Dine like God in La Luz de Candela, Málaga. :) / Speisen wie Gott in La Luz de Candela, Málaga. :)


English


A special highlight of our Málaga vacation was the visit to the La Luz de Candela, a gourmet restaurant where excellent Mediterranean dishes are created from local products.

La Luz de Candela offers a quiet, cozy atmosphere, where the owners themselves serve the meals in an extremely friendly and courteous manner.
In this "slow food" restaurant (self-description - I like this subtle protest against our fast-moving times ...) everything is centered around relishing one's food, divided into several small but delicious portions - and as you will see right away, we were by no means disappointed:

Ein besonderes Highlight unseres Málaga-Urlaubs war der Besuch des La Luz de Candela, ein Feinschmeckerrestaurant, wo aus lokalen Produkten ganz hervorragende mediterrane Gerichte kreiert werden.

La Luz de Candela bietet eine ruhige, gemütliche Atmosphäre, wobei die Inhaber selbst äußerst freundlich und zuvorkommend die Mahlzeiten servieren.
In diesem "slow food"-Restaurant (Selbstbezeichnung - mir gefällt dieser subtile Protest gegen unsere schnelllebige Zeit ...) dreht sich alles darum, sein Essen, aufgeteilt in mehrere kleine aber köstliche Portionen, wirklich zu genießen - und wie ihr gleich sehen könnt, wurden wir keineswegs enttäuscht:


As drinks we chose two delicious tasting sweet wines. Als Getränke wählten wir zwei köstlich schmeckende süße Weine.

Potatoes with a tasty green sauce. Kartoffeln mit einer schmackhaften grünen Soße.


Soup of the day. Suppe des Tages.

After the soup a very fresh and yummy tasting codfish salad was served. Nach der Suppe wurde ein sehr frischer und lecker schmeckender Kabeljau-Salat serviert.


Ratatouille with octopus that tasted similar like well fried steak. Ratatouille mit Oktopus, der fast wie gut gebratenes Steak schmeckte.

Rump steak slices with rocket salad, Manchego cheese, peppers and red onions: just delicious! Rumpsteak-Scheiben mit Rucola-Salat, Manchego-Käse, Paprika und roten Zwiebeln: Einfach lecker!

Finally a small but very yummy dessert composed of different components. Zum Abschluss ein kleiner aber feiner Nachtisch aus verschiedenen Komponenten.

As a bonus, together with the bill we got a little bit of sweet Málaga wine. Zusammen mit der Rechnung gab es als kleinen Bonus noch etwas süßen Málaga-Wein.

Slow Food war mit zwar ein Begriff, ich wusste aber nicht, dass dahinter eine Bewegung steht, deren Philosophie sehr überzeugend ist:

Wir widersetzen uns der Standardisierung von Geschmack und Esskultur, der uneingeschränkten Macht der multinationalen Lebensmittelindustrie und der industriellen Landwirtschaft.

und die sich für den Zugang zu guten, sauberen und fairen Lebensmitteln für alle einsetzt.

Sehr schöne Aufnahmen, sie könnten aus einem Feinschmeckermagazin stammen.

although i am not a fan of gourmet cuisine as i prefer larger portions of food i can agree that the presentation is awesome. Also they look delicious!

My question is this: Did you get full after you eat all of these or you had still room for more? :P

17.09.2019 05:34

Lets say I felt satisfied and happy after eating there. :)
Of course there were places where I have eaten more (concerning quantity).

Well, I think if you don't share with your partner... means, if you take the complete course of dinner ==>like the classic dinner arrangement in Eurepean culture, then you would definitely feel full enough.
The 3-Course dinner each is enough for us, because we both are small people LOL.
however the standard arrangement would likely be 6-course dinner, that's the original suggestion at least. Especially if you share the dishes with your partner, and perhaps if you have the typical body of northern Eurepeans (at least 175 cm tall ^^) and have a big appetite.
Surely it would need us to dig our wallet rather deep, however this is what we call it "enjoying a dinner and not only to fill in the stomach." :-D.
Don't get me wrong please... I don't mean to say that making stomach full is bad or not classy or so...
but there is simply a moment where we would like to just enjoy life and spoil our tongue and therefore agree to spend more for it ^
^.
That's why we rented an apartment so that I can cook for the half of the vacation, then for another few days we can enjoy a standard eating out, so that we have enough budget to be able to spoil our tongue with some real good cuisines too ^_^.
It's just like some other people who might prefer to pay more for a designer shoes or dresses for example, in our case we prefer to spoil our tongue hahaha.
This restaurant is not a Michelin standard Restaurant which require the guest to dress up formally nor have such an ambience like a star restaurant...but it offers dishes with relatively equal standard like those fancy restaurant. And the fact that they don't have a set up of a fancy restaurant, we can enjoy gourmet dishes with rather sensible price.
I mean, it's indeed pricey compare to other standard restaurant there, but for the kind of dishes that we enjoy there... their price is considered good, not too high.
I love cooking my self, so I know the price range of the ingredients, added up with the other relevant expenses (like gas/electricity, water, spices, etc) and naturally the effort one must bring out to make such dishes served there plus the service cost... that's enough reason for me to conclude that it's definitely not overpriced.
So, yes, true... it really depends on what the customers expect for a dinner :).

i can't argue with that! I completely agree with your logic and ofc sometimes or as many times as you want you can spoil yourself either that's called a gourmet dish, a fancy dinner, a designer's outfit! As i said the presentation looks great and everything look delicious!

I am a small person too :P (1 65) smaller than the average European but maybe our appetite for larger qualities is a cultural thing. I am from Greece and we tend to merge taste with big quantities :P

Hahaha.. I can imagine that. I love Greek cuisine too. Moussaka, Souvlaki, tomato rice, Feta cheese ...^:).
We have been to Kreta few years back and I am actually still wishing to visit the mainland. I want to see Athen...
This is reall not flattery, but Greece was indeed my dream land to visit when I was a child, cos I love mythology :-D.

"Dine like God" - I absolutely agree with your title!

Very great review and good photos!  All of the foods look very delicious.  I especially like the "Ratatouille with octopus" which looks beautiful and yummy.   The mini dessert has a very cute style, I also love this.  

Thanks so much for sharing.  These make me feel hungry now.  ;D

Yes, I also noticed that it is not so easy, because light conditions in restaurants are not always the best for taking pictures.

Nice photos! I thought I saw Spanish food in the preview. Was the sopa del día a cream of squash soup? I like the name of the restaurant, too.

Málaga is a nice city, although I didn't visit as often as I wouldl ike. Did you explore the province abit? Ronda, the small city I lived in for awhile, is fairly close and well worth a see if you get the chance.

17.09.2019 16:29

This time, we didn't explore the province ... our vacation was about giving our little daughter a nice experience of the many diverse impressions a vivid Spanish city like Málaga has to offer, and letting her play at the beach. :)

I don't know what exactly were the ingredients of the soup, but it was warm and tasted much milder than gazpacho. Maybe, beside other vegetables, it contained traces of pumpkin.

Well, exploring Málaga and spending time on the beach does sound pretty fun!

There was a place I frequented in Ronda, that had amazing cream soups. They are pretty popular. A favorite of mine was a cream of carrot soup, although cream of red pepper was amazing as well :-) Have you tried salmorejo? It's sort of like gazpacho's big brother and is much more filling.

18.09.2019 03:00

Have you tried salmorejo?

I tried it, as we have Spanish friends, who already showed us many different kinds of dishes, but not during this vacation.

Das Essen sieht wirklich sehr lecker aus.
Ich finde es spannend, ein Land auch durch das typische
Essen kennenzulernen.
Die verschiedenen Geschmacksrichtungen und die
Kombination verschiedener Beilagen ist oft beeindruckend.
Danke für deinen schönen Artikel.
Viele Grüße.
