La Mirada La Zenia Beach

You've probably heard me talk about La Mirada before or seen some pictures shared on my Instagram page as La Mirada is still one of our go-to places for coffee/breakfast/lunch and even dinner too.

For the last 6 or 7 years ever since we first bought our house on the Costa Blanca South and even now when we've moved a little bit further up to Pilar de la Horadada, La Mirada at La Zenia beach is somewhere we still love to visit regularly. 

Name & locationRestaurante La Mirada, Paseo del Mar 2, Urb. La Zenia 03189 
                                         (situated next door to Hotel Servigroup La Zenia)

To Eat ~ We love Tapas. Such a huge variety. Magra con tomate is my favourite and Mark loves the      Calamari alla romana. The meatballs and garlic prawns are very tasty and their patatas fritas (chips) are really good as well. I can also recommend the Chicken caesar salad and the pizzas. We are also partial to stopping by for a breakfast croissant, usually ham & cheese and a café con leche too.

What we like ~ The location is fabulous. Right on the beach with beautiful sea views from pretty much every where you sit. There is a huge terrace which at the moment with Covid that's a major plus that we can be nicely spaced out. The food has always been consistently good. We also find La Mirada good value for money and the service is very good too. Our waitress Ana always remembers us and gives us a friendly welcome.

Today we had & cost ~ 2 x coca cola lights, pan and alioli, calamari alla romana, magra con tomate and patatas fritas. €26.35. 

La Mirada also has a large pool which is the perfect place to relax during the Summer. You can read my post about it here.

Read more on my  Disclaimer/Contact  page ~ Since writing the post ' Blogging tips ~ Basic/Beginners'   I keep thinking about the part about choosing a name for your blog. If you've been here a while you'd know that this blog was originally called Suncream and Sparkles ~ which I have written about why I changed my blog name  here . Even though I do love my new blog name and I don't regret changing it I do wish I had taken more time and consideration in the very beginning when first starting my blog, or at least before buying the domain. You see blogging, even now for me who's been doing it for a fair few years, it really is a constant learning curve where you're always discovering new ways and new ideas to tweak and improve your blog.

Mil Palmeras

Happy Thursday guys, hope you're all well. I'm just popping on here to show you a few pictures I snapped quickly today while we were at Mil Palmeras Beach. We popped to Mercadona this morning, well more lunchtime(ish) as we are sleeping in so much lately, but that's for another day. So, we picked up a few bits for the weekend and grabbed one of their sushi boxes for our lunch on the go. fyi , the best supermarket sushi I've had! After our trip to Mercadona we headed for Leroy Merlin in La Zenia as we needed to get some more bags of sand and some gravel too for our little diy garden project. I say little, but it's turning into quite the construction! Keep an eye on my  insta stories   over the weekend for updates. En-route to Leroy's we stopped off at Mil Palmeras to eat our sushi by the sea. Mil Palmeras has always been one of our favourite places here on the Costa Blanca South. Actually it was one of the first places we went to after the lockdown last year.  To

Looking for compounds in Riyadh

When Mark was first offered the job in Saudi, actually even before that when we were waiting in anticipation for the job to be offered we knew our first choice of accommodation in Riyadh would be on a western compound. We wanted our new place to be a home from home. Even though we have no problem whatsoever with following dress codes or anything and it actually doesn’t bother us in the slightest covering up. We sometimes, because of the world we’re from, being a westerner we wanted that little bit of ‘normality’ from our home life that we’re used too. We like to go on walks in the evening so it’s nice to be able to just pop on your shorts and vest and go for a walk without thinking and also being able to pop to the mini market for a pint of milk and a loaf of bread. Probably one of the biggest reasons for us to live on a compound is that we like to swim, sunbathe and be at the pool together. Which for us is a big part of our life. Another thing we like about compound living is the esca
