Las Tapas de Lola

I had driven past Las Tapas de Lola a few weeks ago whilst in town and made a mental note to try and visit it in the near future. Our first attempt to eat there was on a Friday night but unfortunately, they were fully booked. This time, I remembered to ring ahead and bagged a table for a Saturday night :)

The resto, whilst not in the nicest part of town, is nicely decorated inside. The menu is extensive with some interesting dishes that you might not necessarily find in other tapas restos and staff are very helpful and friendly :)

The dishes we ordered were a bit hit and miss but with such a large menu, I am tempted to come back and have another go!!

Bomba de la Barceloneta - large meatball with spicy sauce. Not what we were expecting, tasted OK but the inside was still cold :(


Mixed fried fish Malaga style - generous portion but the chunks of hake had a lot of bones 


Mussels - tasty but a little on the small side (we were also given a smaller dish as a complimentary nibble together with a punchy glass of sangria too!)


Empanadas de carne - memories of Argentina!! I liked them but JD not a fan as the filling had olives in them!


Chorizo y morcilla - both a little too chewy for me :(


My favourite dish of the night - Cazuelita de fideuá - a Catalan dish similar to paella which uses noodles instead of rice. Could easily have eaten another plate of this :)



Churros and tea for dessert :)
(yummy langues de chat too!)

We probably ordered quite a lot for 2 people (7 dishes, 2 desserts, 2 tea/coffee and one glass of sherry) but final bill was quite reasonable :)
