A new initiative by the catering establishments and backed by the town hall in Alhaurín de la Torre hopes to give local businesses a boost. It consists of a tapas route which will offer potato-based tapas and a drink for 2.90 euros. The route is open until 8 November and there will be prizes to win for customers that take part, according to the town's mayor, Joaquín Villanova.
"In these difficult times which have been especially hard for businesses and the catering industry, we need to get involved in promoting and helping them to emerge stronger from this situation," he said.
A passport for stamps and a list of the participating businesses and their tapas will be available from the establishments themselves and from the tourist office on Calle Álamos. Customers who eat in at least five of the locations will be able to collect a gift from the tourist office in the form of a set of wooden kitchen implements, depending on the stamps they have collected.
Each bar or restaurant will also be offering a gift to its clients. The caterers have taken advantage of this project to give free rein to their creativity and each one of them has chosen how to present the tapa made with fried, boiled or roasted potatoes.
The catering establishments taking part are: Poppins Coffee & Restaurant, Bar La Sonrisa, La Fabrik, The Monaghan's Pub, La Terraza de Hidrocarburos, Restaurante El Limonar, Café Bar Mi Rincón, Restaurante Dêjá Vu, La Cantina, Infinity Gastrobar, Strato Gastrobar, Bar La Baranda, Rialto Italiano Ristaorante, Quest Cervecería, Rincón Ibérico, Mesón Casa Antonio, Sergio Mejías Gastrobar, Hamburguesería Gerani, Venta La Porrita and Restaurante Torre de Vega.
