Apparently it's been a long time since I met up with my friend Miss Money. Well, I last saw her in March, so it's not that long really! It was my decision to decide where to go to, and so I gave her the choice of what to eat... Korean, Japanese, Spanish, Indian, Italian or Thai... She hates spicy foods unfortunately. :( Lots of my close friends don't seem to like spicy foods!
In the end it was a choice of Japanese or Spanish. We chose Spanish. Miss Money has not had Spanish food before!! And the only place I know of that does Spanish food is La Tasca served by actual Spanish people (there are other places, but I have never been to them). The one near Oxford Street is closed and the one in St Jame's Street was a bit far from where were meeting up. So we ended up in Covent Garden. It's not hard to find La Tasca in Maiden Street. When you see TGI Friday's, then you know you are near it.
From the window we thought there was no one inside, as no one was seated at the window. But as we went in, there is a bigger dining area at the back. (Sorry for the quality of the photos... not great with an LG phone - but I now have a secondhand Samsung SG4 phone which I bought as my previous phone wasn't insured :( ... Now I have to start saving big time!).

I have only been to La Tasca twice, and usually the people I'm with order for the entire table. I think Miss Money wanted to spend less, but eat different things. I couldn't recommend much except for the seafood paella and the chorizo. So in the end, we had the "Chef's Recommends". That meant we would spend £15 each minus drinks.

What's in the Chef's Special? Quite a variety of things. Anybody who hasn't had Spanish food I think should have this as it introduces spicy and non-spicy elements of Spanish food...
