Branigans Torremolinos – Beer Tasting & Sri Lanken food

 

Another amazing day!!
We started the day around 1pm central torremolinos in Guinns and drank some of our ale – the rubber soul!
We moved over to Branigans at 2.30pm for Sri Lanken food and was presented with drinks promptly and our starters started coming – Sri Lanken chicken salad

Amazing food really tasty then we moved in to the main which was off the scale!!

Absolutely amazing collection of flavors!
We also had a beer tasting set up for our own craft ale called rubber soul. We gave all club members a free bottle if they wanted one so handed out 18 and we had positive feed back about our new ale which is fantastic!! We finished the day with a few laughs and beers in Guinns
Me and Lisa would like to thank our good friends for support on this day, this was a big day for us!!!
We had the TV crew with us but you’ll see more about this later….

The Rubber Soul is amazing

The View – Torremolinos

 

Another absolutely fantastic day but with a view! We started the day of in borsalino in Torremolinos Montemar. It’s the first time I visited and we chose this bar as all the other bars near are closed till about 4! and this one opens from 8am in the morning! I have to say it’s a fantastic little cafe bar! Lovely place, lovely wine and food and lovely owners! Lovely lovely lovely!

If your in the area I’d highly recommend also I got some free tapas with my well priced wine and the food is bang on 👌
We moved on for the usual 2.30pm to the view, we took the scenic route down the beach which was stunning

we arrived at the view with the room set out for the lunch club crew. The service in the view is amazing and started on a seperate bill which the lunch club gives high rating for! Served up fast with quality wine chilled to perfection

The food started moving fast we pre ordered this to make easier for the chef Eion. Seeing the food come out was amazing the quality and presentation is the best! I had fish chips and mushy peas and tartare sauce which I don’t usually eat but this tartare sauce was bang on! And the fish and mushy peas well!!…

I was very tempted for the apple pie and custard but the main finished me off!! I have to say the view has it all great service, beverages and prices and the food and views are the best – highly recommend!
We moved onto mosquito chiringuito for end of the day mojito and a few laughs!

Another fantastic day here are the days highlights.

Questions? Answers…

 

We had a few questions on a email this morning regarding the lunch club. Here are some answers!

How long has the lunch club been running? Roughly 4 years now
Who created the group? Me & Lisa created the group in Los Ridos and have managed and maintained the group for four years.
Are you Monday Club? We was originally Monday Club but to stop confusion we rebranded to The lunch Club around a year or so ago.
How many members do you have? We roughly have around 25 people who come every week who change each week, we have international returning members and would guess around 150 different people who have attended I’m going to build a database
Do you make any money from the lunch club? No we don’t make a penny it basically costs us to pay for the website and hosting etc, cards and other things we pay this out if our pockets. Some of the restaurants give us a bottle of wine for bringing in the club so in return I give them a in depth review. But we are none profit.
Is there a fee to join? No
What’s age group ? Any age to be honest we have all ages

sabores club – Torremolinos

 

We started the day in RJ’s which we had a couple of problems ! Some of our members got lost with the google map which is wrong for some reason, we have no connection but we are sorry if the venues send you to the wrong location! You would have to talk to the venue regarding and wrong directions! Then when one of our members came we had to change tables so we grabbed a chair for him to sit down as he is elderly but the waiter basically ripped it away from him and put it back to a empty table and left him to stand so Lisa donated her chair, we find this very rude and we have hit this place with the strike list I’m afraid!
We moved onto Club Sabores for well priced food & wine. We had a problem with our bill but was quickly corrected.

We moved onto El mojito for a couple of wines to finish up the day.
