Where to Go if You Have Ceviche cravings?

 

Less than half a mile from Bank station Coya Angel Court is an oasis of deep-purple striped pillows and very instramable electric blue wall. So when day are rainy and market are rough, Coya great Pisco Cocktails and cool tunes should get you on dinner mode.

 

With almost twice as many starters/shares as mains on the menu Coya delivers top quality small dishes to be shared amongst guests. A perfect opportunity to try the refined cuisine of this Peruvian/Japanese style restaurant. Although personally I tend to prefer slightly tangier ceviche, the quality is excellent, but the one to hit is the Octopus. Also a recommendation not to be missed is the “Corazón Tradicional”, perfect with the “Patatas Bravas”.

 

But since you’re reading a wine blog let’s get to the part that you’re looking for: the wine. You definitely won’t be disappointed with the wine list. First positive point is that it’s not huge, with about 120 wines, it’s diverse enough to match all tastes, budget and dishes, but you don’t feel like you’re going through a 1990’s directory. The second good point – it is very fairly priced. With over 60% of the wines under £70, it almost feels that Coya reverse engineered the Banks lunch/dinner allowances when creating the wine list, which is a great news for every wine lover. Even on the days where you’ve been fleeced by the market, you will still find something like the “Susana Balbo Crios, Torrontes”, which 2016 vintage was rated about 91, for £30. But we went ahead with the “Bodegas Amaren”, a barrel fermented white rioja, which was Wine Picker top recommendation for “Ceviche” + “Spicy Salmon”, which Sarah, the sommelier, highly recommended for our dish selection. Such a versatile wine with a good acidity and concentration with matched most dishes. For the excellent Corazon Traditional we were recommended a glass of Carmenere, which had the perfect juicy fruitiness, acidity and spiciness to match the dish. The Mousse de coco was matched with something rather unexpected the “Urakasumi Umeshu Plum Sake” an excellent dessert option for medium sweet desserts and the “Chocolate Fundido” was paired with the rich “Zuccardi Malamado Fortified Malbec”.

Let’s not close this post without praising the excellent service, very knowledgeable, with excellent advice. They really craft the experience in a friendly atmosphere without being overwhelming.

 
So if you’re unsure about the 2018 bonuses, but still looking for a chic and modern restaurant near you with an excellent wine list, look no further and book a table at Coya. Oh, one advice, don’t try to speak Spanish if you’re not native (yep I heard it), this is not a tapas bar in Valencia.

Hang on a second… what about the cost of labor, barrels (if barrel aged), bottles, bottling, labelling, corks…marketing?
I clicked on this to read an article on the costs associated with making a good wine vs mass produced, and your premise is site and reputation/experience of the winemaker?
