The city's most exciting restaurant, which renewed its Michelin star in 2013, El Choco has renowned chef Kisko Garcia at the helm whipping up innovative dishes with a twist of traditional favorites such as cochinillo crujiente con crema de ajos y naranjas (crispy suckling pig with cream of garlic and oranges) and atún fresco de Almadraba que quiso ser cerdo ibérico (traditionally-caught fresh tuna that wished it were an Iberian pig—cooked in pork stock
and roasted on an oak log fire). The caldo blanco de Sierra Morena (creamy stock with potatoes and ham) is a highly-acclaimed starter. The restaurant has a minimalist interior, with charcoal-color walls and glossy parquet floors. El Choco is outside the city center to the east and not easy to find, so take a taxi.
