FINOS AT THE WATERFRONT - TAPAS BAR & GRILL.


On a very miserable damp evening I was transported into the Catalonian area of Spain with the help of delicious food and great wines.

You have probably guessed I was at FINOS TAPAS BAR where I was at an evening based on the food of the Catalonian area and it was just fabulous.

Each course was accompanied by a carefully chosen wine which was introduced and described by the wine supplier.

The first course would be my favourite to take to a desert island was scallops, but with a twist, as they were topped with what seemed like haggis. This was followed by a deep fried medley of hake, king prawns and calamari in a Alhambra beer batter served with a citrus Alioli, It was simply delicious and moreish!!

I had mixed feelings as I read the description of the next course which were Pig's cheeks on a Oxtail reduction, my fears were quickly dispelled as I tasted the delicious unctuous meat that had been cooked long and slow.and just melted in your mouth.

By this time I was feeling rather full but when the wooden board arrived with the fabulous display of charcuterie I was soon tempted to taste yet again. My favourite was the Iberico Chorizo which was so different to the type that is available in local stores, it had a deep smokiness to it. All this was accompanied by toasted almonds and fresh figs

Next was the most interesting cheese slate dotted with flavoured olives yum yum.

I never thought I could be tempted to a desert after the many courses but once again I succombed and was blown away by the mousse that contained sherry soaked raisins and the most delicious chocolate terrine and yes more..... the Santiago tart served with orange sorbet.

however, what will always remain in my thoughts were the tiny pearls that decorated the dessert plate which when you bit in them released a flavour of gorgeousness!!!

The various wines were equally wonderful and were chosen with great care to accompany each course..

Bob Warrior the charming host is planning to hold this type of evening each month majoring on a different area of Spain and I would definitely urge you to book your place as I feel sure you will not be disappointed.
