Tapas at Axsuntxu on Mojacar Playa
Tapas and beer, those two words seem to sit together quite well; like cheese and pickle or pancakes and maple syrup or chocolate and mountain.
Axsuntxu is a new tapas bar on Mojacar Playa and it's got off to a flying start. The food is terrific, location excellent (just opposite the beach) and the staff friendly.
First the food. I've had several tapas here and have not been disappointed. The boquerones are delightful and not too salty, and the peppers packed with tuna is a must. One of the highlights is the mouth watering seafood tapas - lots of squid, octopus, mussels, and a few things I don't actually know the name of.
We enjoyed our tapas with a few glasses of cold beer outside facing the sea. Inside is for the serious drinkers. Each table has its own beer pump so you can serve yourself when you like. A computer screen on the wall monitors how much each table has had.
Well it saves you from getting up to the bar when it's your turn to buy a round. [more ]
