This is an innovative gastronomic proposal, El Papagayo is a superlative restaurant. This gourmet corner is located in a small and mysterious corridor, in the heart of the city of Córdoba, a place where the best things about gastronomy happen local. His team is composed of baristas, sommeliers , as well as his outstanding chef, among other services that make this gastronomic post among the best in the country.
This place works in a close relationship with local producers and artisans. El Papagayo is a cuisine of unique and happy moments. It is a space that from its architecture and interior design makes a clear difference with other proposals. The subtract is 2.30 wide by 36 meters long. It was an old corridor of servitude between the mansions of an apple that preserves brick walls dating from 1870 . An experience never lived before. Every detail, from design, tableware, ambient music and flavors, generate a very special microclimate. Set with selected works of art and a well-accomplished general aesthetic , it becomes a must-see poste.
“ El Papagayo was born more than five years ago, before settling in Azur Real. In a talk with architect Ernesto Bedmar, in Singapore, he told me that he had a somewhat strange property in the heart of Córdoba. This space began to take shape as they see it today,” says Javier, chef and head of space. A color fact: Dwell (an architecture and design portal in San Francisco, USA) chose El Papagayo as one of the 13 best-designed restaurants in the world.
“ We entrusted some works to artists and from that we generated a relationship with them and other people in the art world. And if you ask me what the secret is, I say that in addition to good planning in everything that is done in the restaurant , something very important is to work with people from other areas, because they give you a a different view of things,” says the head of the project.
The team captain is chef Javier Rodríguez , a young and talented entrepreneur who worked in many of the best restaurants in the world. He finished training abroad and today is in charge of this novel proposal , located in a unique architectural space, surrounded by unique works of art and overflowing gourmet passion.
Rodríguez's cuisine stands out for the textures, colors and flavors achieved in his dishes, and they are changing day by day. “ For now we focus on the product and on combining them in an original way. We always start from a main element and we are looking for others that accompany and provide textures, color and mainly flavor. Our dishes are simple, with two or three products per dish is enough, as long as everything is well executed.” One of the particularities of El Papagayo is that the chef and his team cook almost everything on a grill and wood-burning oven, which gives the dishes particular and original flavors .
In addition, another factor that distinguishes them in the Cordovan gastronomic market is the commercialization of a high-end coffee. At the beginning of the project, they acquired the best machine and coffee beans on the market. The team is very fan of this infusion that today, they come to offer to all its customers. They also make all the bakery and pastry in a homemade way for breakfast and snack time. While El Papagayo opens doors to the public later, from five in the morning every day they start the clay oven to knead and prepare the best delicacies. With a lot of work and dedication they managed to position themselves in the local market. Thus, they became one of the most coveted proposals in the province.
Have a meal at this outstanding Cordovan restaurant!
