Sunday Roast At La Sala
Having eaten at La Sala in Puerto Banus on many occasions, one of the few things we had not tried as yet was their famous Sunday lunch. Well thankfully we soon resolved that issue last week as we spent Sunday afternoon enjoying a delicious Sunday roast.
It was the very end of October yet unbelievably the sun was still shining and it was hot enough to sit out on the lovely terrace at La Sala.
Having initially bumped into Talk Radio Europe’s Giles Brown who was also enjoying a Sunday roast, we were escorted to our table by a friendly waiter. One of the things that impress us about La Sala is the fantastic service we always receive from the staff. It makes a big difference to any meal out and makes you want to go back again. Well that and the food of course!
We ordered a nice crisp bottle of house white wine, which is now a gorgeous Sauvignon Blanc. Shortly after our wine was poured we were served an ‘amuse bouche’. It was fried butterflied bocarones served in a salad leaf with a tartar sauce (and it was lovely).
Having looked through an interesting menu, which all sounded great, we decided on our starter and main courses. Hannah went for the mushrooms on toast in tarragon and cream, which was served on a toasted ciabatta and then drizzled with truffle oil and shavings of pecorino cheese (that is basically Hannah heaven).
I opted for homemade chicken liver parfait served with toasted ciabatta and a side of caramelised apple compote.
Both dishes were well presented and very tasty.
Next up Hannah was served her roast chicken with homemade sage and onion stuffing, a chipolata wrapped in bacon and rich chicken gravy.
I went for the roast sirloin beef which came with a rich red wine gravy and horseradish sauce.
Both were served with a giant Guinness Yorkshire pudding, duck fat roast potatoes, honey roasted parsnips, buttered carrots, sautéed green beans, gratinated cauliflower cheese and steamed broccoli.
Needless to say we were completely stuffed after eating all of that!
The food was absolutely delicious and the portions were huge. It is great value for money and I defy anyone to go home still feeling hungry.
You can choose how many courses you want to eat. 1 course is 16.95 or you can have 2 courses for 21.95 or 3 courses for 26.95
The Sunday lunch menu is more extensive than many other nearby restaurants and of course, La Sala is a great setting with a fantastic atmosphere. It is really hard to tear yourself away after lunch without enjoying some of the live entertainment and maybe another drink or two.
We highly recommend you try the Sunday roast at La Sala if you have not done so already.
