It’s birthday season!!! Last night I went for Tapas for Amanda’s birthday at Barrio 2304 – a Spanish restaurant on Maitland Road, Mayfield.

Talulah Bar and Restaurant, The Junction, Newcastle

To celebrate one of the girls finishing her Med school exams for the semester, a group of us met for drinks at The Junction Hotel, and then went across the road to Talulah for dinner.

Amazing chips to tide us over while we waited for our meals.

I’m personally not that into tapas (tend to find it over-rated and over-priced) so I happily ordered from the (small) mains menu, as did the rest of the group.

While I rounded my meal off with a hot (hot hot handle on the metal pot! meep!) pot of Chamomile tea.
