Hey there my beautiful friends!
This is a throwback to the beautiful Spanish restaurant – UNA I visited recently and deserved to be posted up in my blogging world.
Snuggled up in a quiet area of Rochester park it is definitely a hidden gem in terms of the beautiful scenery location. It is like something extracted from Greek garden while the interior radiates with a colonial theme. Well, not too bad for ambiance which was definitely worth the drive up. We were greeted and escorted by friendly waiters into the cozy restaurant .
The starters were standard bread though it had pretty hard crust But olive oil and balsamic vinegar is my favorite so i can’t help it but be biased that they did start off on the right key for me 🙂 And I went for my earl grey tea (as usual) to start my dinner.
I did opt for a vegetarian option and no regrets! Dossed with grilled seasonal vegetables such as eggplants , onions, peppers the well marination and grill that gave the apt tangy taste. And it was nicely finished with a runny egg and some bread cubes to give a different texture to the rather mushy meal.
My partner went for a whole spring chicken. This took awhile to be served as it was grilled to perfection with crispy skin! However I felt it would have been nice to have some vegetables as the sides – you have to order the sides separately. The portion was definitely big but taste wise the opinion i got was it was juicy and tender but somehow it had a slight bitter taste.
Dessert time ! Churros! I am massive churros person and once I saw this on the menu I decided my desserts before my main course meal 😀
The crispy yet donut-y dessert was the next sure winner! They were accompanied by some hot dark chocolate dip and honey dossed ice cream. What a way to end my meal 🙂
Overall it was surly an expensive affair. Since it was a special day , we splurged on this beautiful restaurant that definitely gave quality dish accompanied by excellent service and beautiful ambiance. And Psst…I would personally recommend the Escalivada & Fried Egg 😉
