I have discovered a little pearl of an Italian restaurant on Mojácar playa, unpretentious and cosy, situated on the Casa Egea stretch, more or less opposite Tito´s.
It´s still called Mojo Picón, as when the chicken with mojo picón was the main attraction.
Now it´s run by a friendly young Italian couple who serve really good homemade Italian food – I´m stuck on the ravioli filled with pumpkin, accompanied by bolognese sauce or a fresh tomato sauce, but there are many other pasta dishes to choose from. Last time my friend had pasta with homemade pesto, great!
There is also a selection of meat and fish dishes. If you ask for it a small salad comes with whatever food you choose, which saves you from ordering one of those huge salads that usually cost around 6 euros and that you can´t possibly finish.
I haven´t tried the pizzas yet, but I´ve seen they are big, and look highly appetizing.
If you don´t have a pudding a small bowl of fresh fruit is served after the meal, and the very reasonable bill comes with a chupito of a delicious liquor.
And oh, the white house wine is a lovely macabeo.
