Food review Mr Porter
Now, let's talk about the real star – the food. The menu is a delight, with gourmet dishes divided into sections like 'little kick start,' 'carpaccio,' 'salad,' 'meat,' 'more meat,' 'seafood,' and 'accessories.' There's even a separate menu for those sinful desserts that are impossible to resist.
The Zucchini Carpaccio was a refreshing surprise, a delicate dance of thinly sliced zucchini adorned with vibrant bursts of flavor. The light, citrusy dressing complemented the crispness of the zucchini, creating a dish that was not only visually appealing but also a delightful exploration of textures and tastes.
The Beef Tartare with Beluga Caviar elevated the dining experience to a new level of sophistication. The finely minced beef was expertly seasoned, allowing the rich flavors to shine. Topped with indulgent Beluga Caviar, each bite was a symphony of textures, the velvety beef merging seamlessly with the luxurious burst of caviar. A true indulgence for the discerning palate.
The Sirloin Steak at this establishment was a testament to culinary mastery. Cooked to perfection, the sirloin showcased a tantalizing crust on the outside while maintaining a succulent, juicy interior. The flavors were robust, enhanced by the steak's natural marbling. Served with precision and accompanied by thoughtful sides, this dish exemplified the art of grilling and left a lasting impression of what a remarkable steak should be.
After a short break, we couldn't resist dessert. The chocolate explosion was a spectacle – a massive chocolate shell filled with milk chocolate mousse, macaron, shortbread biscuits, blackberries, cherry and white chocolate balls, passion fruit mousse, and crispy balls, all drizzled with raspberry sauce. Poured with dry ice and theatrically smashed, it was a chocolate lover's dream.
Despite that, the desserts were a fitting end to an evening of decadence at MR PORTER Barcelona. In a city known for its culinary prowess, MR PORTER steakhouse has firmly established itself as a must-visit destination, offering not just a meal but an unforgettable experience for your senses.
