Being away from Spain for extended periods of times makes me nostalgic for all things Spanish.
Especially when you FaceTime your parents sitting in 40ºC whilst you are wrapped up from head to toe in warm clothes, it's raining outside and it's August in England.
After a little research and endless days yearning for some fried calamares and gambas pil pil, I found Antonio's on TripAdvisor.
A kind Spanish expat named Antonio had opened up his own restaurant in Fareham serving the delights of Spanish cuisine right on the High Street's door.
It had some pretty good reviews and some authentic-looking-Spanish-food photos so my chap and I decided to go there for some early dinner on Saturday evening.
After about twenty minutes in the car, a few wrong turns and a few crossed words, we arrived.
So we ordered three.
Gambas al alajillo (garlic prawns), fried calamares and fried whitebait with alioli (garlic mayonnaise)
Oh it was heaven and the sauce reminded me of home!
Not exactly Spanish but... it was filled with calamares and seafood and prawns so I will let him off (this time).
Or maybe that was just me!
