I called on the Friday to make the reservation for the next day and was pleased that they could accommodate us later at 8:30pm onwards which suited us. I requested our favourite table 29 next to the pass in the kitchen.
Upon arrival it was still very busy and sadly 29 wasn't available. We had another great little table though in the front dining room tucked away in the corner where we could sit at 90 degrees to each other.
Just like last time we were well looked after and appreciated the guidance regarding what to order.
Then we shared the fish special which was a delicious piece of beautifully grilled snapper with a lemon dressing and fresh peas. I loved the sour lemon with the white fish and the sweet peas. We also shared the morcilla special which came on a bed of sweet and sour onions and capsicums and a deep fried egg. Complete contrast to the fish in that this was pure dense richness. Our final dish was another special which was a pork loin fillet with eel butter and purple cabbage. The meat was so tender and the flavours so special.
Our desserts were the 'marinated' watermelon milk pudding and the chocolate bunuelos with hazelnut sauce. The watermelon milk pudding was like runny panna cotta with some cinammon spice flavours coming through. I loved the chocolate bunuelos - light and fluffy pancake batter in a croquette shape and not overly sweet or chocolatey. Perfect for me and I didn't think I'd get through all 4 but I managed 3 easily and donated 1 to Steve. Now that I think back....maybe I could have managed 4!
Another great evening at Casa Ciuccio, If we lived closer, we'd be there all the time!
