What’s on offer:

It turns out the valencians live not only on paella and horchata but also enjoy more modern offerings. That's where Quesomentero finds it's most ardent supporters. The premise is simple and the name leaves few doubts about what is the main focus here. The whole menu is made of cheese, or derivatives of it.

We tried the Quesomentero for lunch, when they offer a mighty "menu del día" for 14,90€, drinks not included. After the starter, a "tabla de queso" (cheese platter), which is properly explained by the server and accompanied by strawberry marmalade, we had a delicious (if very fatty) mascarpone salad, followed by a "panmentero" (which is basically a grilled cheese sandwich with different toppings).

The good, bad, ugly

Good: The cheese selection.

Bad: Slightly overpriced, not the fastest service.

Ugly: Your face, when you mentally calculate the calories.

Conclusion

The variety among cheeses is, well, overwhelming. On the other hand, maybe obvious to most, the variety on anything else is just non-existent. Do we recommend it? It depends. Probably cheese lovers will find themselves at home in the Quesomentero. We did find the menu delicious, but a bit to heavy and filling. We'd have prefered a bit more of a selected cheesiness, so for us it will probably be more like a one -time thing than a regular occurence. Where the concept really shines though is as "almuerzo" or as an early night stop, where you can share a selection of delicious cheese -based treats among friends while enjoying a glass of wine mere meters away from the Plaza de Ayuntamiento.
