Gastrology bloggers dined courtesy of Luzia.
Located on the vibrant La Ramblas, Luzia is a brasserie which celebrates the concept of a non-stop street grill.
The restaurant serves a delicious array of tapas, salads, pastas, sandwiches and wood oven pizzas.
We loved the dishes we tried. The Iberic ham with tomato bread was beautiful. Long, thin leg of ham with a deep golden hue to its fat. The meat was dark red, marbled with veins of fat and went well with the slightly tart tomato bread.
The fried artichokes hearts were wonderfully crisp and beautifully caramelised. Although vegetarian dishes are often easily dismissed, this particular gem is one that commands respect. More than a side dish, it was a highlight of our evening.
The tuna belly with olive paste and dates was another highlight. A mixture of salinity from the olives contrasted magically with the sweetness of the dates.
The mini flat breads with marinated anchovies on the other hand had a wonderful depth of flavour.
Dessert was delicate apple pie with house made vanilla ice cream. A sweet end to our delicious meal.
A combination between a brasseries and pizzeria, Luzia offers a compelling seasonal menu to suit any time of the day.
