio paste with raspberry sorbet, fresh raspberries and creme anglaise.|
|Thick yummy dark dark chocolate, thin layer of fruity olive oil, vanilla iced cream and breadcrumbs...decadent & delicious.|
