Having recently visited the lovely small white town of Cazalla de la Sierra to stay in the very charming and unique El Palacio de San Benito we arrived early to explore the town and have lunch before checking in. To our very pleasant surprise we stumbled across Restaurant Agustina and both hubby and I immediately knew we’d found our lunch spot, even before we’d noticed the Bib Gourmand seal of approval.
A quick glance and the menu and we sat ourselves down opposite the restaurant on a charming plaza with a road between us, if there’s a choice of sitting outside (in the shade) we do. I didn’t even go inside the restaurant, not even for a nose, very unlike and remiss of me.
It was to be a light lunch as it was early for us which made the mouth-watering menu choosing quite tricky and not very speedy. Into our second beer I’d narrowed it down to two starters and hubby chose a non-written choice of Pork Loin with a touch of Mustard.
I only photographed mine! The top photo a starter – Atun Marinada en ‘Algo Picantito’ con ensalada de alga ‘wacame’ y sesame and the second a dish to share – Ensalada de Codorniz en Escabeche con Vinagreta de jinibre.
A very edible lunch with some interesting dishes, it got me thinking about how many and where the other Bib Gourmand restaurants are in Andalucia and so here is the Bib Gourmand list and I’ll definitely be looking out for some of these on my travels, and adding a comment as I tick them off!
