##The ‘24/7 Valencia’ team have had some really memorable nights of delicious dining & superb live music at ‘Mar d’Amura’, which is now a definitive part of the thriving Cabanyal scene. This place has quality written all over it and attracts an appreciative crowd and is refreshingly integrated with the district. Set in the heart of the Cabanyal district, it is run by Maria de Miguel, a popular local of this still humble and increasingly dynamic barrio.
Maria has brought plenty of experience with her with this long-term project at ‘Mar d’Amura’…that is really broad in scope. The vision is a gastronomic and cultural space for locals and visitors. Indeed, she tells us that they have an upstairs that will be opened one day in the future, which bodes well given just how active a place the ground floor already is. She has a dynamic team behind her, running the restaurant and organizing the busy cultural programme with art exhibitions, talks and excellent live music included…
Dig the tasty octopus! The philosophy of the kitchen is market produce, with seasonal products used in Valencian & Mediterranean cuisine and the gastronomy of the Cabanyal. The dishes are elaborate, artistically presented and healthy and good value, considering the quality of the ingredients. Their desserts are 100% homemade. From Wednesday to Friday, they have a daily midday menu for 9.50€ and they always have options for vegans, vegetarians and gluten-free dishes too. Large groups with specialized menus are catered for at any hour and any day of the week if you book in advance.
LIVE MUSIC VENUE
Sometimes there is live flamenco at Mar d’Amura. A post-gig jam session started with musicians including Roqui Albero, Javi Forner, Russ Van Den Berg, David Gadea and Vicent Macián. Some flamenco singers, including Vicente y Juan Torres (canto), Ramón Giménez (canto) and Johnny Bizárraga have joined in. They are local lads from Cabanyal, starting out in the world of flamenco. Percussionist Sergio Martinez proposed this project and since then we have been privileged to enjoy the artistry of wonderful musicians like Perico Sambeat, Tomás de los Cariños, Juan de Pilar, Juan José Amador, Mateo Castro, Helena Feenstra, Alba Díaz, Ricardo Osorno, Eric Benavent, Chicho Leo, Dario Piccioni, Ales Cesarini, Ginés Rodríguez and more. There are more varied genres like Mediterranean music shows too. See their Facebook page for updates…
