Bellota-Bellota is THE quality Iberian pork specialist: the pata negra. For the brand, the pig bred in 10.000-sqm oak forest is king, it learnt to “go over hunger” during burning summers, eating some 800kg of acorns (bellota) during long autumns and stocking fat for the upcoming winter.
Even though Bellota Bellota has many premium quality products, the brand is known and renown by pata negra amateurs. Thinking we were just going in an average Bellota Bellota delicatessen, we have discovered a tasting counter, a restaurant that is open non-stop to meet all gourmets’ needs.
High table, Spanish azulejos and exposed bricks, the room sets the tone. As for the new menu, good Spanish wines and exceptional products await; the bests of the house? Exceptional pata negra volcanos – including the divine guiluelo – as well as a small novelty, the cooked white ham volcano, a paleta cocida to die for! We also went for the two new taramasalatas - with trout roes and five berries served with alder tree-smoked salmon by Byzance. Wonderful starters as tasty as deliicous!
Moving on to main courses, Bellota Bellota serves a deliciously seared pluma served with pimietos del padron and served with a new side: the rump steak from Galicia, cooked à la plancha to share. What a treat!
Finish with a plate of cheese, mancego of course with peppers and truffles, matured for 9 months, served with a dessert from Privé de Dessert!
And for more confidentiality, Bellota Bellota enjoys a hidden floor, almost secret... The den for true ham lovers. In the basement, the well-vaulted cellar features four tables to meet connoisseurs. Note workshops and masterclasses are provided in small groups to discover Iberian hams and meats.
More restaurants exist, like by the Champs-Elysées, but the confidentiality of the restaurant set rue Nicot makes it our favorite one... Without any regret, book away and enjoy!
