Meson Mudejar curry night with live music: It’s Fiesta Friday Curry Night (and every Friday) at Meson Mudejar, Calle Alamos 6, Archez, at the area’s first plant-based (vegan) restaurant, Meson Mudejar, a couple of kilometres below Canillas de Albaida in the quaint and authentic small white village of Archez. David and Kinga prepare international, handmade international varieties of delicious plant-based dishes. Meson Mudejar also features theme nights like Friday’s Curry Nights when local musicians offer entertainment and there’s a special curry menu at 15€ for a three-course meal, opening at 19:00. The menu includes: starter is onion fritter (Pakora). Main course: three curries to chose from—Mushroom and Peas in Spicy Coconut Sauce, Red Lentil Dal or Chickpea Curry (takes a day and a half to prepare). Dessert: Chocolate mousse. All sauces are hand designed, all plant-based, all very tasty and healthy. And the ambience is magic and rustic and real. Imagine yourself entering a gypsy cave, a rustic and authentic Moroccan mountain village home, half restaurant, half B & B. While it seats 37, reservations are recommended. Thanks to DigameXtra readers and thanks to DigameXtra our Curry Nights’ popularity soars. Contact David or Kinga at 682 489 949 or Whatsapp. www.facebook.com/mesonvegan

Missing cat, have you seen him: Our cat, really a campo cat, has not been seen for a few days. A couple of days of wandering has not been unusual but it has been 4 days now. If you see him you will notice a terrible scabby skin around his neck and back. The vet is dealing with it although it is not easy. Hopefully a caring person has noticed his bad condition and taken him in. Any sightings desperately wanted. We are in the rio Chillar / Exotica area, across from the sunday market. Nick
