Scorching Restaurant Altomira de Navajas, located in one of the main inland tourist destinations of the Valencian Community
The Scorching Altomira restaurant in Navajas (Castellón) is another of the Group's success stories, where the mirror is reciprocal. The learning between franchisee and franchisee, for the enormous experience in hospitality of Adolfo and Nacho, Altomira partners, it is mutual.
Ideal enclave. Rural tourism Castellón
Navajas, just 40 minutes from Valencia and its metropolitan area and very close to Castellón, It is one of the main inland tourist destinations of the Valencian Community. "Our town is located between two natural parks, the Sierra de Espadán and Sierra Calderona and the Ojos Negros greenway runs through it, the more long from Spain. The main tourist attraction of the town is the Salto de la Novia, a waterfall of 60 meters high.

scorching Altomira, specialized in rice dishes and grilled and own-aged meats, has a capacity for 80 diners in the restaurant and 30 diners in the cafeteria, in addition to having an interior patio and an exterior terrace, where both lunch and dinner are also offered.
The beginnings of Scorching Altomira
Nacho Torres and Adolfo Aucejo begin their dream in hospitality in 1997, managing the Altomira campsite, where the Scorching Altomira restaurant is currently located.
“We soon realized that we had to unify the business and take it under the same direction. (since in the beginning the camping restaurant was managed by a third party) although it wasn't until four years ago when we bet on the brand Burning".
We have found excellence with our own special meats, grilled meats, both in veal and Iberian pork, Y novel cuts. All of it, added to the formations taught by the Scorching Group chef Carlos Torres, has allowed us to achieve one of our objectives: differentiate ourselves and be a gastronomic benchmark between the wide offer in our region.
The formation, a highly valued pillar
The restaurant staff are involved in trainings throughout the year, both the one imparted by the chain and the one proposed by the Altomira management in the Development Centers of the Valencian Community (CDT), principally. “As business managers, the training of both the kitchen and living room staff, it is the main base and one of the strengths for which the Altomira restaurant bets without fissures ".
Scorching Altomira's kitchen
The kitchen and gastronomic space of Altomira is aimed at a mostly family audience, but also couples, vacation tourism, family events, of companies, etc.
We work many zero kilometer products, enjoying those foods from a region like ours rich in extra virgin olive oil with Denomination of Origin, products from our garden and, of course, the meat of our own breeding and grilled from the family farm that the Group has been operating for two generations in Menasalbas (Toledo).
Our cuisine is traditional without losing the native recipe of our ancestors; but a tradition that never ceases to amaze the customer with testimonies, avant-garde proposals, novel presentations and dishes. The best reward we find is the experience our client has in the restaurant.
Objectives of the Altomira restaurant in Navajas
Our goal is to try to stay at the level we are today. "That is not easy", Adolfo points out, since Navajas is a small indoor nucleus, very well located, but where we have to give our best every day.
Outdoor spaces and engagement
With the improvements we have made at the beginning of 2020 (extension with the new outdoor terrace and playground) e driven as we said by training, in addition to the tenacity and motivation of the entire team, our objetive, and said with all the respect and responsibility, is to keep us.
A challenging challenge without a doubt, when the objective is the commitment to a quality raw material, very powerful human resources - with an average team of 10 people throughout the year, that are the heart of Scorching Altomira- and surprise customers to continue betting and repeating in this gastronomic space.
