Take a Churro Break from Shopping

churros jamoneraIf you’re anything like me you’re looking forward to starting your Christmas shopping this weekend. And if you’re really like me, you’re already looking forward to the distractions that will keep you from completing your shopping.

One option that is sure to beckon like a siren, churros and chocolate at Jamonera. From 1 to 4 p.m. on Saturday the 21st, the Midtown Village tapas hotspot will be offering churros for $8 plus some hot drinks.

Paella and Sangria Night Tonight at Jamonera

sangria jamoneraAs Estelle Costanza once said, “what am I going to do with all this paella?” Well the answer at Jamonera is to serve it up with Spanish tapas and a pitcher of sangria.

Tonight, the Midtown Village hotspot is offering a paella and sangria night. Dinner is $35 per person and includes salad, croquettes, papa frita, a choice of paella and a pitcher of blanca or roja sangria.

One Night Only: Hop Sing Laundromat And Jamonera Are Throwing A Late-Night Party


Clear your schedules for Monday, August 12 (and probably the morning after, too) because for one night only, from 10pm ’til 1am, Lee from Hop Sing is going to descend on Marcie Turney and Val Safran’s Jamonera for a party.

Hop Sing will be doing the cocktails (natch) and Turney’s kitchen crew will be doing “Marcie’s late night staff snacks” for all in attendance. The price tag is modest with bar snacks going for just $5, cocktails running $10 each (which, if you know the kind of liquor Lee slings, is just ridiculously cheap) and wine, sangria and beers going for $5, $4 and $3, respectively.

What else do we know? No gate. No dress code. And no photos, so leave the cell phones in your pockets.

But hey, this will probably be more fun than anyone should be allowed to have on a Monday so maybe photographic evidence might not be the best idea anyhow…

Marcie Turney And Valerie Safran Are Taking Over Fish


Over on the Insider, they’re reporting that it’s a done deal–that the owners of Barbuzo, Jamonera and Lolita (which just picked up a liquor license) have now officially decided to expand off of 13th Street (which they essentially own) and try to take on a new neighborhood by snapping up Fish.

No news on what, exactly, the pair plan to do with the double space (remember: this is also where Rhino Bar lived and died), but Klein does have a nice, succinct look back at the history of the embattled space under Mike Stollenwerk and others.

Don’t Miss This: Pork Asado at Jamonera


With just five short nights left in this year’s Center City Restaurant Week, we’ve decided to call out individually excellent dishes at participating restaurants–just to remind you, in case you haven’t yet had a chance to try them.

And we’re starting off with a strong one: The pork asado at Jamonera, which comes as a second full course (which, counting shared amuse plates, is really the third course) on the house’s Restaurant Week dinner menu. It’s essentially a pork-two-ways kind of plate, offering roasted pork shoulder and pork belly (in a sherry-orange glaze), mounted over a corn cake with a bright and palate-cleansing orange and fennel salad on the side. Pair this with the cana de cabra (fried goat cheese), some papas fritas and the nocilla bread pudding with bourbon-caramel sauce, and you’ll understand why Restaurant Week is such a killer deal.
