No must go for something lower than a diamond……….. – MOONINSPAIN


We actually don’t want to go away our neighbourhood for nice tapas. We’ve “La Noticia” which is at all times the right selection once we need to maintain it native. I’ll write about them someday quickly! However, once we are downtown we at all times go to “Los Diamantes”. I’ve been having tapas at Los Diamantes since I moved to Granada. Thirty years in the past there was just one location on Calle Navas and the folks would overflow into the again and aspect alleys with beers and small plates in hand. They might shut after they ran out of recent fish. Now, there are seven areas in Granada and in a small adjoining city. They’re all equally scrumptious and can by no means fail to serve up the very best fried fish and different delicacies.

Certainly one of my favourites is the half tomato and half “cogollos” salad. Completely seasoned with olive oil and salt (extra salt, extra beer ordered) and the child lettuce hearts are additionally topped with crispy fried garlic. Implausible! It jogs my memory of the escarole and pomegranate salad I put together each fall.

The opposite day we determined to order the grilled tuna to chop down on our fried meals consumption. The straightforward grilled tuna is served together with some “pimientos de padrón” which helped kill some my eager for Galicia. We are saying, ¨pimientos de padrón, unos pican, otros no.¨ Some are spicy and a few aren’t. The padrón peppers have been supposedly introduced from South America to Galicia by Franciscan monks. The monks started to reap these peppers at their monastery within the Hebrón, a neighbourhood within the city of Padrón in Galicia. Since 1978 there’s a yearly competition devoted to the pepper and its farmers.

Keep in mind that whenever you go to Los Diamantes you’ll be able to survive on tapas alone. With every drink you’ll be served one in every of their specialties of fried shrimp, eggplant, anchovies, marinated dogfish or their particular rice. However, it’s enjoyable to order one thing additional to share along with your group of buddies. Stomach as much as the bar and benefit from the nonstop leisure and interplay between the servers and prospects.
