When in Aracena we usually come here for at least one lunch or dinner. This visit sadly, we didn't have time. But the food is rather good, nothing fancy just local dishes cooked in a traditional way. My Husband orders steak if its on the menu and I usually order a lamb dish which is a bit like a hotpot. Jose is an expert on wild mushrooms so anything with them in it is bound to be good.
This time we were passing by and surprised and happy to find Jose's little bar next door open so in we went (we have been coming to Aracena for many years and this is only the second time - ever, that we've seen the bar open)
The bar is a strange yet charming little place - full of what could be described as nick nacks, bric a brac and other useless rusty old items such as catapults, goat bells and wooden bird cages....all displayed with loving care and a price ticket attached to each one.
We ordered a plate of the best Jamon and I tried to make conversation with Jose but my Spanish is as awful as his English so a few glasses of Fino later we bade farewell.
If Jose's bar is open - do go in, you may not get another chance.
