Bring a little taste of Spain closer to your doorstep

There are plenty of Spanish restaurants in Edinburgh but if you want an authentic Catalan meal, Casa de Mara is the place to go.

To start, we enjoyed melt-in-your-mouth croquettes and gooey-centred truita de patates (potato tortilla), while
the calamars farcits (squid fi lled with prawns, squid, egg and almonds) was a personal favourite.

The comforting main course – escudella de carn d’olla (chicken meatballs, stock, chickpeas and pasta) – was rounded off with a silky crema catalana.
