This is Brad from Atlanta with a personalised bottle label made by Esteban at Vermutería Yo Soy Tu Padre. I had popped over for “just one” as it’s such a cosy spot and it’s close to my house. Plus Esteban is one of my favourite people. Did we actually close the bar and end up in Triana until the wee hours? Photo evidence on my phone says we did. 😉
Yet another Twitter/Instagram Pal, Paul @pauljwhite is from Newcastle but he spends a lot of time travelling, especially to Spain. We first met in person earlier this year when he was in Sevilla and he’s been back a couple of times since. And guess what? He loves doing Tapas Research!
He was also very helpful this time because one of our dishes arrived way overcooked. As I had already *ahem* mentioned a couple of other things to the waiter I asked Paul if he could send back the offending tapa. Well, Paul speaks next to no Spanish, and the waiter spoke no English, so I called the waiter over and just pointed to Paul, who picked up a piece of the dried out solomillo with such a perfect scowly face and kind of shook the dead meat around… that plate was removed SO FAST and was quickly replaced with a perfectly cooked version. Ha.
Looking forward to Paul’s next visit in January, and to meeting his daughter Molly. 🙂
