Zarajo in Barcelona

6th August 2015

 Zarajos as served at Morryssom

One of my favourite tapas dishes is Zarajo, braided sheep’s intestines wrapped around a vine branch and usually broiled, though often grilled, sometimes smoked, served hot with a wedge of lemon.

Very tasty.

Zarajo are not common in Barcelona, the dish originated in Cuenca, the city in Castilla La Mancha.

Zarajo go well with a beer, though I recommend you try them with a glass of rough, strong red wine.

Two places which I know serve zarajo are:

  • Morryssom’s, one of my favourite lunch restaurants and tapas places.
  • Bar L’Amistat, Carrer de Torrijos, 13, in Gràcia. IMPORTANT: L’Amistat as was is now CLOSED. It’s still called, Bar L’Amistat, but is now just another would-be trendy bar and they do not serve zarajo.

Bon profit!
