- ‘Lime and Lemon’ – Benalmadena, Spain
I am back home.
I was gallivanting for more than 3 months in Europe, I spent a lot of time with my family and friends in France, England and Spain.
While in Spain I discovered that little gem that I wanted to share with you.
Let’s be straight, I was in south of Spain, Benalmadena to be precise which is close to Malaga and frankly, food wise it was hard to find what we all call Spanish food : tapas !
This small city, warm enough all year long to attract a lot of less fortunate people in term of weather, is charming and very everything but Spanish at least on the coast side where I stayed. It was very Moroccan (Tangier is a few breaststroke away), French, American…
I even had an English breakfast by the sea ! I have excuses, there are 2 reasons for that :
1) I was very frustrated that the only English breakfast I had in London a few days before was dull and I hate frustration
2) I was very hangover as the night before we had to celebrate our reunion, my friend and I, and you know how it gets sometimes…yes, a bit wild…
So in this no so Spanish town, I heard about ‘Lime and Lemon’ as the place to be.
I had croquetas (people who know me know that I love croquettes) they were small and great enough to put 2 at once in the mouth and 2 other dishes that were not on the menu but on the chef’s daily special. I don’t want to excite your senses for nothing as you might not be able to have the same while there but it was so good.
Dinner ended with a mix of different little dessert, the kind of ‘café gourmand’ Spanish way (lucky me).
It’s fresh, delicious, sophisticated but not stilted, owned by a young happy-funny team, so if you’re craving for original tapas, good wine to pair with and lovely service, if I were you, I would definitely go.
