Garum 2.1 Bistronomic Tapas Bar ♥ ♥

 I had only one meal in Cordoba so I researched heavily before my trip to make sure that one
 lunch would be special. Garum 2.1, with its many awards, seemed to be the perfect choice.

The small restaurant felt old yet modern. It felt so... Cordoba!

who I met serendipitously just the night before

Garum 2.1 serves bold and creative tapas, four of which won awards at gastronomic events in Spain. Of course, we had to order them all. 

Tapas with medals

Salmorejo Amontillado. First Prize Best Tapa, Cordoba Gastronomica 2010. 
This was excellent, indeed. Light and creamy and full of umami.
One of the, if not the very best I had this trip. 

Crispy Pork Trotter. Second Prize Best Tapa, Eutopia 2011.

Pork trotter innards

Oxtail Churro with Chocolate. Finalist Innovation Tapa, Cordoba Gastronomica 2011.

Honestly, this was just alright. Sounded exciting but didn't really do anything for me.

Cream of Goat's Cheese with Spanish Heavenly Custard. 
First Prize Best Dessert, Porsche Gourmet 2014.

We ordered a few other dishes, too, and they were just okay. I know because, if not for these photos, I have almost no recollection of them.

Prawns wrapped in potato shreds with saffron aioli

Small cuttlefish grilled on a bed of onion and its own ink

Low temperature cod with vegetables

Except for our favorite dish of Iberico pork loin in soy and honey reduction served over couscous. 
Tasted like pork humba so it reminded us of home.

With my lovely date Tessa. Garum 2.1 will always be memorable to me because of 
the wonderful company.
