We had a very short stay in Valencia but were determined to get some good food.
We found Vino Tinto by passing by, at 3pm (yes in Valencia lunch is between 2 and 4 pm) it was packed even on a tuesday.
The restaurant has very high ceilings with and a wonderful old wooden floor. For the rest it is pretty and modern interior. The team is pretty young as most of the clients (as far as I can see).
There is a very interesting set lunch for a good price, but we prefer to go for tapas and raciones a compartir (dishes to share).
We ordered El huevo, Papas Arrugás con Mojo Picón, Pincho de solomillo con foie y cebollas caramelizadas and Mini hamburguesas de Buey.
Unfortunaltely, I did not take the picture of the El huevo, it tasted so good …
It is a foam of potato served with a raw egg yolk and splitters of black truffles.
When you get it you just mixed everything and enjoy… (I found a recipe for that… will be trying soon).
Papas Arrugás con Mojo Picón is more a speciality from the Canary Islands, potatoes cooked in salt with a spicy sauce with enough garlic. It was not really spicy but the taste was great.
Pincho de Solomillo con foie y cebolla caramelizada is a toasted bread slice with a small pork steak, some seared foie gras on top and caramelized onions.
Pinchos are tapas served on a sliced of bread and can be found all over Spain.
According the sounds of my boyfriend, must have tasted divine….
Last but not least, the mini hamburgesas de buey. Buey means Ox. In spain Ox steaks are very popular. The animal is not so young anymore when slaughtered and the meat then properly aged. Fantastic taste!
With the food we had a glass of local red wine, a shiraz, went well with it.
You will now ask, why does the restaurants name is VINOTINTO…. (red wine)…. well you just have to go downstairs to discover why…
We really enjoy the food and the ambiance and can only recommend…
