The Pick of Pego

 

This restaurant is located in a beautiful courtyard at 18. Calle Ramon & Cajal. There is an indoor restaurant as well around the courtyard which at one time was part of a street called Calle del Olmo. Olmo is Spanish for Elm and as there was an Elm tree there at one time this lead to the restaurant being named L´om. Nothing to do with Lombardy.

The setting is absolutely stunning and L´om has a menu del día priced at €12.50 but does not include any drinks.

We started with a flavoursome salad and our host selected a couple of great wines to accompany our meal. These were a Rueda called Jose Pariente (€19) and the famous Muga Rioja (€23), both delicious.

                    

Our starters included a pasta salad with shrimps and mussels, Cocas and Fideua and were all very much appreciated.  For main course we had pork cutlets which were rather disappointing and chewy.

                                    

However the overall atmosphere of L´om and the warm welcome and attention of our hostess Marie José, ensured we had a memorable and enjoyable lunch costing €26.96.

BUDDHA EYES TANDOORI,          PEGO        965088159

 ★★★★☆ 

The eyes have it!

This is the first time the club has visited Pego, a very Spanish town, largely untainted by foreign tourists. The Buddha Eyes Tandoori restaurant is located at C/San Rafael 12.

The owners of Buddha Eyes are from Nepal and we were warmly welcomed by mother and daughter.

Whilst studying the extensive menu we were served popadoms with delicious chutneys which we washed down with beers.

 

There is a menu del día  priced at €25.90 (including wine) for two people, but we all went á la carte starting with onion bhajis and meat samosas with salad. Really fresh and delicious.

 

 

The main course included lamb madras, chicken karahi and chicken tikka jalfre,  a mixed grill along with several side dishes including rice and two types of naan bread.

By this stage we switched to wine, a Ribero del Duero called Portia (€15).

 

All in all a delicious lunch which cost €27.34
