COUNCILLOR for Tourism, Fanny Serrano, has presented the XV edition of the Ruta de la Tapa that began yesterday (Thursday) and goes on to Sunday December 3 in Torrevieja. A truly gastronomic event that will see 45 venues participating and offering an amazing selection of 180 very varied tapas.
Among a sample of the sumptuous offerings during the 11 day event were a number of interesting combinations turning popular foods – such as the humble hamburger or the kebab – into gourmet items. The presentation has been excellent and many of the restaurants taking part have prepared tapas suitable for celiac sufferers.
The commitment to using meat as in integral part of the tapas continues, always combining with a myriad of sauces of different flavours and sensations to satisfy the taste buds. Seafood is also an important element that brings the city’s fishing culture to highlight their produce with some interesting tapas with grilled fish as the base.
Price is €2 for a ‘normal’ tapa and €2.50 for the ‘gourmet’ offerings, both including drinks. The hours of the trail are from 12 noon to 4.30pm and in the evening from 7.30pm to 11pm.
Those who participate in this event will be able to vote for their favourite tapas through the Ruta de la Tapa Torrevieja app, freely available for both iOS and Android.
