Tapas Thursday

Hey guys this is a post all about the family dinner I had yesterday in Killorglin and I hope you all enjoy it!
Yesterday night my family and I decided to go out for dinner and we decided on two places in the town of Killorglin. For my outfit I went with a simple look featuring my pink chiffon top with black highwaisted jeans. My new chain necklace was one of my accessories and I threw my purple knit cardigan over it because it was warm but it got cooler as the night went on.

Before we had dinner my dad decided that it would be nice to have a drink somewhere else first and he decided to take us to The Killorglin Golf Club and the view there is just amazing. There is a view of the entire Laune river heading off into the sea and the mountains bordering it with clouds sitting onto of them. Here are the photos I took of the view.

20140725-082619-30379316.jpgAfter our drinks we headed into Killorglin town to eat at a Spanish Tapas restaurant called Sol Y Sombra. The restaurant is based in an old church and has been there for a few years now and the food is really good! For the meal we each ordered one or two tapas dishes and just shared them. I ordered a platter of mixed meats and cheese with a little spicy sauce. The meats where Salami, Parma ham and Chorizo (I think thats what it was I’m not too sure!) and the cheese came with this really nice purple triangles which my mum told me is like a solid jam to eat with the cheese it was really nice! My second dish was Squid Rings with Garlic Mayonnaise and they were just so good! I had never had squid before so it was something new and interesting and I will definitely be having it again!

My mum ordered Prawns with Chilli and Garlic which were a little bit spicy sometimes but had really good flavours! I am not a mad lover of prawns myself I can only have a few without going off them but these where really nice and there was only 6 or 7 in the little dish so its not a massive meal of them.

My brother ordered meatballs as he doesn’t really like spicy food and likes to eat what he knows he likes. These were really good too they came in a tomato sauce which was rich but not too heavy or too thin and the meat was perfect proportions and of course being a teenage boy he got a few chips as well. I can safely say there was nothing left in the bowl by the end of it! My father had a Goats Cheese Salad but by the time I remembered to take a photo of his meal and everyone else’s his was half gone!

So if you’re in Kerry and looking for a nice restaurant thats a bit different head over to Sol Y Sombra in Killorglin or the Golf Course for a nice drink or food with a stunning view to try something new.

Hope you all enjoyed this post and are having a good week!
