We returned to Taberna La Alameda in May 2006, intending to have a light lunch.
The waiter knew his stuff though, and persuaded us to try their Paella de Mariscos at 7.50 euros each - and very good it was too ! There were prawns, king prawns, squid, mussels and other shelfish in it, all kept simmering hot in a big pan by the serving hatch.
Taberna La Alameda specialises in fish, and the menu contains many different dishes. To name a few there was :-
Grilled bream, sole, sea bass, swordfish and cuttlefish
Fried squid, cuttlefish, anchovies, merluzzo (Hake) and acedias (Plaice) (thanks Kerry)
Shrimp, lobster, prawns, scallops, mussels....... and more ! And that's just the seafood/fish section !
We also had drinks, coffee, water and the cover charge all included in our bill of 22 euros.
Taberna La Alameda is typical of the bars that make up the Tapa Centro during the Festival. In 2003 we sat outside watching the street theatre, drinking fino and dining on raciones of surtido iberico, gambas and calamares. The raciones were 8 or 8.50 euros each, the fino 1.20 euros a glass, and we had a splendid evening for 33 euros in total.
We returned to Taberna La Alameda in May 2006, and had a great paella. I made quite a lot of notes about their menu, so have produced a seperate tip for this return visit.
Favorite Dish The specialities of this taberna are listed as chacinas, carnes ibericas, and pescados de la bahia ( which loosely translates to sausages, cured meats and seafood).
