CASA CATY, JALON Tel 660 832 838
Yummy Morrocan lamb
This small restaurant is located on Calle Santo Domingo looking onto Plaza Las Ocas in Jalon.
The owners have made maximum use of the available space to accommodate a veritable clutter of tables.
There are two menus del día priced at €13 and €16 and most of us opted for the former. The bread rolls were warm, the alioli fresh and for starters there was a selection of four tapas comprising stuffed peppers, meatballs, salad and fried liver with a particularly tasty sauce.
One of our group opted for the €16 menu and instead of the selection of tapas had a fabulous dish of grilled gambas.
Our host kindly traded up on the wines and an unbranded Albariño (€12.50) and a Faustino Crianza (€15) certainly added to enjoyment of the lunch.
For main course most of us went for Casa Caty´s speciality – shoulder of lamb cooked Morrocan style for four hours in an oven with honey and dates; delicious.
The remaining member had a rack of ribs which were very tender.
We skipped dessert and instead opted for coffees and our agreeable lunch including tip cost €24 p.p.
