Ryo, Lavinia and I had a long day (tend to have long working days here), so decided to treat ourselves to a nice dinner on the way back to the hotel.
Remember that post about me watching Bourdain’s Parts Unknown 4 days before my departure? Since I arrived, I have seen 3 people from that garden party in a restaurant, ate close to everything they had in the show – and today, I finally visited the fish restaurant. It was the best food I had so far – the menu is fixed so you have no choice and no idea what you get. Apparently, the owners is a little crazy and you shouldn’t go when he is mad. Well, he wasn’t there for our dinner, so I guess we got lucky. The line when we were leaving was pretty long as the restaurant is very small and fits about 20 people.
The dinner started with olives, hot pepper spread, Moroccan bread, the raisin/juice drink, smoked olives/walnuts, and fish stew. Continued with some hot fish spices and then ended with John Dory with garlic/cilantro. Desert was honey/nuts and strawberries/honey/nuts. Overall, a winner. #ibmcsc
