Gastronomy is an essential element to take into consideration when choosing a destination, because through it we know more about the land we step on and the people who live in. And besides… it’s a pleasure, isn’t it?
In this post we invite you to discover three gastronomic options to organize your visit to Alcoi, although you already know that at Casa Timoteo we can assist you in a personalized way for any information you need –contact by whatsApp–
There are our three proposals, we hope you like them:
1 Explore the city center
Casa Timoteo is in the centre of Alcoi. And when say in the Centre, it’s in the Centre 😉
A few hundred meters from your suite or boutique apartment you will find the “Plaça de Dins”. A beautiful 17th-century arcaded square and its adjacent streets where the tapas bars in Alcoi gather. It is a ritual for Alcoyans to go out for tapas, which in Alcoy are called “taretes”
With the family, in couple or with friends, tapas are usually served at the center of the table to “snack” while the conversation flows as suggested in the gastronomic tourism brand l’Exquisit Mediterrani from the the Valencian area.
Some of the most unique tapas of the cuisine of Alcoi are, among others, the “Abisinios” (boiled and breading egg) “Garibaldinos” (Breaded shrimp) “Faves sacsades” (tender beans with ham) or the popular “Pericana” a “mojete” based on dried pepper, garlic, cod and olive oil that will leave you meaningless… Don’t leave Alcoi without trying it!
Another essential gastronomic dish if you visit the Mountain of Alicante is the rice, which is cooked wonderfully in Alcoi in all its forms. Very close to Casa Timoteo and taking a pleasant walk among its modernist buildings you can eat in several restaurants that offer magnificent rice dishes such as the “Arròs del Senyoret”, the “Arròs caldós” or the spectacular “Arròs al Forn” as humble as tasty.
One of the best places to eat rice that we can recommend without fear of being wrong is “El Amagatall de Tota”. A marvel. Remember that it is always better to call and book in advance.
2 Visit the local market
In the market is where you feel the life of a city. If you are passionate about good food and choose Casa Timoteo for your stay in Alcoi, you will be able to learn more about local cuisine because we offer you boutique apartments with kitchen in the center of Alcoi (cool! I want to see the equipment) so that, without giving up the luxury and exlusivity for your stay, you can enjoy much more trying the typical and unique products in your own apartment.
Very close to Casa Timoteo you can visit the “Mercat de Sant Roc” where you can buy the best fresh products of local farmers and also products made by artisans throughout the area of the Mountain Alicante, some ot them among the brand “Serra Mariola”.
Honey, sausages, pickles, salted and of course… the wonderfull Olive Oil that is produced throughout the natural area surrounds Alcoi such as the Font Roja-Mariola Natural Park or the small agricultural towns of the L’Alcoià and El Comtat regions.
You can not miss trying the famous Anchovy Stuffed Olives which were invented in Alcoi and which they even have their own museum in the olive factory El Serpis where its founder Cándido Miro’s firts marketed them in early S.XX. They ares perfect to accompany a good Vermouth 😉
Imagine yourself in your “Deluxe Suite” (look the Suite), with your partner or friends and having a good wine while you enjoy preparing the appetizer together…
But at Casa Timoteo we have more for you! Keep reading
3 Trip of the stars… (Michelin)
It is said that you don’t know Alicante if you haven’t stepped on these mountains…
is in the Mountain of Alicante, dotted with small villages, orchards, fountains and almond groves where a genuinely authentic and Mediterranean culinary landscape is formed and it is in the L’Escaleta restaurant where they have best managed to concentrate and transmit this gastronomic richness. That’s the reason why they have obtained two Michelin Stars and three Repsol Suns, among other distinctions. Therefore, the team of Casa Timoteo, hand in hand with Chef Kiko Moya, has prepared for you a unique experience that combines the accommodation in Deluxe Suite of Casa Timoteo with an exclusive tasting menu for our guests.
The experience is presented in this beautiful floral design gift box that contains the gift card, a detail from Casa Timoteo and a gastronomic elaboration prepared by Chef Kiko Moya.
