DAY 2.-

Mugaritz is THE RESTAURANT! Nothing is what you think it will be… it’s different, original, surprising, charming, funny, unique, delicious… excellent! According to Restaurant Magazine is the 3rd best restaurant in the World, and from my humble point of view I couldn’t agree more.

Andoni Luis Aduriz bewitched us and kept us in a delicious trance through the whole meal; each dish is a wink to a classic or a twist towards the unknown where nothing is what it seems; but flavours, textures and funny ingredients combine to reach excellence.

The team of waiters will make you feel at home with their charm and good mood. They are willing to explain you any doubts you might have about the food; they will make your stay at Mugaritz unforgettable.

Here are some of the pictures of the dishes. I will not reveal what they are because I don’t want to spoil the surprise, but if you have the chance, go visit Mugaritz and have your own opinion!

This might look like a wine grape with some ham, but…

These might look like green peas, but…

This might look like a small cheese, but…

These might look like pine nuts, but…

Yes, this one is what it looks like: smashed millet, and it’s a magical moment during the lunch, but… don’t want to reveal more.
This dessert might take you back to your childhood’s memories.

This might look like a square rock, but…

Simple and brilliant at the same time! The best selection of the market fruits.

After 20 fantastic dishes, I surrender to Andoni’s absolute brilliance!!!

It might happen that if you give it a try, you get a complete different menu; it always depends on the season, on what he finds that day fresh in the market, on the product quality and of course on his inspiration!

Most Chefs will come to your table after the meal and ask if you’ve enjoyed it and so… Andoni takes you to the kitchen and explains his culinary vision and thoughts to you while cooks and waiters play their fabulous dance in the kitchen :D.

Thank you for such a wonderful experience!!!

I’d love to visit Mugaritz! I’m planning a trip to Bilbao and San Sebastian in the fall. I’d be thrilled to hear any other recommendations you have!
