Carlos and Eduard are lifelong friends, and although they took different courses in their training a year and a half ago (Carlos with cooking and Eduard with engineering), they came together to form Boca Boca.
Boca Boca follows the concept of tapas, a gastronomy made for sharing, with influences from all of the places where Carlos has had the opportunity to train, and where he has lived for 12 years after he finished studying.
At night the place is transformed into a place where the signature cocktails are brought to the fire, and music and fun accompany everyone. You can order a shisha, a drink and dance.
In his menu we can find sea and mountain dishes, rice dishes and some great sweets. The rice, of which Carlos is very enthusiastic, are made with grains from Valencia, and they change every 3 months.
Some time ago they decided to incorporate cocktail pairings with the meal, which they no longer offer, but we would love for them to do again. We are convinced that if we ask, they will prepare it for us without any problem.
For lunch they served us a fried fish tapas with reinvented and untraditional basil, and mini oxtail bikinis with romesco that combine perfectly.
To continue, tuna tataki with sour apple, soy and honey. There is nothing more to say except that it was delicious, with a variety of flavors that we are not used to finding when we ask for tataki.
And finally, before arriving at dessert, the chef served the rice, of which he is a very big fan. Black rice with scallop, black garlic and saffron, cooked with lobster broth and albufera grain. Irresistible and very original. And finally the dessert – Oreo mousse with creamy biscuit María, which was simply the perfect ending.
