Mediterranean La Cocina

Nestled in Gubei's Pearl City, La Cocina provides an intimate, laidback
setting for fuss-free meals out with friends.
Simple white and brown checkered decor lends a European atmosphere to this
A small staff, headed by a considerate, English-speaking manager, serves up
light tapas (RMB12-25), soup and main courses (RMB30-150). Calderetadecordero
Lamb, Musakhkahan Chicken Wraps and many other specialties populate the menu,
yet despite the fancy names and helpful comments from the chef, some of the
dishes' flavors ultimately lack character.
Nonetheless, try the tasty tortilla Espaniola Omelet (RMB12) and
garlic-flavored Spaghetti Pomodoro (RMB40).
Though La Cocina falls a bit short of its name, which means 'the kitchen',
its attractive prices and comfortable surroundings make for an affordable night
