This is a really quick blog with some delicious pictures of food that I’ve eaten recently at Tres Corazones tapas restaurant in Wendover.

I went with a group of friends for a Christmas dinner and then treated myself to lunch this week because it’s so quick, tasty and safe for people with allergies.

They cook everything fresh from scratch when you order which means they can easily adapt dishes to suit those with coeliac disease or allergies. The food I ordered was dairy free, wheat free, nut free, tomato free and celery free.

The starters…

I love olives but these were particularly tasty and the anchovies in vinegar were so delicate and moreish. One of my favourite dishes of the evening and naturally dairy and wheat free.

The resaurant made these specially for me slightly differently to the normal ones on the menu. Deliciously crunchy with sea salt crust, we voted these better than the option from the main menu!

And then the mains…

I was particularly looking forward to these baby squid and again, the restaurant were amazing and made these specially for me. The others had these from the main menu with a crumb coating and after trying both, they all agreed these were far superiour! Sometimes it’s good to be the allergic diner – I do love a bit of food envy 🙂

One of my favourite meals is roasted vegetables and I was able to order these straight from the menu, just minus the tomatoes, which I’m allergic to. Really tasty and just so fresh and simple. I’ve never roasted asparagus before but they were delicious.

My all time favourite dish at any tapas resraurant is the Spanish omelette. Again I could order this one straight from the menu and we could all share the same dish. We had quite a few of these between us. Really delicious and perfectly cooked.

We were so full we had no room for pudding! Not sure the puddings would have been suitable so I always just gorge on the starters and mains. A top night out and so safe and easy for me.

And finally, that sneaky lunch…

I had all this myself, Spanish omelette, garlic mushrooms and some more of those delicious anchovies. Mmmmmm…

This place is now my new favourite restaurant. Who wants to come with me next time?
