Evuna in Altrincham has launched a stunning new Sunday lunch offer, just in time for Mother’s Day.

The Spanish restaurant, which has just marked a year on Stamford New Road, has designed a special Sunday menu “with a Spanish twist”.

And we asked Evuna founder to explain what inspired it…

We all know that food to Spain is like Picasso to art.

Food to a Spaniard is a source of pride, a way to live; part of their identity, and their way of life. It’s arguably the leading food nation in the world at the moment – in terms of ingredients, produce, chefs, restaurants and pushing the boundaries of eating out.

Some of the Sunday starters on offer at Evuna

La comida, or lunch as we say in Spain, is a bit different from what we’re used to in the UK. The large midday meal has several courses and usually includes five or six choices in each. It’s a time where family and friends get together to enjoy each other’s company, tell stories and of course share a glass of vino or two.

Since February, Evuna has been marrying the tradition of la comida with our tradition of Sunday lunch. Sunday is family day and we invite you to enjoy a long, lazy, traditional Sunday roast with a Spanish twist.

Marinated half chicken with Spanish herbs and garlic

The menu has been inspired by Spain’s varying terrain and climate. Meat from the mountains, fish from the coastline and vegetables and chickpeas from La Rioja.

If you ask any of our chefs for their favourite dish they would undoubtedly say their grandmother’s garlic chicken (Pollo al Ajillo), which is why our Sunday lunch meats and fishes are marinated for eight hours with garlic, thyme and rosemary to perfectly pair with our English trimmings of Yorkshire pudding, vegetables and classic roast potatoes.

Evuna’s Sunday vegan option – a half aubergine stuffed with chef Ali’s chickpea and spices recipe

For vegans, we have created a beautiful half aubergine stuffed with chef Ali’s chickpea and spices recipe from Huelva in the North of Spain, providing a protein-packed accompaniment for the vegan roast.

Evuna, 84-86 Stamford New Rd, Altrincham WA14 1BS. To book, call 0161 928 9898 or visit evuna.com. Three courses on a Sunday are priced at £22.95; two courses are £19.95.
