TASCA 42, MORAIRA 965745594
Tapas treats in Moraira
Tasca 42 is located about one kilometre outside Moraira at Ctra. Moraira Calpe 128. It is a small tapas restaurant tastefully decorated and hosted by a friendly, service orientated Italian/Spanish couple. It belongs to that genre of innovative, high quality “Tascas” which are redefining the tapas concept, in this case with a slant towards organic vegetarian dishes.
Michele, the Italian owner, suggested a range of seven tapas, for a food price of €12 per person, an exceptional price/quality deal.
The wines were a white Campillo fermented in barrel (€10) and a Faustino Rioja Crianza; again great value at €9.
The tapas selection was as follows: calamar andaluza, mejillones al vapor (we had two portions as they were so good), habas con jamon iberico, croquettas de zanahoria, albondigas de berengena, el secreto iberico and a new tapa of the day –a mini hamburger of pork and liver with caramelised onion and spinach.
All in all, an excellent experience costing €18.90 p.p. Recommended to visit soon before the prices go up.
