Fuengirola

02maalis

The weather here might be absolutely brilliant, but it is winter after all, so there is nothing better than having some lovely comfort food, and this is why Fuengirola organizes the popular food route called “La Cazuela de la Abuela” around this time of year.

This year in fact will be its 9th edition and many local bars and restaurants will participate in it. From Friday the 6th till Sunday the 22nd of March they all will offer a delicious casserole and a drink (glass of wine, beer, soft drink or water) for only 2,50€.

As in the past 8 years, the Rivera Beach Club, which belongs to our sister hotel Hotel Yaramar, will also participate this year with a tasty bean and seafood casserole that has tomato, peppers, garlic, beans, squid, mussels and langoustinesas main ingredients… It sounds lovely, right?

If you are currently on holiday in Hotel Florida Spa, your hotel in Fuengirola, and love Spanish food we certainly recommend you to try the new amazing casserole chef Salvador from the Rivera Beach Club has prepared for you all this year and to vote for it!

We also would like to wish Salvador best of luck and hope becomes a finalist as in some of the past editions!

As you know at Hotel Florida Spa we love good food, so this week on our blog we would like to recommend you the excellent gourmet route organised by the Mijas Council.  

After the great success of last year, this second edition of the gourmet route started on the 10th of January and will be on until Sunday the 10th of March.

7 well-known restaurants in Mijas Pueblo participate in it (La Fuente, Restaurante Fiesta, Mesón de Fede, Chema’s Terrace, Maguiñez, RestauranteTriana y Koko Bistro) and for a fixed price of 19 euros per person each of these restaurants offer a full menu that consists of a starter, a main dish, a dessert and some wine.  

A gourmet passport will be given to those who order the gourmet menus. The passports will have to be handed in at the tourist office of Mijas or La Cala for a chance to participate in a draw.

If you love tasting new things while on holiday, you have the fortune of being currently here and you were also planning to visit Mijas, we certainly recommend you give a try to this fabulous gourmet route.
