Andalucia Diary – Seasonal Travel Notes

Tapas with a modern twist

Creatively and contemporarily served, the tapas plate of cheese
included a fragrant blue, local goat and a grilled cheese, presented on a slate
plate. Competing for space on our table
was some homemade Ensaladilla Rusa (one of my favorite tapas) and a perfectly
cooked portion of duck with citrus dressing. This is a contemporary
interpretation of tapas. The extensive tapas
menu is complemented by some great wines. I enjoyed the Herventia Rioja.
This was my second visit to my latest discovery in Marbella Old Town;
a modest bar, with simply, modern decoration that serves innovative
and classic tapas in fresh and sophisticated way. We were in the Casco Antigua to enjoy one of
the first Easter processions of Holy Week, but like most things, I end up
eating! Many followers of my blog will know that tapas are my weakness. When
living in London it was dim sum –
something about an almost endless menu of tasty morsels; and overdose of party
food. I love it. However in Southern
Spain the traditional recipes can be very oily and include a lot
of fried dishes, a tradition that is alienating the new generation of 30 and 40
somethings that want something a little sharper.
