Tapas, one of Spain's most renowned delicacies, is a must-try when visiting a Spanish restaurant. When it comes to croquettes, Kulto brings a unique twist to this classic dish. While their croquettes have a satisfying crunch, the fillings can be hit or miss, providing an interesting surprise with each bite.

For those seeking a creamy indulgence, the Jamon Iberico is a wholesome and silky option, while the Special 'Chilli Crab Sauce' croquettes come with a pleasantly tangy sauce. However, they may not leave a lasting impression.

When it comes to seafood, the Octopus "Galician Style" at Kulto elicits mixed emotions. On one hand, the octopus is remarkably tender and devoid of any chewiness. However, it lacks a certain richness and smoky flavor that typically accompanies well-charred edges. The mashed potatoes served alongside fail to enhance the overall experience.

Moving on to the meat section, the Charcoal Lamb Racks stand out. Though perfectly cooked in terms of texture, the lamb may carry a slightly gamey aroma that not everyone appreciates. The herbaceous sauce helps balance out the flavor, but it still falls short of being the most impressive lamb dish. On the other hand, the caramelized baby onions served as a side dish are stupendously sumptuous.

One would expect Kulto's signature dish, the Seafood Paella, to be a standout. Unfortunately, it falls short of expectations. The lack of crusty goodness in the paella and the undercooked, firm texture disappoint. The flavor also fails to deliver the deep oceanic richness one would anticipate.

When it comes to desserts, the Whisky Cake with Almonds seems slightly lackluster. Though it features almonds embedded on top, the addition of Nikka Whiskey leaves the cake soggy, without any attempt to enhance the flavors. The result is an acerbic and unbalanced experience.

However, amidst the highs and lows, the Kulto Cheesecake shines as the saving grace. With its molten center, it exudes a sense of elegance. While it may not be as rich or complex as other heavyweights, a scoop of tangy raspberry sorbet adds a delightful contrast.

In their pursuit of "Spanish Culinary Elevation," Kulto offers a refined take on traditional Tapas with interesting twists. The restaurant maintains a simple, earnest, and unostentatious atmosphere. However, the hype surrounding their food, especially the paella, might be somewhat exaggerated. It is possible that our visit coincided with an off-day, but considering the reputation of a restaurant like Kulto, one would expect a consistently high standard.
