It's not like you need an excuse to go out for a meal with friends. However, Pam and I first came to live in Bigastro 15 years ago and so we invited Pepe and Eladia to join us at Bar Pujante yesterday for a celebratory lunch.
Little did we suspect that they would mark the occasion by preparing a delicious soplillo, complete with candles, for us.
For those of you who have not tried this local speciality, we highly recommend it.
A huge thanks to Eladia and Pepe, you are the best neighbours and friends anyone could wish for.
As for the rest of the meal: Bar Pujante have two set menus. We chose the one below but then substituted calamares in batter for the meat balls.
