Day 5 of the 12 Days of PXmas sees us looking at 5 of our favourite places to eat in Montilla-Moriles.
An added bonus of these establishments is that they either have their own in house bodegas serving wines or house wines produced for them complimenting the best of the region’s cuisine.
In no particular order: –
Taberna Los Lagares
Our memorable first lunch with Rafa and Alberto in Montilla in September 2014 was held here. They specialise in rice dishes and barbequed meats. We have returned several times. Always a good sign.
Restaurante Los Arcos
Inma Luque introduced us to three very traditional Cordoban dishes for the first time in May 2016 – Flamenquin (roulade of pork loin and jamón that is breaded and fried), Salmorejo (cold soup made from pureed tomatoes, bread, oil and garlic) and Berenjenas con Miel (fried aubergines with cane honey)
And once again Inma Luque came up trumps…. Taberna Bolerno in May 2016 and it is another we have to returned several times since. Thanks to the owner Carlos we have been privileged to try some of the most memorable wines from Montilla-Moriles along with some fantastic food.
Restaurante Las Camachas
Probably the most famous restaurant in Montilla, this has something for everyone
Restaurante La Casona
This is the only restaurant outside of Montilla in our list located 2 minutes walk down from Bodegas Toro Albala in Aguilar de la Frontera.
Erik can particularly recommend the Chuleta de Cordero (Lamb Chops)
This is just a taster of what we have experienced to date. There are so many more we are looking forward to discovering in the future.
