Me and my wife were looking for a good, reasonably priced meal on a tuesday evening, and chanced upon El Tapeo after wandering the empty streets of Clitheroe. We were not disappointed. We were the first in and were looked after by the very attentive staff. We chose a couple of dishes from the menu, only to be told that one of them was 'off' due to a busy weekend, and the other was only cooked for two, either ordered in advance, or by waiting 45-60 minutes. As this was a paella, this was reasonable and meant that it would have been cooked fresh and not just heated up from cold. When I looked more carefully at the menu, this was actually mentioned, so my fault! So we both chose the our second choice - the same as it happens, which was Zorza con patatas (pork with potatoes). But first we started with a tapas platter for two, comprising a selection of cured meats and cheese, which was very tasty and prepared our taste buds for the meal to come.
The Zorza was delicious. It was marinaded pork pieces cooked on skewers with pepper and onion, on a bed of potato pieces fried in oil with parsley and garlic. The portions were huge and Mrs B was offered a doggy bag to take her left overs home, which we accepted!
We still found room for a dessert, I managed Ice cream with chocolate sauce and Mrs B had fondue chocolate with churros to dip in which finished off the meal splendidly.
The meal was washed down with a very acceptable rose.
The bill was very reasonable and the staff couldn't have been more helpful.
