I recently enjoyed a tapas lunch in Antequera, at the Arte de Cozina tapas bar and restaurant. The chef is Charo Carmona, a member of GastroArte. Charo Carmona has become recognised as one of Andalucía’s notable chefs and she specialises in using traditional recipes that showcase the best of northern Malaga’s produce and the rich culinary heritage of Antequera and beyond.
Below I feature some of the plates, captured on my iphone. I say mre about this place in my post on Archidona and Antequera.
Smoked ham tapa.
This is a selection of ‘porra Antequerana’ – traditional tapa that are like a cold gazpacho soup but made with more bread to make them thicker. Here the selection includes a classic tomato, an ajoblanco garlic tapa and also a more contemporary style porra with orange.
This is the ajoblanco, made with garlic and almonds – classic Andalusian, Malaga dish.
Bobina de langostinos – ‘coil’ prawns, a sort of tempura style.
Selection of homemade croquettes; goat’s cheese, spinach, and chicken.
One of the home made mini burgers – this one is chorizo.
Tasty homemade bird pate with Pedro Ximenez sherry wine.
