some of the Scandinavian dishes
Lucia’s is a Scandinavian restaurant approaching the silver anniversary of their opening. Norwegian Lena, and Anders, who hails from Denmark, founded this eatery in 1990 to meet the increasing demand for this unique cuisine, not only from their own compatriots, but also diners from around the world. It was purely by accident that we found ourselves dining at Lucia’s, whilst attending a meeting of AIA group (Andalusia International Artists) to see if they could help promote the sculptures that my much better half creates.
Inevitable after the meeting, we joined them for lunch, and I was sufficiently impressed with the food that I have written this review.
Thankfully the Menu was in English as well as Danish so we could get an understanding of what each of the 25 Smørrebrød were made of. Incidentally, the more familiar Smorgasbord is the Swedish equivalent, and what they both mean is, a luncheon or supper buffet offering a variety of foods and dishes like hors d'oeuvres, hot and cold meats, smoked and pickled fish, cheeses, salads, and relishes usually served on a Rye bread. There are many more conventional starters, and meat & fish mains, from which I choose a Tenderloin Beef in a truly spectacular mushroom sauce. Chef Garry certainly knows how to pack a flavour punch. All the other dishes were nicely presented and devoured with relish (no pun intended)
