CASA ALELUYA, JALON 966480030
Still going strong
Casa Aleluya is a landmark bar and restaurant in Jalon where the original owner used to entertain customers by pouring wine from a bottle over his forehead and let gravity move it down over his face and into his mouth.
The restaurant is located opposite the new visitors centre for tourists near where the weekly rastro takes place. The precise address is Avd. Juan Carlos 1, 51 but this street name is scheduled to be changed in the months to come.
Our table was located in the patio area at the back of the building and on our way there we passed the new microbrewery that has recently produced an award winning beer.
We decided to have a selection of tapas ranging in price from €2 up to €6.50 per dish. These included very tasty ham and cheese pieces, some rather bland prawns, chicken wings, smoked liver meatballs and patatas bravas.
Our host chose the reliable Rueda Verdejo from Darsena and a Rioja called El Niño de Campillo – both pleasant. We opted not to have desserts but instead sampled the award winning beer and very good it was too!
Together with coffees and chopitos our pleasant tapas lunch cost €22 p.p.
