A fantastic place! Oh, and it's one of the gay-friendly restaurants :D

I got here before the sunset and I just love the light in Rayuela! What a wonderful scene here on the 2nd floor

Their website has more pictures of the interior if you are interested :D

Rayuela was celebrating their 3rd anniversary in June. This post is about their special menu for this (and now they have the restaurant week menu! You should go try it if you like my pictures!!) This was the Amuse, "Yellow tomato gazpacho infused with saffron and Chilean carica sprinkled with garlic toasted casaba", whatever that means, it was DELICIOUS! Tasty and refreshing.

Ceviche of Erizo con Vieras, it was sea urchin and scallop ceviche with a delightful sauce.

This Caracol con Navajas was another great surprise to your taste bud. The lychee-coconut citrus sauce went so smoothly with the sliced conch and razor clams. ♥

I got to mention their homemade Pan De Yuca (Colombian Cheese Bread) with olive-infused butter on the side, the bread was freshly made of yucca flour, cheese, milk and butter, so rich and so moist that you wouldn't dare to not finish it!! (yeah.. I usually don't eat the bread in order to save my appetite)

Here is a closer look at the center of the Pan De Yuca, the smell of cheese.. and butter.. and ... (* ̄▽ ̄*)

alright, back to the courses, Surena Coquera, "Lemongrass-ginger coconut soup with shrimp, scallops, octopus and clams, sprinkled with tomatoes, cilantro and jalapeno" The picture said it all!

The Pato con Pera Salvaje, Breast of duck (Got to admit I couldn't tell it was duck breast..)

"Tamarind glazed short ribs served with foie gras infused polenta, and a double cooked egg. Topped with lobster chimichurri" The ribs were a little dry to me, but different people have different taste, you may find it taste good.

"Pan seared dorado with sweet potatoes puree and jumbo lump crab meat" They cooked the fish well! Even my bf who avoid fish as much as possible finished half of this!

Dessert, yes, the dessert! Don't you think that was too much?! Avocado custard garnished with poached tamarillo.

And the Chocolate pudding with Acai mousse & berries. The orange ones were the groundberries, ha! I recognized them!

It was really a great dinning experience and would like to come back for other dishes (≧▽≦)
