Sunday May 7, VT Lunch Meeting at SOL DE EUROPA CAFETERIA Beach front restaurant close to most of the hotels.
Starters: Soup or Salad or Gazpacho (chilled Andalalucian soup)
Main course: Paella or Meat dish
Coffee or Helado (ice cream)
Cost per person 11 Euros
You can eat in or out, the cafe style suited the people watchers. The promenade was just feet away and watching people strolling by added to the European atmosphere. I had the delightful experience of watching a small puppy play with an older dog for about 20 minutes, up and down the promenade, in and out of peoples' legs....
The palm trees create a tropical feel, the hothouse plants add to that impression and the sun was not too hot in May. A pleasant way to spend the afternoon.
Favorite Dish: I just love paella... the colours, the combinations of flavours, but most of all the seafood. With chilled white wine or a nice cold beer, it went down very well indeed.
Starters for me was Gapazcho soup. Chilled soup is a rare delight for me, normally being too cold to have it at home. The sun set it off just nicely!
The dessert was a fantastic choccy mouse thingy in a glass, nice and light, not too filling.
