La Salita

Valencia, Spain

Sat within the city’s Ruzafa district, the exterior of La Salita is a well-preserved time capsule of Valencia’s picturesque past. What lies within this white-walled mansion is just as impressive. Inside, its dining room boasts high ceilings and pristine eggshell white walls, countered by colourful tiling and dried horticultural arrangements dangling from above. Its food echoes this sentiment too, as chef Begoña Rodrigo plays judiciously with presentation, often juxtaposing her technicoloured dishes against minimalistic white crockery. Courses across its multiple tasting menus pull influences from a global gastronomic palate, jumping from Korean-inspired parsnip carbonara with kimchi to its Mexican ‘taco’ dessert offering. Every weekend, the kitchen switches its name and identity to become L’Hort al Nú, where more traditional Valencian fare takes precedence. Expect croquetas, longaniza (cured local sausage) and olives and peppers, all executed from the kitchen with the same focus and merit as its weekday counterpart.
