9 Reinas, Barcelona : Restaurant review

Being a big fan of Argentinian steak, expectations were high and we weren't disappointed. What I like about these restaurants is that they allow the main ingredient to be the star of the show. Of course, one can order sauces, sides etc., but they don't overshadow what IMO is the finest beef on the planet. After a delightful amuse bouche and some bread, we both opted for the 200g fillet. It was simply presented alongside both sweet and new potatoes, and to accompany, we had an array of grilled vegetables including asparagus, chicory, artichoke and wild mushrooms. The meat was incredibly tender and moist, but most of all, it just mooed of beef. To compliment such a fine piece of meat, the waiter suggested an excellent Malbec that was only 22E.

Dessert was tempting, but wanting to savour every last after taste of the beef and wine, not to mention my ever expanding waistline, it was declined. The service is very professional, yet friendly and the d├ęcor is simple, yet chic. Highly recommended.
