On the 1st November 2018, our neighbouring town of Fuengirola kicks off the 10th edition of the “Ruta de la Tapa Erótica” (Erotic Tapas Route), a simple and original idea which, since the first edition, has become a reference all over Spain.
Up until the 18th November, visitors to Fuengirola will be able to enjoy this traditional Spanish snack, with a slightly “spicy” touch. This year, the route sees over 72 different establishments take part, each preparing a sensual and fun tapa, with creativity and flair being the main ingredients. This year, some of the participating establishments will also be offering special ‘gluten-free’, sweet or vegetarian tapas.
Anyone who visits one of the participating restaurants or bars will be able to sample one of these “erotic” tapas and a cool beer (or glass of wine) for a – very reasonable – €2.50. If you choose one of the sweet dessert tapas available in some establishments, you can choose to accompany it with a coffee, tea or sweet wine.
If you visit the Erotic Tapas Route, you’ll have the chance to enter a fun competition; all you have to do is pick up a “Tapaporte” (special tapas passport) at the Tourist Office or in participating establishments. Once you’re equipped with your passport, the objective is to get it stamped every time you try a different tapa. 40,000 of the ‘Tapaportes’ will be handed out during the Tapas Route and they are available in Spanish and English.
The aim of the competition is to complete the passport with the stamps of 10 different establishments and vote on a favourite tapa. Once the passport is full, you have to hand it in at the Tourist Office to be entered into the fantastic prize draw; these are some of the great prizes you can win: Yamaha Motorcycle, 60″ TV, PS4 with virtual reality headset, Trip to Tangiers, hotel stays, restaurant meals and lots more!
