Salt and Pepper
We arrived in Torrevieja, September 6, 2018. We came here with the intent to buy a flat, stay a few months and then return to the United States. Well, that all mostly worked out. We found our flat, the perfect place in the perfect neighborhood. Local, away from the tourist center, quiet with local merchants, carnecerias and halal markets. As our flat was closing we walked through our new neighborhood one night to get a feel of what our new life would be like. Our first restaurant we discovered was Salt and Pepper. It was you could say, meant to be. The owners, George (who is Greek) and his wife Tin Tin (who is Filipino ) are incredible, super hospitable. You would think they are new to this, not yet jaded. Loving their customers and treating them like family. They Love Bisque Kitt. He gets lots of treats here. So, we decided to do a full meal one night, made reservations, and this is how it went.
Croquettes are a typical tapa or starter dish here and they vary greatly in quality, taste and ingredients. I am usually just kind of OK with them though sometimes I find myself craving the deep fried little balls. These were possibly some of the best I have had. Absolutely delicious.
Our next course was one of their most popular menu items, drunken shrimp.
Since George is Greek we wanted to try one of their Greek dishes. This was a good idea. Basically a braised fall apart beef stew. I really like this dish. I will return to have this again.
We finished with this lovely dessert. I thoroughly recommend Salt and Pepper restaurant in Torrevieja. The food is excellent and the owners are awesome.
