The event is organised by the port business association and the town hall and 20 restaurants took part offering a range of goodies – each offers a ‘signature’ tapa each year; the rules state it must include seafood as a main ingredient.
Three outlets also offered a key drink, Agua de Valencia; mojitos; and Sangia Blanco, which by the queues forming also proved to be popular.
