This restaurant reminded me of something I could probably find in Japan. I love these restaurants located in the middle of nowhere that serve outstanding food! Chef Fatima was quite the character and I thoroughly enjoyed our lunch there. The weather was perfect and we hung out in the garden afterwards.

So this is the setting of Restaurante Fatima. A beautiful, isolated, small village in Montealegre, about an hour outside the city of Valladolid. We arrived at around 1pm and there was not a single person. The people in these small villages take siesta seriously I suppose.
Pork loin with sesame sprouts (?) and apple vinaigrette
Potato soup with bacon wrapped green beans.
A lot of people didn’t like this dish but it was quite amazing. Lamb offals (liver, heart etc) with egg and crispy crispy delicious bacon.
I personally preferred this pil pil to the one we had at Inigo Lavabo. At first I thought my cod was undercooked but it was because it was so gelatinous (cod chins I think?). The sauce was amazing!
Pigeon with barley. The barley was absolutely amazing.
