The Big Move – The Heart of Torrox and La Plaza

Lars and I live on the edge of the small town of Torrox; yet, thanks to a few shortcuts we are also close to the heart of this place, the Plaza de la Constitucion.

The Plaza is quite small as you can see and hosts a handful of bars and restaurants. Lars and I have lost our heart to one that is conveniently called La Plaza.

The restaurant opens at 9am and closes late in the evening, every day of the week. The two most interesting items on their extensive menu are:

  1. Chocolate con churros for 3 euros only.
  2. Tapas menu: 7 different tapas + 1 bottle of wine or 1 litre of beer for 10 euros.

I have item 1 for breakfast almost every day and at least once a week Lars and I eat their tapas. Other restaurants offer more or less the same tapas menu, but when it comes to both quality and quantity, La Plaza is the best. If you order bread and garlic sauce, you can easily share this menu for two at lunch or even dinner. By the way, the tapas change regularly.

Nowadays, the Plaza de la Constitucion looks like this.

Colours of the Spanish flag, of course! I have to admit that it is nice to have some extra shadow…

    It looks like a lovely place to be.

      It sure is! When Lars and I saw this Plaza, we felt immediately at home.

    Food and atmosphere all look pleasing. Lars is looking great, say HI for me.
