If you visit Murcia don't miss..... (1)

The lovely local meat pies.....Pastelicos de carne. Available from almost all bakers, it is a staple of the local cuisine as a quick bite as a snack or as lunch or dinner. Either minced or chunks of beef, embellished with the odd bit of chorizo sausage, can differ between cooks. Proper politically incorrect heart clogging pastry made with proper fat. And totally delicious!

Typically combined by Real Murcia fans for evening games with an empanada - which has a different pastry and is filled with bonito (similar to tuna), tomato and hard boiled egg. The pastelico - empanada combo is called an "Aquino and Cuxart" after two ex-strikers.

For me the best are from either Espinosa on Floridablanca number 3, or Bonache on the Plaza de las Flores nearer the centre of town.

  1. Hi mate,

    I have heard some contradictory information about next season's tickets, is it the time already for new members?

  2. Yes, both renewals and new members can get their season passes for next season as from today. The box office at the stadium is open from 9.30 a.m. ti 13.30 p.m., and then from 16.30 p.m. to 19.00 p.m.
    Are you going to be new members? Where are you based?

  3. We're based in Torrevieja and yes we're new members. Which seats have you got?

  4. We sit on the Fondo Sur....but it seems the club have deemed this end "only for peñistas". The peñas are the official supporters groups....
    I daresay that the club should be accomodating given the circumstances, if you discussed it with them. Need any help, let me know....

  5. Thanks, mate. I'll keep you informed.
