Recently we were invited to La Cala by good friends and treated to a sensational tapestry of colours and taste.
I love these olives.

Anchovies on zucchini with caramelised onion spread on puffs.
Jamón Ibérico “de Bellota”

Shrimp cappacio with pretty flowers like a garden.
Carabinero Prawn Carpaccio whit ceps
Carabinero olive oil and mushroom ceps
annelloni, a traditional cylinder pasta stuffed with shredded beef and pork, doused with truffle cream.” (Source: rerg below). I love this dish and didnt think the meat was dry.
Look at the fresh rosemary sprigs with green stems. I asked for fresh ones to bring home to propagate. Unfortunately no one took me seriously.
Crispy thin skin and moist meat. I am not a pork fan, especially those that have a strong taste.
The chef with his creation, cutting the piglet with 2 plates.
Melon braised with beetroot and crushed garlic to clean your pallette.
Lemon and cavap
Very good dessert, a bit of alcohol with crushed ice.
Absolutely delicious food, pricey. The service staff were attentive but they are not trained to explain the dishes, unless asked. Even then, they just rattled off the names.
I later found this website review with some names of the food as I didnt get to see the menu.
