Culler de Pau Restaurant in Reboredo, O Grove, Galicia

Culler de Pau

Only 4 months ago this restaurant got its first Michelin star

Culler de Pau is located in a small town called Reboredo in the O Grove peninsula in Galicia

The building is beautiful as well as the inside of the restaurant, not to mention the view

The food is excellent and the service as well

I felt new energy, new flavors, something different from all my previous star collection of restaurants (see post January 29), people that know what they are doing, that are proud and correct, still humble

Here is what I ate, you can read and see and tell for yourself, even better if you come and taste it personally!

amuse bouche in black stone that comes with a litte "culler de pau" (wooden spoon) to eat it. 
The serving consists of cuttlefish crispy rice with anchovies and shellfish foam, smoked sardines and dried tomatoes, and dehydrated olives. Fantastic!

amuse bouche of a ham made of pork nuggets ("lacón")
cuttlefish fished by hand one by one presented as noodles with cream of  tender garlic, the slice on top seems lard but is instead jowls. Delicious and perfect in its consistency
