D-bar, Almerimar

After a recent meeting with Chris (no drink involved this time!) we adjourned to D-bar, which is his local, almost at the foot of Almerimar.

Almerimar is a nice place. Not too touristy, small enough to walk everywhere and has a range of different types of bars.

I was going to steal some photos off Chris’s site but he hadn’t uploaded any good ones, so here’s one of the rather large English breakfast Chris insisted I order.

D bar almerimar english breakfastI’m not usually a fan of English breakfasts, and hadn’t had one for about 3 years (last one was probably in Eire..), so it was a novel experience. I never normally eat until about 2 in the afternoon. I ordered it with extra mushrooms and no tomato. Since they had run out of mushrooms I got an extra tomato. Pretty good tho’.

I’m told they have a new menu, and while pretty much English  “pub grub” it’s got a good range, and it’s not overly expensive.

Chris had some chips, the fat bugger. (Despite claiming on his site here that I ate them all). Look at him, squeezing on the ketchup. Disgusting (yet tasty!)

It’s run by John, a large and rather loud ginger fellow who actually speaks quite a bit of sense and speaks Spanish, and his wife, who is Russian (which lets me make a joke about how she Russians around while John enjoys a beer with us).

Nice place, while it’s a bit “benidormy” in look gets a nice mix of locals and tourists (English & Spanish!) and does a decent range of food and drink. John also takes pride in his sauce collection, and claims to have the hottest sauce available in El Ejido.

  1. LOL

    The ketchup was for you!!! To be fair to both of us we left some of the chips and you did have some, but I had your tomato.

    Olga (John’s wife) is from Russia.

  2. Tomato ketchup was sold locally by farmers. A man named Jonas Yerks (or Yerkes) is believed to have been the first man to make tomato ketchup a national phenomenon. By 1837, he had produced and distributed the condiment nationally.[7] Shortly thereafter, other companies followed suit. F. & J. Heinz launched their tomato ketchup in 1876..^`..

  3. I do not agree that he speaks a lot of sense as he certainly does not if you drink fruit juices.
    I think he is the most obnoxious barman I have ever met.
    No wonder his girlfriend looks so miserable.
