Last weekend at Cornucopia, I had the opportunity to sit down to a five course lunch (with wine pairings) put on by España Restaurant on Denman St. I had wanted to try it for a while, and I’m so glad I got the chance in such an intimate setting.
One of my favourite dishes of the lunch was a roasted fennel with spanish ham. It was melt-in-your-mouth delicious and a perfect little appetizer.
The fish stew was next and I never knew a stew with fish could be so rich, but this was velvety with full flavours and absolutely delicious.
I loved the simplicity of the roasted pork loin. It wasn’t trying to be anything fancy, but the flavours were incredible!
This was the view from our lunch. It was absolutely spectacular.
The dessert was refreshing yet rich. It was a vanilla bean custard with a tangerine jelly, served with sherry. Talk about decadence!
One of my favourite red wines from the lunch, plus a gorgeous dining room table that has since gone on my must-find list!
The food, the wine, the people, and the setting, were all equally amazing. I highly recommend checking out España in Vancouver. While you won’t be sitting looking over a mountainous terrain, you will be enjoying some of the best Spanish food in Vancouver.
