Fuel Brasserie - Nuevo Andalucía
by Morris Bishop
(San Pedro de Alcantara)
We arrive just as a torrential rain storm had ended to find Barman Sven mopping up the stairs leading up to Fuel. Open for 18 months, this eatery has a very tastefully decorated dining room, with a black and White theme, seating some 65 inside and a further 65 on the delightful terrace overlooking the Los Naranjos golf course and the La Concha mountain beyond. Nicely lit, with simple but pleasing table setting’s created a good first impression. An elegantly appointed, newly opened cocktail bar is adjacent, serving a variety of snacks, burgers, and dishes to share.
Although they have a ‘light’ lunch set menu it was somewhat limited and we opted to choose from the more expansive A’ La carte menu: Prawn PilPil followed by a dish called ‘Monkfish Scampi’ which turned out to be a delicious dish of deep fried breaded Monkfish goujons with a Watercress salad and Tartare sauce, and for me, purely because I had never tried this before, Duck Bolognese which was a Duck Ragu in Tagliatelle, with garlic bread crumbs, and parmesan shavings, which although delightful was a little dry until I added some of their home made tomato Salsa that brought the dish alive. We finish with a very sweet Tarte Tatin served with caramel sauce and salted caramel ice cream, the presentation of which was most unusual.
Gobinda, the talented Nepalese head Chef, working to the menus designed by consultant Michelin stared chef Clive Dixon, certainly knows how to please his customers. Service from our waitress Yarna was informative, caring, friendly and yet efficient. I talked to manager Mathew about the somewhat misleading title of ‘Monkfish Scampi’, explaining that Scampi is a ‘Sea food’ and not a ‘type’ description for a dish, and how much more we would have enjoyed our meal had it been served on hot plates, strange because there are already 4 dish heaters lamps on the pass, so they are half way there. Hopefully he may take these small critiques on board, but suffice it to say we were sufficiently impressed with Fuel to be planning our next visit!
