Where To Eat in Los Alcázares & Surrounds – Part 2 of 2

Dec 15, 2014

The Mercadona Square at Los AlcázaresThis is a guest article from David Buse a long time resident of the Los Alcázares area.

Tapas Around Los Alcázares

For tapas I would recommend the Complejo Deportivo Municipal, yes the little restaurant at the Sports Centre in my, and many others opinion, does the best tapas in town and an excellent Menu del Día for lunchtimes only.

La Tropical in the centre of the old town serves very good tapas and is also a full menu restaurant where you can enjoy your food al fresco or in its atmospheric restaurant area decorated with a photo mural of by-gone.

Try Rojiaos, Spinach Stew Recipe – Spanish Recipe from Moratalla

Moratalla Town House

Moratalla Town House

When we started work on the La Murta village cookery book we wanted to include recipes from as many families as possible. This meant that some of our contributors lived here in La Murta but may have come from different places – like me for example, I have a recipe included in the book. This recipe, Rojiaos, comes from the town of Moratalla, in the North West of the region of Murcia. The husband of the cook was born in the small fallen down house that I can see from my window as I type. His wife, María Cruz, was born in Moratalla. This recipe is a marriage of vegetables from the huerta here in Murcia and the flavours of the campo.

It’s an excellent recipe for sharing with groups of friends on a sunny winter’s day. As with many of the recipes from the book it scales well, just get a bigger pan and add more ingredients!

Restaurants in Los Alcázares & Surrounds

There is no better place to eat anywhere along the Costa Cálida than Los Alcázares, both for choice and quality. Los Alcázares is easily divided into two distinct areas that begin at the roundabout close to El Arbol. The modern part is to the North and the old part of town to the South. Most bars and restaurants are centred on Mercadona Square and the Avenida Rio Nalón. I have travelled extensively and there are few areas, of this size, that can offer such a varied selection of cuisine at such constant high quality.

Recipe for Mackerel in Brine – Receta de Estornino en Escabeche – Spanish Recipe

Nov 27, 2014

When I first moved to Spain I frequently saw tins of fish in escabeche or mussels in escabeche in the supermarkets, but I never really liked the look of them. I’m quite an adventurous eater, but the tins didn’t really catch my attention and when I tried them I wasn’t that impressed. When my friend Nasi said she wanted to cook Estornino en Escabeche for the La Murta cookery book I was intrigued. Would this be different, would it change my mind?

I think escabeche is a Marmite type dish, you either love it or hate it. I love it, when it’s home made!

Nasi making Escabeche

Escabeche is found all around the Mediterranean, it is usually made with fish or seafood (sometimes with chicken, game or rabbit) and consists of an acidic marinade of vegetables & vinegar. This recipe works well with any oily fish – mackerel, herring or bonito. It is often served cold the next day after the flavours have had plenty of time to be absorbed. Make sure you have plenty of fresh Spanish bread for dipping in the sauce!
