I was so happy to go back to La Union, Spain, last week and enjoy the company of my much missed friends. I flew into the new Corvera Airport, and with hand luggage only, I quickly disembarked to a great few days away.
My friends were waiting for me and I was also lucky enough to go out with lots of them to a couple of restaurants I hadn’t tried before, as well as a few old favourites.
I was pleasantly surprised to see that the Panaderia El Garbanzal, Calle Murcia, 44, 30360 La Union, Murcia, has been extensively refurbished since my last visit in January. It has a fresh feel to the place, and has different tapas to take away each day.
On my first full day, I visited again the Café Mayor on the Calle Mayor, with Dianne and Sandie. We had a great meal of pork medallions and wine, and it was lovely.
On the second day, I went to Restaurante Asia in San Javier with Maria and Mel, and what a bargain!! 7 euros, 95 for a glass of sangria on arrival, choice of four starters, lots of mains to choose from (I had duck with hot sauce), ice cream, brandy, and half a bottle of wine each!! Where else in the world can you get value like that?!
With the temperature steadily rising, Antonio’s on the Los Nietos beach was my final meal out, with Dianne, and we couldn’t have picked a nicer day. I had chicken paella at 10 euros, with a lovely bottle of wine. The sun was shining, the birds were singing, and with a journey time of 13 minutes on my favourite “baby” train, it took no time at all to get to what must be one of the most beautiful places ever.
Thank you La Union and friends for yet another lovely trip. I can’t wait until my next one.
