Torched, drizzled, topped
Life at elBulli shaped Raurich’s way of thinking, understanding and doing. A passion for the kitchen and an unadulterated respect for raw materials are definitely evident in Dos Palillos’ dishes. The kimchi de col i calamar ‒ kimchi of cabbage and squid ‒ and sashimi tibio de calamar ‒ sashimi of warm squid (as seen on the photos) are a great duo. The sashimi of warm squid was briefly torched and then drizzled in a lightly salted squid sauce, making the squid super tender. A hit of yuzu tops the dish off perfectly.
Prices vary between $60 - $77 (€55 - €70) per person and include three courses, dessert and coffee.
