A week ago, I had a lovely opportunity to dine and dream with 8 pretty gals over Sangria and Tapas at Tramontana Brindisa, a restaurant set up in Shoreditch serving speciality dishes from Spanish Mediterranenan.I had been swooning at the ambience in the restaurant for a while, until I started on Sangria.Such a casual & friendly atmosphere with the decor being simple and inviting. It was indeed an experience with all the dramatic dishes that graced the table and not to forget the red and the white sangria. A must taste for people who have not had it before.. I loved the red!!! White was good too. Now definitely need to think which was better than the best.
To click the pictures on that wintery drizzly evening, I was sublet an Iphone 6 to do it. Three Mobile had invited me to a foodie event to celebrate their Feel at Home Tariff with a difference. I was told to just walk in and enjoy the evening , with no gadgets to mark the evening. For the very first time, I was in a restaurant with some amazing food and inspiring people and there was no SLR tagged with me. I was quite skeptical too, if I can do pictures and will it live upto the mark . Having used older versions of Iphone over a few years, I knew they do a great job in day light.. Being an evening with warm lights turned on , wasnt that sure . But the Phone did live upto its mark.The reason we had been asked to leave our cameras behind was because the new iPhone 6 comes with an 8MP iSight camera with Focus Pixels (the 6 plus also has optical image stabilisation), and is perfect for carrying with you on the go. One doesnt really need a p&s if you carry an Iphone 5 and onwards!
A fancy phone over a fancy dinner was a theme to encourage come dine with Three.Three mobile is supporting its customers to feel at home , yet travel to Spain and 16 other destinations . They are allowing their customers to use their allowance to call and text UK and use your data without paying a penny more. What more can you ask for? Arent you feeling at home, away from home !!!

I am soo much tempted to migrate from my existing provider to Three .
Over Three , most of them were dining over a set menu provided. Being a vegetarian by choice, the restaurant was courteous in bringing me a completely tailored vegetarian menu. There were soo many things I was served with all the complicated names, all that I could remember was they were yummy and quite delectable. On requesting my fellow dinner, Letizia who speaks Spanish, she kindly mailed me all the detailed names. Here it is , in her very own words !!!Thank you Letizia .
- Ensalada con tomate y queso (Green salad with tomato and cheese)
- Bomba (Mash potato, vegetables and Mahon Cheese croquet with tomato sauce)
- Pimientos de piquillo rellenos (Piquillo peppers stuffed with mix vegetables)
- Canalons Casolans (Flat pasta filled with spinach, goat curd, pine nuts and raisins)
- Crema Catalana
- Arroz con leche (Spanish rise pudding)
