Each year, on the last Wednesday of August, the humble city of Buñol is transformed into the site of Spain’s most famous food fight – La Tomatina.
Over 150,000 tomatoes serve as “weapons” in Buñol, but at Jaleo, they prefer to use them in specialty tapas and cocktails – the perfect late-summer indulgence.
Starting the week of August 22, it’s officially Tomatina time as we celebrate two weeks of specials featuring unique preparations of the season’s best produce.
From simple ensaladas with juicy heirloom tomatoes and specialty Spanish ingredients like conserved tuna, to grilled steak served with heirloom tomatoes and piparra peppers, the focus is all about la tomatina.
