Barcelona came to Casa !
New in Casa and, in one word: EXTRAORDINARY ! Ciudad Condal, to be found in Maarif Extension, opened its doors the beginning of november. Like the name reveals, Ciudad Condal offers a true Catalan menu with a true Catalan Chef de Cuisine, Gerard Prat. Also the decor and ambiance reminds immediately of that amazing city Barcelona. It is bright, modern and intimate, with inviting bar on which several tapas dishes are presented and with a small but sunny and very romantic terrace. But dear friends, enough now about the ambiance, because what makes this catalan restaurant really unique is the quality of the food. For us, it absolutely belongs to the top of Casablanca. WooHoo had a degustation of the menu, we were so lucky to taste many delicious dishes. We started with a very refreshing and beautiful coloured gazpacho with flavours of apple and beet and smoked sardines, nicely soft and almost creamy.
The beef carpaccio with a mousse of ' foie gras' and truffle was so tender , it melted in our mouth. And the ' fideau' -a catalan version of paella- super tasteful with real burrata in it and again, truffle. Make sure you keep some place for a true catalan dish, the crema catalana but please, try also the ' pain perdu' which belongs to the best WooHoo ever tasted.
Barcelona came to Casa. In one word: impressive.
