El Nacional – one of the most beautiful restaurants I have ever stepped foot in. Though I have not had the chance to taste any creation from one of the four dining experiences inside, Malia and I got a sneak peak of the place when we were exploring the city. Katie claims their house white is potentially the best wine she has ever had, along with something she described as “a meatball thing covered in potato with a crunchy outside” …I trust her. Anything crunchy works for me.
UPDATE: Since this post, I’ve eaten at El Nacional’s Seafood restaurant a couple of times. Their tuna tartare and seafood paella is a must – I seriously couldn’t stop eating. It is extremely entertaining to sit next to their fish “market” where the biggest fish I’ve ever seen are laying on mounds of ice and salt. I also had the chance to verify how amazing El Nacional’s selection of white wine is, and I was not disappointed. It is definitely some of the best wine I’ve ever had!
