La Tasca Trip

On the 27th February and the 6th of March, two year 8 groups went to the Spanish restaurant ‘La Tasca’ in the Trafford Centre.

As we walked in we were amazed by the unique decorations and furniture.  After we were seated, we received a menu that had a range of delicious different tapas.  There were so many interesting dishes it was hard to choose three! Some of the tapas included: Calamari, Croquettes, Meatballs, different types of Andalucian fish and many more!
