Things to do, apart from eating tapas
The rain didn’t stop the tapas flowing on Father’s Day last Sunday. Fully booked for breakfast and lunch, we hope you all enjoyed it. In fact, we know you did, as one customer put it: “Had a lovely Father’s Day meal today with my husband and eight-month-old. The atmosphere was relaxing and we all felt really at ease. Habis was really accommodating and gave us a table with plenty of room for a high chair. The food was lovely and left us both feeling full! Will definitely be back and would highly recommend – thank you!”
We’re not blowing our own trumpet (well, okay, we are) but we sort of told you WE ARE GREAT!! Anyway, from one busy old weekend to another. It’s all go, go, go again this weekend around here.
Firstly, there is the Littleport Leisure Open Day on Saturday (22 June). It’s a community event and the centre promises something for everyone while you look around their fab new – and very swish – building on Camel Road, Littleport. If you want something to eat before or after, of course, our Spanish restaurant is not far away for some fine Fens tapas!
And just down the A10 is the Wilburton Beer Festival this weekend. There’s not just beer on offer (thought there will be 50 ales and ciders!) but also Pimms, prosecco and gin. Pick your poison and stay standing as you will have to supervise the kids while they get busy with zorb balls, trampolines and face painting.
Of course, you can’t have a proper festival without music – and there are LOTS of bands on throughout the day. So, pencil it in your diary. It sounds like you’ll need a lot of energy, so why not swing by this cosy corner of Cambridgeshire and load up on a hearty Habis breakfast first?
Talking of food, next week we are going to let you into one of our secret recipes – natillas. It is one of the most popular desserts in Spain and luckily for you, it is also on our dessert menu! Whisked up by our wonderful chief man in the kitchen, Fabian, this dessert’s simple look belies its tantalising effect on the tastebuds. Here at Habis we’re all about the natural flavours, so it’s not as sweet (or naughty) as you may think.
As Fabian says: “When you work with local, fresh produce you don’t need to add extra sugar. I make things I like to eat so we therefore sell what I like to eat. If I didn’t like it, we wouldn’t sell it.”
Fair enough, Fabian, fair enough.
