I'll be heading to Mojacar next week. It will be my first visit.  I'm hoping to find a proper cup of tea and some proper fish n chips.  Recomendations anyone?

Bar La Cachimba opposite the Hotel Continental at the Garrucha end of Mojacar Playa

Very small bar/restaurant but with excellent home cooked food and proper British tea!

The owner Geoff is a Brit and quite a character

Enjoy

Thanks for that.  I'm booked in for 2 nights, 11th & 12th, in Gran Gonzalez.  If anyone out there is free to socialise I'd be happy to meet you.

I presume Henry means Iceland as that shop in Vera that somehow attracts people from the UK. 

However, he is probably right, inadvertently as the best tea (in my opinion) is in Ireland. Even when we visit the UK we bring our "Irish" tea with us. Nearest in good flavour to ours is Yorkshire tea. 

I recommend that if you can't buy tea boxed in Ireland to bring your own Yorkshire tea. 

Fish 'n' Chips that are good value can be had at the Irish Rover (Mojacar Playa). You probably won't meet any Irish there as it is probably the largest English Bar in all of Southern Spain.

Regards

Matt (from Ireland)

Spot On! CarolAnn. We lived in the UK for a couple of years and used to buy Barrys Tea in the "ethnic" section of supermarkets. We wouldn't travel anywhere without Barrys. 

I must say though, Yorkshire Tea is a good 2nd Best. 

I must be turning into a Panama Hatted gent. use a china teacup too.

Ooooooooooooooh! Parsley . . . . . I was trying to keep some of our secrets from the Brits . . . . . I thought they'd have to employ somebody like Alan Turing to break Paddy Tea Code . . . . the secret is out!
