El Bulli is a restaurant located outside of Barcelona that is consistently ranked as one of the top 3 restaurants in the world.  I wasn’t able to get a reservation at El Bulli.

However, just outside of Seville is the El Bulli Hotel (http://www.elbullihotel.com/benazuzaweb_eng.html) which has a restaurant that serves the all time best dishes ever created by El Bulli.  I did eat there.

The Menu

The tasting menu was 16 courses with no option for a wine pairing.  The courses were:

  • Almond fizz
  • Spherical green olive
  • Fried baby fish with lemon
  • Mimetic peanut
  • Quicoguaca
  • Iberian ham baguette
  • Natural razor shell
  • Deconstructed omelet potatoes
  • Oyster tartar with marrow
  • Tuna “ventresca” with tuna mayonnaise
  • Gnocchis of polenta
  • Red Mullet with beetroot raviolis
  • Rabbit shoulder in “salmorejo” sauce with mango pure and mascarpone cheese
  • Bubbles
  • White chocolate English bread
  • Crunchy chocolate with raspberries

This was without question the best dinning experience of my life!

Here are the pictures I could find of the meal care of Schaloka Chantha.
