An authentic paella

Really spectacular! The paella we had that prepared for us by Jose Maria really tasted like Valencian paella. Cooked on firewood with quality ingredients, snails, a touch of rosemary and socarrat (the slightly burned crust of rice on the bottom of the Paella pan), it’s been a while long since we’ve had paella, authentic paella.

Perfect, the friendly service, the surroundings, the town, the food, the wine ... And if you want to sleep over, Jose Maria can offer you two cosy double rooms. For dinner we had chops, embutidos (Spanish sausage) and grilled rabbit, cooked just right, with aioli, finger licking good. The next day, we really did treat ourselves with a zarzuela prepared for us in a clay pot that we gave a good account of. The desserts were delicious, a tray of various homemade puddings, a seasonal fresh fruit fountain, in short, worth repeating.

30 years running the business ... and it shows

One Sunday in June we decided to visit the Sierra de Espadán, declared a Natural Park in Valencia, we went to Almedíjar, which is 8 km from Segovia. On the same road that goes through Almedíjar and continues on to Aín is the restaurant Jocar, on the outskirts of town. It is a villa with a pool, terraces and a small comfortable lounge.

Run by a charming couple from Valencia, Jose Maria and Lola have run the business for over 30 years and it shows. Their specialties are their rice’s cooked over firewood, all kinds of paella, grilled meats and embutidos (Spanish sausage), grilled rabbit, rabbit with snails and tomato, zarzuela, olla almedijana (Almedíjar hotpot). In summary, a variety of starters and main courses that do disappoint any customer.
