Tapas Festival

19 September 2011 | Rota
Cleaned the boat thoroughly today and in the evening went out with Mark and Tara. Steve, Mark and I went to see the Georgia - England World Cup game first in an Irish bar called not surprisingly O'Grady's - see picture. The match was good and although we won 36-10 the Georgians played hard and put England under pressure. The 3 of us were the only ones watching and the rest of the clientele were getting loudly drunk and singing songs accompanied by urgent drumming, which seemed to be an anniversary of something or other or maybe according to one heavily plastered young lady. We were glad when the match ended and are unlikely to go there again unless to watch a game as the beer was expensive as well.

Afterwards we went to the Plaza De La Cantera for the last night of the X11 Feria de la Tapa de Rota which had been running for 3 nights this weekend. There was Flamenco dancing and music and stalls representing 9 bars with tapas 2e a go. Mark and Tara, who have lived in Spain many years said that it was quite expensive as they were used to having tapas for 2 but also including a small beer. There was a variety of tastes but we were not overly impressed with the ones we chose as many were too sweet for our palates. The sea anemones mini omelette with Rota style vegetable puree was interesting and we enjoyed the Paella- soup style tapa of the day along with the Iberian Pork with mushrooms, the others were a bit of a letdown. But a good evening was had by all.

Shame I forgot the camera.
