Comerc 24

Last Thursday, before packing my bag for Madrid, I celebrated my success ending with Finance Midterm at the highly sought after restaurant. The place was recommended by my art teacher, who after found out how passionate I was about food, gave me a list of restaurants in the city to try out.

Feeling pretty happy with myself, I treated myself with a Grand Festival Menu – 10 courses and dessert. Halfway through and I thought I would burst. The food was good but I guess after few days of home cook meal, my stomach somehow shrunk. Image

 

 

 

 

The meal started with six appetizers: mushroom soup, monkfish in black sesame and seaweed, cauliflower in vinegar, pizza 24 and sponge ceviche. My favorite of all was the cauliflower and pizza 24. For the cauliflower, the sour taste was so elegantly infused that you don’t feel burn at the throat at all but a only a lingering taste of vinegar, which goes particularly well with monkfish and a sip of mushroom sauce. And that pizza, yes i think I can go vegetarians if everything is that good!

The meal was absolutely pleasant, took me 2.5 hours to cruise through. However, the meal was not complete without me discovering my new favorite wine Bott-Geyl Gewurtraminer Les Elements – sweet wine with a note of rose petal and litchi ;)!

So what do you think? Would you pay a visit to Comerc 24 when you are in town?!
