We had lunch at El
Ladrillo II twice!
The first was after
Friday prayer (15th August 2014) and we were quite famished! The prayer finished at about 3 pm and
yeahh…we always have our lunch pretty late. I’m kinda get used to it now.
After checking out all
the other three restaurants, we were refused of our money saving Menu del Dia.
My husband said there were so many people so the waiters probably did not have
time to attend to people ordering menu del dia because it's cheap and not
making many profit for them.
How cheap? You can
get as cheap as 7 euro per person for Menu del Dia (not including IVA) for
bread, appetizer and main meal. Unfortunately, you have to order a drink and
water is not free.

The bar area in El Ladrillo II. We waited here before getting
our seats on the first floor.
We walked into many
alleys and finally saw a decent restaurant. I was attracted by the interior and
decided there and then to eat at El Ladrillo II!
Luck was on our
side. The waitress said there was Menu del Dia. Mind you..we were there after
3pm! She was so kind.
patio! Arghh!! The place was full so we had to dine upstairs. We settled for a
bit more privacy as only a table was occupied other than us.
I fell in love with the staircase and the warm first floor. ^^
Pity my husband. I love sun and warmth..hehe.
We ordered potato
with onion and green pepper fried in olive oil and salad for appetizer (primer plato) and fried seafood for main meal (segundo plato). Bread is given once you
made your order. We had to order mineral water and in the case of El Ladrillo
II; you have to order the big bottle or the carbonated water (agua con gas) for
a small bottle (not sweet) but both are the same price.
The salad was just
normal but this was my first time eating potato fried like this. Either we were
too famished or the food was delicious; we were pretty unsure of that but we
cleaned the plate!! Hehehe… I love the potato so much that I cooked it twice in
In the restaurant,
it cost 8 euro per plate but back home..less than 1 euro. ^^
The menu, the bread and the agua con gas (carbonated water).
The main meal in El
Ladrillo II was heavenly….hmm…maybe because I have not eaten seafood for quite
some time. About two months to be exact. I could only eat half of it. The
serving was huge! The rest was into my husband’s stomach. ^^
The serving was huge and I think 2 people should share a plate. ^^
The same happened
on the third day (rejected of our menu del dia) but this time we went straight
into El Ladrillo II because the time was
past 4 pm, I was super hungry and could eat a cow. I couldn’ wait!!
This time we got a
seat at the pretty patio. Yeah!!
They also did not
offer menu del dia so we just had to break our piggy bank for our last lunch in
2- boquerones frita – fried small white anchovies (delicious!!)
3- paella de mariscos – seafood paella
4- the compulsory
drink - water 1.5 liter
The total was about
45 euros but it was worth every euro huhuhu... the paella was superb although
my husband said Valencia's paella is much much better. I don’t know when I will
go to Valencia but I know I had to eat paella then. ^^
Whatever!! Do not
spoil my appreciation please...hahhahha *super hungry mode*
Want to cook your
own paella at home? This might not be the original one from Valencia but the
recipe is pretty simple to adopt. Valencian, don’t kill me! I just feel that it’s
easier to cook this much for a trial. ^^
