25 April : Menu del Dia €10

Hotel Rural los Caños de la Alcaiceria

delicately chopped tomato, cucumber and onion salad tossed in vinaigrette served with fresh bread

thick soup flavoured with saffron with chunks of lamb that melted in the mouth and perfectly cooked potato just on the verge of falling apart.

fresh fillets of hake pan fried in the lightest of batter with golden chips

home made flan that made me feel a bit tearful because it was so delicious.

a glass of chilled beer to start and a small cup of strong coffee to finish.

We felt quite embarrassed when we got the bill - 20 Euros for 2 seemed far, far too little for such a feast but we thanked the owner and promised to return. Outside we waited for a large flock of goats to cross the road, their bells rattling and the goatherd flicking his stick to encourage stragglers though the gate and then we set off for the road to Granada.


  1. must have been around two hundred goats on the move. No mention of any goat on the menu del dia fortunately. Stonking deal - tipped generously but still felt undercooked so to speak.

    Hasta la vista for sure

  2. Stop! I haven't had breakfast yet...

    1. Trust me - if you had eaten this for breakfast you would have had to go back to bed to recover.

  4. Had to eat chocolate after reading this.

    1. I am ashamed to be leading you astray.


Thank you! I love reading your comments and even though I don't always have time to reply I am really grateful to every one who joins in the conversation.
