If you want to enjoy one of the finest foods in Seattle and are looking to have an amazing time with family and friends, Andaluca Restaurant is the place you should head to.
Located in the gorgeous Mayflower Park Hotel, Andaluca Restaurant and Bar is known for its romantic and dreamy atmosphere and excellent cuisine.
Their menu offers a varied dishes ranging from Mediterranean inspired flavors to Northwest entrees, thus catering to a wider audience.
And for all those who follow a gluten-free diet, you will love the wide variety of gluten-free meals that they offer. The restaurant also offers complimentary valet parking service to its guests which in my opinion is really convenient since finding parking, especially in downtown Seattle can be a bit difficult.
Here’s a glimpse of the delicious food served at Andaluca –
We started off with a glass of Sangria and Manhattan along with Tres Leches which is basically Cantabrian cheese produced by the marriage of three milks – goat, cow & sheep and is paired with apple mostarda.
Seared Pork Belly – celery root puree, pickled apples, apple gastrique & fermented cabbage (11)
The pork was really, really soft and the combination of celery root puree and pickled apples was something that we truly enjoyed.
Shish Taouk – skewered chicken, turmeric crème Fraiche, cumin, lemon, tomato, yogurt (11)
I have a soft spot towards shish kebabs or shish taouk and the moment I saw this on their menu, I knew I had to try it out. The chicken was perfectly marinated and cooked and the turmeric Fraiche had an unexpectedly delicious flavor. I would gladly have more of this.
Andaluca Paella – prawns, clams, mussels, chicken, chorizo, arborio rice, harissa butter, saffron broth (39)
Apparently, the Paella is one of their highly recommended dishes, so I couldn’t really pass it up, could I? And well, I have nothing but amazing words for this dish.
The portion was pretty huge and you can easily split it amongst two if you are not too hungry. We actually ended up taking half of it as to-go since we wanted to keep some room for dessert (which I’m glad we did because their desserts are phenomenal!)
But for real, doesn’t this look absolutely tempting?!
Pan Roasted Black Cod – Grilled rutabaga, red cabbage, dill-horseradish cream, watercress (39)
The fish tasted really fresh and the red cabbage & dill-horseradish cream was a surprisingly delicious combo.
Liquid Chocolate Cake – Crème caramel gelato, black lava salt, caramel sauce, cocoa nib tuile (8.50)
I’ve had my fair share of desserts and Lava cake is one of my favorites. But this was by far, THE BEST Lava cake or Liquid Chocolate Cake that I have ever had! It was rich, creamy and the warm, molten chocolate just oozes out of the cake, taking you on a faraway dreamy land.
It is what basically what your chocolate dreams are made of 🙂
Crème Catalan – Brûléed almond custard, tuile, lavender sugar (8.50)
Wonderfully presented, perfectly creamy and not overly sweet – just the way we like it!
With it’s dreamy and luxe ambiance and perfectly crafted dishes paired with an excellent service, Andaluca restaurant is the perfect way to spend a memorable evening with your friends and family. Definitely, add it to your list if you haven’t already paid a visit to this gorgeous restaurant.
As for me, I am glad we decided to try it out and hope to visit it again!
