Taberna Moderna is located deep in the touristy downtown, but don't mistake it for any tourist trap. It is a cool place where ingredients are of top quality; the Iberian cuisine conquered us from day one. Every dish is made for sharing – plates are thus all placed at the centre of the table – and they include fried “rotos” eggs with “gulas” eels and shrimp, Galician-style octopus, cuttlefish rice, Galician beef entrecôte (served almost row) and slow-cooked Iberian carrillera. Instead of wine, try drinking gin with your dinner.
