Each year, on the last Wednesday of August, the humble city of Buñol is transformed into the site of Spain’s most famous food fight – La Tomatina. Over 150,000 tomatoes serve as “weapons” in Buñol, but at Jaleo, we prefer to use them in specialty tapas and cocktails – the perfect late summer indulgence. Join us as we celebrate this historic event and embrace the spirit of La Tomatina!
Starting the week of August 22, it's officially Tomatina time at Jaleo. Join us in Washington, D.C (August 29), Las Vegas, and Chicago to enjoy two weeks of special tapas, each featuring unique preparations of the season's best produce. From simple ensaladas with juicy heirloom tomatoes and specialty Spanish ingredients like conserved tuna or Valdeón blue cheese, to grilled hanger steak served with heirloom tomatoes and piparra peppers, there's something to satisfy every summer craving.
