Memorable

Dracula´s Memories opened this Spring and to date only operates in the evenings, however the owners decided to open for our Friday lunch group as a favour. The chef, a Romanian lady called Alina, was formally chef in the Pedramala restaurant and so has serious credentials.

The restaurant is located close to the Post Office on Avenida Juan Carlos in Jalon and with the exception of a slightly gruesome corner, the décor is elegant.

We were presented with a menu del día priced at €20 not including drinks. The starter was an attractively presented selection of tapas – deep fried camembert and deep fried mushrooms, freshly pressed tomato on toast and a salad of vegetables and tiny prawns.

Our host provided a Rueda Verdejo (€12) called Analivia (curiously the latin name for the River Liffey) and a Ribero del Duero crianza (€15) called Romantica, both very acceptable.DRACULA´S MEMORIES 002

 

 

For main course the choice was between fillets of sole or pork schnitzel Transylvania style, accompanied by chips that were a little soggy.DRACULA´S MEMORIES 005

Our desserts were apple pie and cheesecake. We rounded off our enjoyable lunch with coffees and brandies for a cost p.p. of just over €35. Let´s hope Dracula´s Memories will be open for lunch on a regular basis before long…
