|Steven, our waiter and I|
While we thought about dessert, I fooled around with our waiter, Steven. He was a lot of fun and very attentive. Why try one when you can try a bunch? We sampled a selection of sweets that made my sweet tooth sing with pleasure. We had tarts, cakes apple pies, you name it. This could become a hang out for me!
|Lots of desserts to choose from|
When I went to Madrid this summer, I had the opportunity of treating myself to a cochinillo (suckling pig) at one of the oldest restaurants in the world, Botin, and now, Bellmont offers this culinary delight prepared a la lena in the very same kind of wood-fired oven. I can't wait to return and entice my palate with one. Just note, if you're interested in one of these babies, you have to order it in advance since it takes over a day to prepare.
|Voila! Behold the cochinillo|
Also, if you're in the area during breakfast or lunch, they have an extensive choice of mini-sandwiches, house-baked breads, croissants and other yummies to choose from along with a daily Lunch Special of the Day featuring a soup or salad and a sandwich. For a limited time, Bellmont is running a special where you bring 3 Adults to breakfast, lunch or dinner and the 4th eats free. Some restrictions apply, so for more information, check out their website at http://bellmontrestaurant.com/home.
