I love it when a plan comes together! This Día de Andalucia weekend two more lovely places have joined our quest for World Domination! In the Montes de Málaga, the famous Venta Galwey: it used to be a coaching inn, as far back as 1884. Imagine that… They have roaring fires and solid Spanish dishes like wild boar, venison and, of course, home made flan. Yummmm. The views towards the mountains are stunning. Venta Galwey, Ctra. los Montes, Venta Galeway s/n. 29013
On the road to Riogordo from Benamargosa you will find Casa Ortega. If you ever mention you are on your way there to someone local they are bound to ask you ‘are you having the lamb?’. Because you should. (apparently, I never tried it myself as I don’t eat meat). Alternatively, they do an AMAZING Gazpachuelo, a traditional Malagueño soup, not to be confused with gazpacho. Gazpachuelo is hot and filled with cod and potatoes and mayonaise. Iknow. Sounds weird, tastes divine. Anyway, the owners are lovely, great terrace, and now they have great beer as well. What are you waiting for???
