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.

This was on our table when we arrived. Bisque Kitt (our dog) was pleased
Four Cheese House-made Croquettes with Honey

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.

Drunken Shrimp

Our next course was one of their most popular menu items, drunken shrimp.

Greek Beef Stifado cooked with Cognac

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.

2 1/2 very happy people!

About XPLORE FILM and Sip & Stay

The Art of Life

Tony and Terri-Lynn met in 1987 as teenagers. In 1991 they were married.  Tony has been a professional musician his entire life and spent the 90’s touring and releasing albums.  In 2001 the couple left the cities and moved to a small community on the Oregon coast. This is where they fell into television production and film making. In 2004 Makai Ohana Productions was founded and the couple produced advertising and creative content for hundreds of tourism related businesses and government entities in Southern Oregon and Northern California. Realizing the industry was evolving towards the internet they re-branded the business in 2012 to Xplore Film.  This company would now be an international business producing films world wide as well as an NGO in West Africa where the couple provides clean water boreholes, scholarships and even a prosthetic hand project.

In 2018 Tony and Terri-Lynn with their dog Bisque Kitt packed the belongings they could carry on their backs and flew to Spain. They bought a home and planned to spend equal time between the two countries running the business.  Then Covid hit and the world closed.  By 2020 they realized Spain, and specifically Torrevieja was now home.  They bought a sailboat and started to create a life on the Costa Blanca of music, film, events and community.
