Light Eating After Seeing The Lights

Our favorite restaurant in Málaga is now our favorite three restaurants in Málaga (and they have a fourth on the way). We discovered El Meson de Cervantes nearly six years ago during our first visit to Spain (eight months before moving here). Then, Matt and Lindy told us about their other restaurant, El Tapeo de Cervantes. And, now there's a third restaurant, Vinería Cervantes. So, that's where we went Monday night after we saw the light(s).

I've provided English descriptions beneath each photo. Their Spanish menu wouldn't load for me to copy the info and their translations don't always tell the whole story, but you'll definitely get the idea.

It seems impossible we managed to eat all this. (But, click the pics and I think you'll understand.)

SEA BREAM WRAPPED IN COURGETTE,
CARROT PUREE, AND A JUNIPER SAUCE.
RED PEPPERS STUFFED WITH COD
AND SERVED WITH A TOMATO SAUCE.
OXTAIL EMPANADILLAS.
BATTERED PRAWNS WITH TREACLE
AND A CORIANDER MAYONNAISE.
GRILLED OCTOPUS (IN AN INK SAUCE!!!) WITH SMOKED MASHED POTATOES.
(NONE FOR ME. THE SUCTION CUPS GET STUCK TO THE ROOF OF MY MOUTH.)
BOAR STEW WITH SWEET MÁLAGA WINE,
TOPPED BY A SPANISH TORTILLA.
FRIED EGGPLANT WITH TREACLE.
IBERIAN PORK WITH BAKED PUMPKIN.
PUMPKIN RISOTTO AND WILD MUSHROOMS.
WARM APPLE TART WITH VANILLA ICE CREAM.
(I DID NOT SHARE...)

      We let Matt go for it. I couldn't believe how much he ordered for four of us. We ate every last bite!

  2. It all looks good wonderful, even the octopus, but I would especially go for the first and the last!

      A local waiter last night commented on the fact that we didn't eat the plates, too!

  7. It'd have to be the eggplant, then - which looks darned nice anyway. Then I'd finish with the apple tart - and with the ice cream if it's vegan, please.

      We love that eggplant dish and this was probably the best we've had. I have a feeling (STRONG feeling) the ice cream wasn't vegan, but we'd arrange that for you.

  8. Interesting use of treacle - and the rest looks pretty damned yummy too....

      Here, treacle is called "miel de caña." It's used in a lot of dishes. This one with aubergine (eggplant in American and berenjena in Spanish), is very popular down here; we had never seen it in Sevilla.
