Erotic Tapas Route of Fuengirola 2017


It has been a while since we last talked about gastronomy here on the blog of Hotel Florida Spa, so this week we are delighted to announce the arrival of the popular Erotic Tapas Route of Fuengirola.

Due to its success this will be its 9th edition, as since it first started in 2009 the number of visitors who come to town to experience it has well increased.

This year the Erotic Tapas Route will start this Friday, the 3rd of November, and will be on till Sunday the 19th of November; All participant establishments will offer a tapa and a drink for a fixed price of 2,50€.   

By the way, Rivera Beach Club that belongs to our sister hotel, Hotel Yaramar, will participate once again, for the 4th year in a row, in this fun food contest with an amazing tapa.

The tapa is called “Mons Venus”, has been created with love by chef Salvador, and it has watercress, fried squid, parmesan oil and onion jam as main ingredients… it sounds beautiful, right?

We would like to wish Salvador and all the staff in the Rivera Beach all the best. We are sure they will end up in a very high position.

If you have the fortune of currently being on holiday at Hotel Florida Spa and got a bit hungry and a bit curious after reading this post, Salvador and the rest of his team will be delighted to see you at the Rivera Beach Club.

Bon appétit!

“Malaga en la Mesa” Tapas Route


As you know, here at Hotel Florida Spa we love eating and we really appreciate good food.

Because of this and because we are big fans of tapas this week we recommend you not to miss the amazing Tapas Route organised by the culinary newspaper supplement of Diario Sur. In this route not only establishments from Malaga city will participate, but also bars and restaurantes from 11 other places in Costa del Sol, and good news…Fuengirola is one of them!

In Fuengirola the only participant establishment is a popular tapas bar among locals and tourists called “El Pasillo de Jesús”, a small tapas bar located in Calle España, close to the promenade and about 10 minutes away by foot from our hotel.

“El Pasillo de Jesús” participates in this culinary competition with a delicious tartar which mains ingredients are Malaga sausage and dairy products made with goat milk.

By preparing this kind of tapa they are trying to prove that by using great local products is possible to create amazing food.

The price of the tapas that participate in this competition is between 3 and 5 euros and they will be available for customers to try until Sunday the 28th of May, as this is the last day of the competition.

If you are currently on holiday at Hotel Florida Spa and you fancy some tapas, we recommend you to try the tapa designed for this competition by “El Pasillo de Jesús”.

We tried it and certainly enjoyed it!
