It is almost a foregone conclusion that putting something like this on display when I am out wandering will have only one outcome. It was delicious.
I suppose the logical solution would be to use a ‘proper’ camera to get a shot of the burning chorizo, but not as much fun as keep returning and persevering with the phone until the flames show up!
The chorizo al infierno was popularised by Rafa at Los Barriles and he still does a great one – but more and more tapas bars offer a similar dish these days. This one was at El Redondo – The Round Bar – in calle Gloria. For some reason, though, my camera phone failed to show the huge flames as my sausage sizzled away.
I’ve had friends visiting for the past week so what better excuse to get out to a few tapas bars and restaurants? None really.
This delightful slice was on offer at Calahonda Bakery, calle Puerta del Mar, Nerja, and looked too nice to resist. So I didn’t. Coffee and cake €4.
Perhaps it is a case of tunnel vision, but when I think of cakes I always imagine chocolate, sponge, fruits, cheesecake or, as it was today, carrot cake. I would, and never have until today, considered such things as cabbage, broccoli, asparagus or any other ‘vegetable’ cake.
It almost goes without saying that a trip to Torre del Mar had to include a cake stop. Momentos Cafe looked nice and it turned out to be a good choice. A slice of delicious cake, with cream, and a coffee on the street terrace and only €2.50. Not bad at all.
Strikingly pink, so I just had to see if the taste lived up to the visual aspect. Nice darker, thicker topping, a light, very creamy and fluffy centre, thicker jam layer and tasty base. Overall, much lighter than it maybe looks at first sight and delicious. Anahi, calle Puerta del Mar: €5 for coffee and cake.
After a couple of weeks trying to overcome some sort of debilitating flu, cold, bug, virus, plague or whatever it was, where lethargy was an aspiration and appetite was a faded memory, it was almost joyous to finally see something and actually fancy eating it, even if it was a slice of cake.
I liked the look of this cake, a meringuey-looking creamy lemony cake, so decided to grab one, and a cup of coffee, and sit on the Balcón de Europa for a change as it was quite sunny. Deeelicious it was. Calahonda Bakery in calle Puerta del Mar.
