La Tomatina

Hi tapas lovers!

To celebrate the famous La Tomatina festival in Valencia, Spain, La Tasca wanted to do something to mark the occasion here in the UK too.

All La Tasca restaurants hosted events to mark one of Spain’s most celebrated festivals. Customers in Portsmouth, Bournemouth and Liverpool, to name but a few, were challenged to see who could be crowned La Tomatina Tomato Eating Champion 2013 by seeing who could eat the most tomatoes in 60 seconds. Not only this, customers in Newcastle and Cardiff took part in a tomato bobbing competition. If you think this is mad, staff members in Sheffield bathed in a bathtub of tomatoes! Yes, a bathtub of tomatoes! While in Kingston it was all about who could stack the most number of tomatoes…and in Leeds, the city was treated to something extra special; two red naked beauties!

Overall, all events were a huge success and everyone had FUN, which is one of our core values here at La Tasca.

We look forward to next year’s events and who knows what we’ll have up our sleeves for then!

Love, La Tasca x
