Ruta De La Tapa
We are new to Torrevieja and while looking at properties our Realtor told us there are food and wine events throughout the year, one of them he referred to as Tapas week. We kept our eyes open and sure enough came upon a flier for the Ruta De La Tapa. This is an event which takes place over two weekends, eight days total. 43 restaurants are participating offering unusual and creative tapas with a glass of wine for $2-$2.5 Euros. We managed to make it to 16 of them, this was a fun week introducing us to a large amount of area restaurants, all within walking distance.
La Bodeguilla Del Mullins
This was our first stop, a cozy little wine bar. The wine pairing they offered was quite good and we immediately got excited about the week ahead.
La Barra De Chicotes
Las Columnas has one of the best locations as you can see. We also agreed at the end of the week they may have had our favorite wine offering. Both dishes were excellent.
Bar Taperia Los Zamoranos
Bar La Gaviota
La Bella Lola
Ole Del Mar
And that brings us to the end of weekend 1. It’s also worth noting that each restaurant will offer different Tapas on week 2.
Well this is a great start to week 2. Both of these dishes were so good we each ordered a second round.
Meson El Huertano
The two above restaurants are located near to each other and they were both packed as we showed up during the Menu Del Dia. The food coming out looked great, the four dishes we had were excellent so we plan on returning and trying the Menu Del Dia.
Restaurante El Pescador
These may be the prettiest plates of the week. We may need to come back and experience a full meal.
El Rincon Del Norte
El Faro de Torrevieja Mejilloneria
And there you have it! It was a great week. We made it to 16 out of the 43 restaurants, not too bad. We will try and do better next year.
