I had been in Murcia for a few days and having collected my colleague from the airport,.We made our way back to the city. Once he had unpacked his toothbrush, we meandered down the street to Salzillo. This was the venue for our meeting with a supplier we have in the region. He lives nearby and takes no time to promote the local wares.
Dinner, sorry the meeting, was at 10.00, we were seated promptly, no menus, our host set about with some vigour ordering the finest of sharing plates. He then asked his usual meat or fish question, we were then up and running.
The business part of the dinner was concluded within 5 minutes of the food having been ordered. We sat and ate our way through wonderful plate after wonderful plate. Then a hunk of meat arrived, I have obviously misunderstood the plan I thought we were sharing. There was one for each of us!!! The chat continued as did the flow of wine. Just when I thought we were over the waitress appeared laden down with desserts all the plates were placed in the centre of the table, it was help yourself boys. My Spanish colleague has a sweeter tooth than me, which is a feat!!! The look on his face was definitely a "MasterCard" moment. We struggled gamely on. Time was ticking, I had been up since 5 and it was well after midnight, the night broke up shortly afterwards and we eventually headed to our hotel.
Again, the meal was excellent, aided by excellent service.
