The good news is that the Celler de Can Roca restaurant, one which has received unanymous acclaim for a longtime, finally achieved the third star in the guide; this was a huge clamour and it seems justice has been done. This way, Can Roca joins six other Spanish restaurants with three stars: Arzak (Juan María Arzak), Can Fabes (Santi Santamaría), El Bulli (Ferrán Adriá), Martín Berasategui (Martín Berasategui), Sant Pau (Carme Ruscalleda) and Akelarre (Pedro Subijana).
Living in Andalucía, I was happy to know that restaurant Alejandro in Roquetas de Mar was also awarded one star, so I look forward to visit that place in the near future. In the mean time, I hope that a personal, local favourite in my city, Córdoba, will soon achieve the same status: I am speaking about Restaurant El Choco, whose creative kitchen only needs a bit of additional effort and a better hall in order to get full shine. And let me add another favourite of mine, restaurant El Alma, a place for enjoying red tuna and good company, good wines, and excellent food. Finally, traditional food from Córdoba is perfectly shown in restaurant Taberna Pepe de la Judería.
