If you are a lover of good old English fish and chips, stayed tuned. Even more so if you live in Spain.
In the main area of Los Narejos next to Los Alcazares, Murcia, you will find a pleasant walk way lined with restaurants, cafes and bars of all persuasions mingling with the usual gift shops, boutiques and stores.
All of the eating houses offer a wide range of foods and the style depends upon whether you want a high-class restaurant, a snack bar or something in between.
Pearl’s Plaice seems to fall into the last category. It is not a high class restaurant and its seating capacity is limited which is why, like most of its competitors, it has seating in the pedestrian area. It certainly isn’t a snack bar.
The menu is very much what you would expect in that area catering mainly for the British ex-patriot community. As such, the choice is quite broad and I’m sure very good. I won’t waste time on that aspect as I love my fish and chips.
What do they say? “If it’s worth having, it’s worth waiting for”. Well, you will have you wait as everything is cooked to order. It’s surely no problem to sit and relax with a glass of whatever you fancy.
The fish and chips come in various types but, importantly so, in size of portions – small, large and medium. Accordingly priced, naturally.
My trips to this area usually amount to four times a year. My wife and I usually try and have at least one meal at Pearl’s per visit. We have yet to be disappointed.
Prices are competitive locally and the service is homely and friendly.
If you are a “F & C” addict and are in the area, give it a go. You won’t regret it.
Please note that our visits have always been between April and October so it’s best to check opening schedule.
Pearl’s Plaice is a little gem which adorns my not-so-limited-as-it-may-appear gastronomic memory.
