The highest quality beef from Galicia in the Northwest of Spain. Our Galician beef range comes from retired Frisona dairy cows between 6 and 8 years old. This type of ageing allows more natural grass-fed marbling of the beef. These older cows are chubbier animals, have a higher percentage fat content and as such have more marbling, giving these beef steaks a distinct and unique flavour. Originating in the Basque Country and often referred to as Txuleton or Basque Cider House Steak after a tradition of Basque farmers exchanging beef for cider at the Cider Houses.
Txuleton-Galician prime rib of beef for two (1kg) with fries, marinated piquillo peppers and a green salad with a cider dressing
Magro- Bavette of Galcian beef with fries, marinated piquillo peppers and a green salad with a cider dressing
Cordera- Local lamb shoulder slowly cooked over our fire- pit served with judion butter beans, potatoes, onions, peppers and garlic.
Arroz- Spanish rice, summer vegetables, herbs and wine with saffron topped with burnt aubergines and tahini
Bacalao- A Basque specialty – salt cod, potatoes, tomatoes and peppers gently cooked together till rich and delicious.
Dessert – churros e chocolate
Natural Basque Cider made from the blend of selected wild apples.Kupela which means “barrel” is where the natural fermentation of the apple must transform the sugar into alcohol which results into a fresh and fruity cider made only from natural apples.. It should be poured from about 30cm in height with a special cider pourer called ‘escanciador’, into a wide, tumbler thin glass; this way the bubbles of carbon dioxide are released, creating texture whilst releasing the aromas and qualities of the cider.
Kupela Basque Cider, 6% 75cl ideal to share (dry)
Kupela Sparkling Basque Cider, 4% 33cl (medium)
