For the second time this week we went out to a restaurant 🍽🍷🍺 It was a spontaneous decision! Having the possibility again -after 9 weeks of lockdown- to go for dinner spontaneously almost made me cry. I didn’t realise how much I missed it until we did it last night.
So. Dinner in our local restaurant in Sayalonga. Have you been to @aytosayalonga ? If not put it in your list. It’s beautiful. A tiny white washed village with around 4000 inhabitants, 8 kilometres from the coast. A beautiful scenic road brings you there. Sayalonga is the home of Nispero, a delightful, underrated fruit, known in English as 'the Loquat'.
The center is a market place with 2 restaurants. Jocavi is still closed, while Meson Morisco is open.
📌As no printed menus are allowed, the waiter brought a tablet with 2 gloves for us to tap on the tablet and check the menu. That’s another idea, instead of using QR code stickers, which we had seen in the Chiringuito BereBere on Wednesday.
We opted for our favourite dish: steaks 🥩 on a hot stone with salad and fries. 😋 It was delicious. I love the hot stones just because you do the steak exactly the way you want it. Medium? Well done? You decide.
The atmosphere was still a bit quite. Half of the tables were occupied, with lots of Spanish people having drinks only. The waiter Rafael - usually a talkative nice chap - seemed a bit sad and quite. Because of the entire situation, we were guessing 😔
We enjoyed our night out! We enjoyed our spontaneous decision. We enjoyed supporting our local community. We would like to encourage you to support your local, they need us now more than ever 💓 Next on our list is Restaurant Casa Marie - the 3rd restaurant in Sayalonga
