Morito's 6th annual Seafood Festival is back in October!

 

Morito’s annual Seafood Festival, or Fiesta de Marisco, comes back to shore this October with a range of innovative dishes celebrating the fruits of the sea in a delicious and innovative new menu. This year each seafood dish will be matched with a particular sherry creating a pairing experience that brings a taste of the sea to Exmouth Market.

 

Launching on Monday the 8th of October and running every day, for the rest of the month, Morito will celebrate the Seafood Festival with a four-course set menu with sherry pairings.

The menu will cost £45 per head with four small glasses of sherry or £35 per head, without sherry.

Morito will be opening on Sunday nights!

Once Morito's Calçotada Sundays have finished, at the end of February, we will continue to open on Sunday nights. The kitchen will be closed briefly between 4-5pm but drinks and para picar will be available. At 5pm, our full menu will be on offer.

Calcotada 2018

Bringing the seasonal flavours and party atmosphere of the Gran Fiesta de la Calçotada to Exmouth Market every Sunday in February, Morito’s set menu will include the ubiquitous charcoal grilled calçots, wrapped in newspaper, served with romesco - the famous Catalan nut sauce. Slurp down the delicious calçots alongside grilled chorizo, morcilla and butifarra with white beans or salt cod with potatoes, green peppers and aioli (and there's a delicious almond tart with traditional slices of chilled orange to round the evening's eating off).

The calçot is a type of green onion from Catalonia, somewhere between a spring onion and a leek. The popularity of the calçot has given rise to the Calçotada - an annual gastronomical event in Valls and beyond, celebrating the harvest of the calçot. True to the Catalonian spirit, it is a great excuse to get together, talk, party and more importantly eat onions! Large bunches, fresh from the earth, are grilled over an open fire until charred then wrapped in newspaper to steam through. The calçots are served on terracotta tiles, peeled with bare hands, dunked in rich romesco sauce made from almonds and peppers, and then devoured. Typically served with grilled meats and washed down with plenty of wine and vermouth.
 
For £40 per head, Morito diners can experience a taste of the Gran Fiesta de la Calçotada every Sunday night in February.
