Picoteca 3Maneras. Calle Sta. Escolástica, 19
Picoteca 3Maneras owes its name to three ways of eating: with your hands, cutlery or chopsticks. And it supposes a whole declaration of intentions in this beautiful bar of the Realejo of Granada. There you will taste many flavors, those that arise from everyday stews or from innovative techniques and fusion. Everyone always responds to that characteristic kitchen without ties that preaches its head and chef, Antonio Rojas.
After his academic training, the chef went through different restaurants in places such as Reserva del Higuerón (Malaga) or Palacio de Luces (Asturias) with Fernando Martín, National Gastronomy Award. Until one day he decided to become independent. “I always wanted to set something up with my own ideas,” says Rojas, who fulfilled his dream at the end of 2014. Since then, he has let his creativity run through the kitchens of this restaurant.
Hands, cutlery and chopsticks are the three sections of an exquisite menu that includes Salmorejo with sweet tomato and anchovy, the Fish & Tuna Burger, seed bread, avocado and seaweed, the Ceviche Inca Azteca or the Japo-Andalusian Fritura.
His most frequent customers know that you always have to keep an eye on the suggestions of the day, where Rojas plays with seasonal products, always adding a risky fusion point. As if that were not enough, on Sundays there are days devoted to rice, which they cook there in many different ways, while some evenings a year are themed dinners.
And even a few months ago they launched the First Days of Asturian cuisine. “I get up a cook and I go to bed a cook, my head never stops”, says the chef. Thanks to this, Granada is lucky to have this great gastronomic corner
