Many restaurants offer a full three-course menu for as little as 8 or 10 euros and many bar owners have recognised that the British pound does not go as far as it did a while ago and that there is a need for lower prices in general.
Fortunately some of the landlord have also realised that “fings ain’t wot they used to be” and have reduced rents to help in this time of crisis.
With this help and coupled with careful buying of the basic produce it is possible to create quality meals at economy prices. One establishment that has perfected this art is the Cumbrian Way in the Avenida Telefonica, opposite the hotel Riviera. They offer a range of homemade meals like, Spaghetti Bolognese, Chilli con Carne, Steak and Kidney and Chicken and Mushroom pies to name but a few. Most of these meals are priced at €2.95 with some dishes costing €3.95. There are special dishes every day and not to be missed are “Chicken Tuesday” when a half roast chicken, chips and salad cost just 2.95€ and “Fish and Chip Friday” with a large beer battered Cod, chips and mushy peas costing just 2.95€. (Booking for both these days is advisable).
Liver, Pork chops and other meat dishes are also offered on daily specials and the most popular meat day is Sunday. The Cumbrian Way offers the complete Traditional Sunday Roast, with Beef, Pork or Chicken, roast and mash potatoes, parsnips, peas, carrots and cabbage, cauliflower cheese and homemade Yorkshire pudding for just 4.50€. Try it and see if it is not one of the best you have eaten.
Deserts are not forgotten and the chocolate fudge cake is to die for. Alexander has now joined the Cumbrian Way team having finished his Masters Degree in Heidelberg as a pastry chef and he is looking to add to the range of cakes and pastries available and to offer custom made birthday cakes etc.
The Cumbrian Way is just down the hill from the Hotel Bali, give it a try you will not be disappointed!
