There is some stiff competition in Salamanca. The Jack Greene, Cargo and Grape trifecta hold the monopoly; three establishments congested with happy revelers. There are pubs and restaurants too, and there’s the Quarry, clinging on to the edge, without the customers enjoyed by its peers.
A special beef salad
It’s not a frequent eating destination for This Girl, but it is a regular watering hole. This year we made it the work Christmas lunch venue. So there we all were, Mr Nobody, Mr Lemon Ricotta, the Lady of Leisure, Ms Erin, Mrs Bojangles, and the Style-Princess.
the desserts don’t quite live up to they menu hype
they're Queen of the re-purposed glass jar
greenery aside, it’s okay value.
The freeze-dried strawberries were a nice touch to the choc tart
We're a relatively new little team and the Christmas lunch was a time to get to know each other a little better. Mr Lemon Ricotta surprisingly did not get his tongue stuck in the jar of mocha sauce he practically licked clean. Mr Nobody, who actually is somebody, regaled us with the craziest stories of venomous snakes in his house (Urgghh!!!), a feral cat shot dead from the breakfast table (in-laws hey? can't live with them, can't escape them), and his car, found at the bottom of the ravine opposite his house, sans-handbrake (Ouch that insurance excess is high for under 25s).
Overall, we enjoyed our meals. The Quarry was a solid choice and a few of us stayed on to soak up the sun and take in a few mojitos.
There’s good reason to eat there and it’s certainly a great place to catch up with friends, outside, or on comfy seats and lounges inside.
