Run by Yvon, who delights in speaking English as well as Catalan, you can find AL REC tucked away beside the church in the tiny commune of TRESSERRE – not far from Tordères and Fourques.
The focal point of the village for the locals – particularly at the weekends and also on themed evenings throughout the year, you can eat in or out and enjoy good, plain seasonal fresh food including a number of Catalan specialities.
The 3-course set menu costs just 13,90€ and changes regularly. For example serrano ham salad, followed by beef kebab with home-made chips and a tasty, home-madeescalivade (marinated tomatoes, onions & aubergines), rounded off with a refreshing cherry sorbet and chunks of galia melon.
Staples include omelettes (using 3 x farm-fresh eggs) with green side salad, a selection of baguette-style sandwiches and the unforgettable ’Burger AL REC’ with those real home-made chips again just like grandma used to make … there are also details of other dishes dotted around on tiny blackboards (no menus here!) according to the season.
AL REC is open from Tuesday to Sunday – bookings are essential in the evening and at the weekend.
