Luckily there is more than one restaurant on Charlotte Street and myself and the girls decided to have our pre-Cazgoingonholiday catch-up in Navarro's - a little family run Spanish tapas restaurant just over the road from the sausage place that can't be bothered to open (not bitter).
Walking into Navarro's is a bit like walking into a Spanish living room. I was hit by how cosy and homely as soon as I walked in. There are little pots displayed along the walls and cute tables and chairs painted with little Flamenco dancers.
As you do with tapas, we ordered a good few dishes to share between us; patatas bravas, Spanish omelette, grilled sardines, fried squid, meatballs, prawns and cod. Obviously I could give you the lovely Spanish names for all those dishes (Bacaloa a La Rotena, for example - the cod) which would make it all sound a little less simple. But I'm not going to.
The food here is simple authenticity and inexpensive. Nothing massively original or mind-blowing but it's fresh and tasty with that homemade touch. It's a great choice for a catch up with friends or family which is probably why all the pretty tables were taken by the time we were leaving. Not bad for a Monday night.
I think I'll just take them all.
And the colours this holiday will be bright!
Do you think someone is going to miss me?
