An outstanding gem I randomly encountered: Restaurant Recoveco (1. January 2020)

Sometimes, you randomly find a little gem and the Recoveco was exactly that! While actually being on the way to the hotel, I passed the Recoveco which looked super appealing, so I decided to have a late lunch here instead. As an amuse bouche, “blue potato and pork belly” was served. The pork belly wasn’t […]

Lender of last resort – only if you have to: Love Horno Artesano (1. January 2020)

Lender of last resort – only if you have to: Love Horno Artesano (1. January 2020)

The Love Horno Artesano was one of the few places which was open in the morning on January 1st, so it was the place of choice for a brief breakfast. I went for a “bocadillo de tomato y anchoas con queso y jamón iberico” (EUR 4.35) which was actually quite okay. What wasn’t so okay […]

Disappointing New Year’s Eve dinner: Restaurant Azahar @ Hospes Las Casas Del Rey De Baeza (31. December 2019)

Disappointing New Year’s Eve dinner: Restaurant Azahar @ Hospes Las Casas Del Rey De Baeza (31. December 2019)

Let’s say, I had high hopes for the “NYE dinner” (EUR 100.00) incl. wines (EUR 35.00) but I was not entirely happy with the experience. The starter consisted of “pickled scallop in grapefruit with herring caviar” which looked nice but frankly, pickled scallop isn’t really my thing. Now, before we continue, I have to make […]

Absolutely decent breakfast experience: AC Lounge @ AC Hotel Córdoba (31. December 2019)

As bad as the experience the previous evening was in terms of service and all of it, the breakfast buffet in exactly the same location is quite enjoyable. They offer a tiny bit of everything ranging from fresh fruit … … to bacon … … pastry … … cakes and jam … … cereals, tomato […]

Quite a horrible dinner experience: AC Lounge @ AC Hotel Córdoba (30. December 2019)

Quite a horrible dinner experience: AC Lounge @ AC Hotel Córdoba (30. December 2019)

When you are too lazy to leave the hotel, then usually dining at the hotel premise turns out to be a good idea. In this case, I’m not entirely sure. I went down at around 7:40 pm to try to get some food from the kitchen in the AC Lounge restaurant. Now, there was absolutely […]

Sweet but good ice cream: Heladería La Fontana (30. December 2019)

After an extensive lunch it was time to further stroll through the city and the Heladería La Fontana turned out to be the perfect stop to get some ice cream for the way. I went for the “Dulce de Leche” and “White Chocolate” (EUR 5.00) which was a very sweet combination but also a very […]

Good and simple but surprisingly big tapas: Taberna Casa Globo (30. December 2019)

Good and simple but surprisingly big tapas: Taberna Casa Globo (30. December 2019)

After wandering the city of Córdoba by foot for a couple of hours, it was time for a brief lunch stop and the Taberna Casa Global just looked like an enjoyable location to do exactly so. Once seated, you are served “bread with olives” (EUR 0.95). Now, I wasn’t hungry for the bread but I […]

A menu based entirely on European ingredients with mind-blowing service choreography: Restaurant Noor (29. December 2019)

A menu based entirely on European ingredients with mind-blowing service choreography: Restaurant Noor (29. December 2019)

I think the highlight of the whole Andalusia trip was the visit to Noor. Now, you would not really expect that much from Córdoba as it is – compared to Málaga or Granada less of a fancy place. But it turns out that the restaurant of Paco Morales, a former chef at Mugaritz, actually creates […]
