Reasons for trip


Having had a full day of sightseeing in Malaga and late afternoon tapas, my legs were weary, and I didn’t want too walk for a light dinner. A Google search of ‘tapas near me’ revealed the nearest bar was Tapa Boca, literally a five-to-10-minute walk from our hotel, Salles Malaga Centro.

It was quiet at 7.45pm, but we chose a table down a quiet side street. There was no wine list, but we asked for a bottle of house white which at €21,was more expensive than we paid to date. Just as our glasses had been filled, the wind below up the paper menu and knocked my glass over. Fortunately it didn’t break and wasn’t too full.

The menu had over 20 of the usual tapas priced on average at €4, as well as fish and meat dishes.

We chose three tapas: prawn rolls (four long thin cigar like rolls which came with a sweet chilli dipping sauce; patatas bravas (with a lovely smooth spicy sauce); and cheese on toast with tomato and anchovy. All were very good, and the place started to busy up.

The total bill came to €43.80 which was more expensive than many other places we ate at, but at least it saved my weary legs.
