They say the best things in life are worth making an effort for, and a small but select group of SoloAmigos didn’t hesitate to wend their way up to Jalón for lunch last Sunday. Ascending the winding road to Casa Susi, some of our intrepid adventurers felt sure they saw Sir Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tensing tackling the north face of the hill, such were the dizzy heights where this charming, friendly restaurant is located.
It was definitely worth the effort, though, as the restaurant is in a lovely setting and very rustic in style.
The group enjoyed food from the standard menu, but Casa Susi is also noted for specialising in Moroccan ‘Tagine’ dishes, named after the interesting earthenware pots in which they’re cooked and served.
Now that our brave explorers have tasted the excellent fare and enjoyed their experience, more of us will no doubt be tempted to follow their example in future.
Sunday’s group – all looking replete with good food and wine in these photographs – now say they’re contemplating a picnic at a remote peak in the Sierra Nevada mountain range for their next culinary adventure. Rumour has it they’ve already started shopping for the necessary ropes, pulleys and crampons to make the climb… ;o)
A successful outing and a well-deserved vote of thanks to Steve, who suggested the venue and organised the lunch.
