Cari elegantly chugging bubbly out of a plastic glass .. We had to conform to the rules and swap glass for plastic before enetering the movie theatre!
We wait in anticipation for the movie to begin - it started about 45 minuted late because of some technical issues - typically Aussie!
The movie was fabulous - I loved it and we were all famished with the delay and all - it was finally time for some tapas! We walked across the city, ( very long walk I must add in 3 inch stilleto's Sex in the City style!) to 140 Gouger Street and popped into Mesa Lunga to enjoy a Girls Night on the town.
Cheers - Amy with her ginger beer infused cocktail, Cari with a Dirty Martini that the waiter had never heard of (that should give you an idea of his expertise with the bar and service!) and I decided in keeping with the Spanish theme to try the Rosada Sangria with blushing fruity tones of peach - not bad at all! We ordered several tapas to sample and well chomp on - coz we were bloody hungry. We started with the Chorizo picante (spicy Spanish sausage with olives and almonds).
This was my fav - the Gambas al ajillo (prawns in sizzling oil with chilli and garlic), the sauce at the bottom of the pan was wonderful - just wished there was more bread to scoop it up!
Croquetas - I was not entirely exicted about these when we ordered them - but they were fantastic little deep, fried bombs of bechamel sauce, and when you bit into the crisp outer shell the creamy, white sauce oozed and melted in your mouth - heaven!
We moved onto some Sepltre Barossa Valley Red Sparkling Shiraz that was suprisingly full bodied - really good wine I thought and relished our chirizo and anchovi pizza.
We eneded up drinking two bottles of red between us and then heading to Cari's for some Shemay Belgian Beer - there's a first time for everything!
