What a superb find this was! Located just two blocks back from the seafront and in an alleyway between Paseo de Larios and Calle Bernabe Fernandez, Taberna Mogador has inside seating with a typically Spanish rustic style decor as well as seating outside in the alleyway which is covered by a large awning and bounded by a high whitewashed wall - so really gives an intimate feel. The menu is Spanish but some of the dishes have a Moroccan influence.
Instead of having starter and then main courses we chose three dishes to share Triangulos Rellenos de Ternera (triangles of filo pastry filled with minced beef) €7.50, gambas pil-pil (spicy hot prawns with garlic & chilli) €7.50 and tostas with guacamole and langostinos (6 small pieces of toasted bread each topped with guacamole and a langostino) €7.50.
There were four substantial sized triangulos with fine filo pastry ( a bit like samosas) and generously filled with spicy minced beef with a mild pepper sauce on the side. Have had gambas pil-pil many, many times in other restaurants but I have to say these were amongst the freshest and plumpest prawns and a substantial portion for such a reasonable price. When we reached the tostas, we were almost full up.
To round off the meal we chose 1 chocolate truffle which came with vanilla icecream and the price was an incredible €1 - yes just one Euro!
We had a bottle of Anta 10 Ribera del Duero Crianza red wine for €18.50 - an excellent price for this wine! The wine list had a good selection of wines available (our choice was around mid-price). The waiter was attentive and friendly. One aspect of the meal which was much appreciated by us was that the waiter and kitchen staged the delivery of the dishes one by one, rather than everything arriving at once!
Overall we cannot fault the experience. Incredible value for such a quality meal and we will be recommending this restaurant to our friends. Incidentally they offer a number of dishes which need 24 hours notice so we are definitely going back to try the Lamb Tajine and the Beef Couscous.
