Today we managed to find a spot at the counter at Sabor – we were pretty lucky on the timing as just after we entered the last few spots at the counter were taken and then people had to eat at the bar.
We were initially not planning to drink but got tempted into having some vermouth; mine was sweet and nutty and my dining companion’s herbal and refreshing.
Although the seafood looked great, displayed on a bed of ice, we were tempted by the meat and veg options. Croquettes were light and the tempura pepper, filled with goat’s cheese and drizzled with honey was excellent. We also ate bread with tomatoes and ham, a piece of Iberica loin with a green sauce (mojo verde), a tomato, parsley and sausage salad, and chargrilled potatoes with sobrasada.
We managed to save enough room for dessert and had a turron flavoured set cheese with oloroso sauce and a goat’s cheese ice-cream with liquorice sauce.
We thoroughly enjoyed our impromptu lunch; all of the food was excellent, service was efficient and friendly without being overwhelming and the drinks were great too. And it didn’t cost the earth!
This is going to be one of my new favourites.
