Casa Rosita,             Jesús Pobre       965756404

 ★★★☆☆ 

Mixed opinions

 Normally our group mark restaurants within a few points of each other but in the case of Casa Rosita the span was from  1 star to 5 stars. Fortunately these two mavericks were brought into line by the rest of us who awarded Rosita 3 stars.

          

Casa Rosita is to be found at 3 Calle Major in the centre of the delightful village of Jesús Pobre. The restaurant looks quite modest from the outside but once inside it develops into several dining areas including a patio at the rear which is where we had our lunch.

The menu del día is priced at a very competitive €10 for three courses, including a glass of wine. Our host selected a Rueda Verdejo called Gran Cardiel and for red Nuviana Tinto, both priced at €13 and enjoyable.

                                         

In fact it is possible to interchange dishes from the first course selection with those from the main courses, so some of our group had bacon and eggs as a starter and others as a main course. Most of us had Favada for our starter, a class of a soup with beans, basic but good.

       

The main courses selected were chicken with mushroom sauce, cod croquettes, lomo a la plancha, and kidneys cooked Jerez style. Whilst the food was simple, it was wholesome and tasty.

The service was a bit erratic and we were ushered out of Casa Rosita at just 15.45.

Together with desserts and/or coffees and brandies our visit to Jesús Pobre cost €18.25 p.p.

RESTAURANTE EL SEQUER,            JESUS POBRE       966454092

 ★★★☆☆ 

Succour from El Sequer

Slotted into the rows of townhouses in the Calle Mayor, this very Spanish restaurant has an unobtrusive entrance which completely belies the interior within. The bar leads through to an ample and comfortably appointed dining area and also onto an extensive open terrace at the back for those who prefer “al fresco” dining.

The menu del día costs just €10 for three courses and a half bottle of house wine. For starters, two of our group chose “salteado de alcachofas y bacon” a sautéd mix of artichokes, bacon and onion, a typical Spanish dish. The rest of us chose the paella which was served in  generous portions. It was very good quality and would rate highly in any specialist paella restaurant.

For main course we tucked into wild boar oven cooked stew, oven-cooked rabbit, chicken with mushroom sauce and “fritura de pescadito” – deep fried little fish. All tasty and served in substantial portions.

The selection of desserts were tiramisu, almond tart, bilberry cheesecake, flan or ice cream; with the exception of the ice cream all homemade. The house wines were both called Monte Segária and were from Alicante; our host kindly agreed to trade up for an additional red – Darsena (€12) from Ribero del Duero.

All in all, an exceedingly good value lunch in pleasant surroundings, tucked away in the narrow high street of Jesus Pobre. Well worth a visit. Including coffees and brandies a modest €13.84 p.p.
