Kiaora Biococina has its own farm situated in a valley 950 metres above sea level, where it grows all its own vegetables – without horrid chemicals – that are then used to create their dishes. They also have animals which probably end up in the food too, which I don’t like to focus on, having a heightened or as I see it – normal – level of compassion for other species. But at least the creatures leave a normalish life before slaughter – which is a small mercy.
Dishes likely to appeal to the discerning vegetarian palate are as follows:
Ensalada Silvestre – a mix of twenty types of leaf, sprouts, wild flowers, muesli, nuts and a lemon dressing. €9-
Ensalada Caprese – cannelloni with goat cheese and tomato on a bed of rocket. €10-
Ensalada Cerveza – avocado and fresh cheese in a raspberry beer tempura with dried fruit and nuts and dressing – €9.50.
Equilibrio – a mix of white garlic and tamarind gazpacho with parsley and pepper. €8-
Queso y vino – a selection of organic cow, sheep and goat cheese, with cava marmalade. €12-
Carne vegetal – soya sausage with aromatic mayonnaise. €9.50.
Bio-kebab – a kebab made with seitan that includes lettuce, onion, yogurt and garlic with a mint and oregano chapatti. €10-
Un toque de oriente – an oriental dish with risotto rice, quinoa, babaganush and agar-agar. €12-
Most of the other dishes are meat based, although if you are with a carni, then at least what they are tucking into should have had a modicum of a natural and respectful existence.
Desserts are relatively cruelty free and consist of a fruit smoothie for €4, panne cotta of pina colada or a monstrous looking brownie with macadamia nuts, glace cherries and cava mousse. For €4-€6.
They have a wide range of organic beers for a bargain €3 and a bottle of organic champagne for €20. Again, something of a bargain. Organic wines start from €13 a bottle.
