For only 10 Euros I had one of the most fabulous lunches I can remember, and definitely the best I’ve had in Spain so far. After I happened upon the small, demurely lit Moroccan-meets-flamboyant decorated restaurant La Llantia Dorada (at Hierba, 4 by the Plaza de la Virgen. Air conditioned too!
My drink of choice (beer) was followed by a molded lentil salad sitting on greens which it turned out also had prawns. The grilled trout was sublimely fresh, delightfully topped with candied lemon slices with a ring of olive oil surrounding. A few cherry tomatoes and a pepper accented perfectly as a simple dish flavored by the accompanying fruit and vegetables. An ultra rich dense chocolate cake with a liquor scented ice cream followed.
Considering the crap on which I easily blew 10 Euros on in Barcelona, this entire meal was a refreshing change.
After eating there I learned the restaurant was listed in the Rough Guide!
