A taste of Spain at Ocean Café - in Bristol

After my visit in April to Valencia I have to admit to having fallen in love with all things Spanish, so Ocean Café in Bristol was the natural place to celebrate my birthday with friends.

The Café opens in the morning for a late breakfast of Bocadillo de Bacon (that great British favourite) and goes on into the evening for Tapas and Paella. We sampled a set menu of all the favourite Tapas - Jamon, meatballs, Patatas Bravas and Calamari followed by Paella and Churros with chocolate sauce for dessert. Unfortunately I was enjoying the food so much that I forgot to take many photos of it before it disappeared.

Sounds very similar to a great Spanish restaurant here in Boston: Bar Lola. The tapas, paella, and sangria are all amazing!

There's another Spanish restaurant in Boston called Tasca and they have LIVE Flamenco performances to accompany dinner. I truly enjoy discovering all types of international cuisine in my own city...sounds like you're reliving your great experience in Valencia with "a little taste of Spain in Bristol"!

Women always fall for all things spanish! :)

That cafe looks lovely. If it's not too expensive, maybe we could head down when I come and visit. I leave for London on Monday and will call you sometime next week.

You should tell the family story to The Wide Wide World. They are about to take their children on a RTW too.
