So the food, the wine, the ambience, the atmosphere, the team, the craft ales and location that make Lo Nuestro-Taperia Restaurante the gem of a restaurant in the Jewish quarter of Toledo and of course the King and Queen of Lo Nuestro-Taperia Restaurante, Antonio and Conchi all come together to make an amazing afternoon and give you a real taste of Castilla-La Mancha. We asked Antonio if he could meet one historical figure from Spanish history who would it be, he replied that he would like to meet Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, the author of the infamous book The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha and why? Because he was a dreamer. We asked him what they would talk about and he said they would spend an afternoon together drinking wine, eating Jamon and Queso and discussing gentlemanly things. We asked him what he would ask Miguel and Antonio replied "I would ask if I could be Don Quioxtes sidekick in the book, Sancho Panza". We think that Miguel would have been more than happy to write Antonio into the book and that Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra and his fictional character Don Quixote would have spent many an afternoon in Lo Nuestro-Taperia Restaurante eating Jamon and Queso and drinking wine from Castilla-La Mancha... Make sure you stop off after exploring, the Jewish Quarter, here at Eat Play Stay Spain we guarantee you will not be disappointed...
