Asado Restaurant is located in Königsforst, a forest and nature reserve area situated in the outskirts of the city of Cologne in Porz. It takes approximately 20 minutes drive, without traffic though, to get here from the city centre. You definitely need a car to get to this place.
Personally, I welcome the change of scenery, as well as the cuisine. The trees, the green setting and the fresh air helps in the de-stressing our work-polluted minds. German food also isn't the best there is out there so I cannot turn down a suggestion of a tapas evening.
I love, love, love tapas. I need to go back to Spain to eat loads of tapas!
Having said that, we settled for a mix tapas platter as the main dish on the table for the evening. The platter consists of shrimps with garlic (Gambas al Ajillo), mushroom buttons with garlic (Champinones al Ajillo), Manchego cheese, meatballs in tomato sauce (Albondigas), anchovies in vinegar (Boquerones), olives and Jamon Serrano.
In addition, we ordered chicken drumsticks in tomato sauce and paprika, baked goat's cheese with fresh figs (Queso de Cabra con Higos) and Patatas Bravas with spicy sauce.
For dessert we shared a Crema Catalana. To seal the evening to a close, we had some coffee.
We truly enjoyed the food here and the most popular dish for the evening was the baked goat's cheese with figs. We all went totally gaga over this. However, my usual favourites will always remain the shrimps and the anchovies. I will always be a seafood gal.
It was a bit cold to be sitting outside in the evening so we grabbed a table inside.
Patatas Bravas with the spicy sauce and a Paulaner. I had a chilled white wine.
