I stumbled upon this Venezuelan restaurant by chance yesterday with two friends, it’s not usually open on Sunday’s but they were offering a special mother’s day brunch. We are not mothers but we definitely enjoyed the festivities anyway. The brunch was €18 which included 2 glasses each of fruity Cava Chamcalet and some freshly squeezed OJ on the side, if we fancied making it into a bucks fizz.
The service was impeccable throughout, the extremely talented young chef Matteo, easily recognised by his chef’s knife tattoo on his right arm, came to present the menu options to us; he kindly asked if we wanted it spoken in Spanish or English. Spanish of course! How else am I going to learn. We all wanted the vegetarian menu which was a mixture of delicious cheeses, various dips including orange butter and Baba Ganoush, an open asparagus and poached egg burger, a fruit platter of strawberries, kiwi, grapes and peaches, a guava dip, and Arepas – a south American corn cake which you cut in half and fill with the aforementioned cheeses and dips. It was an incredible feast and we were all stuffed by this point but all wanted to try the dessert which was a sticky Guanábana cake served with a complimentary shot of Santa Teresa 40% rum. As we left my friend Hannah and I were given a beautiful mothers day red rose, a lovely finishing touch to a beautifully unplanned meal.
