Casa Montaña, Valencia, dinner Menus Photoblog by Qin Xie - 18/07/201419/03/2016 Menu from a tapas dinner at the century-old wine and tapas bar Casa Montaña in Valencia: Stewed broad beans Marinated tuna fish in 7 spices Clóchinas Valencian mussels Stuffed Piquillo red pepper Brandada de Bacalao (cod brandada) Grilled calamari Sirloin from specially reared cattle, served in chunks with green garlic shoots Traditional Valencian orange-based dessert Chocolate truffles Casa Montaña is incredibly busy and is popular with the locals as well as the tourists. When I went, things were already in full swing and I ended up ducking down behind the bar for a table right next to the kitchen. It turned out they had plenty of little rooms back there to try the small plates. And there were a lot of small plates. The food was not necessarily difficult to make. In fact, some were very simple like the stewed broad beans. But I think it was more about the jovial atmosphere than the food. And as it’s all about the bar, that’s not a bad thing.
