The avant-garde Cubism movement of Picasso, the Terminators now infamous catchphrase “Hasta la vista, baby” and the memory loss of many a party-goer, are just some of the many wonderful contributions the Spanish have given the world. Another great and yummier Spanish invention lies in the delicious pan dish of Paella. Whip up some Paella or Oxtail Potjie at Dros for R150 and take 4 to 8 of your friends along to make it a proper siesta.
Dros Atterbury is renowned for its warm, family orientated layout adding to that ‘at home’ South African ambience. With today’s Groupon Dros gives you and up to 8 amigo’s the opportunity to become genuino Spaniards and make your own choice of paella or oxtail potjie in red wine on a hot plate. Paella originated in Valencia, off the coast of Spain in the 19th Century. It is a well-known fact that men fighting in the Spanish War of Independence would wake up in a cold-sweat longing for their mouths to once again meet the scrumptious and comforting wiles of this Spanish rice dish. Oxtail is a traditionally South African dish which perfectly reverberates with Dros’ homely feel.
The clever folks at Dros have designed special tables with a hot plate in the middle to cater for this hands-on cooking experience. You will be your own chef by following the simple instructions and combining the scrumptious ingredients, while making sure everyone’s glass is topped up regularly with your free bottle of Dros red or white wine. Dros also has a list of rules for this communal cooking experience: The one person appointed as chef must dress the part; more than one cook spoils the broth; the chef’s left hand is for a glass and their right hand is for cooking and everyone has to guarantee that they will have an enjoyable time.
Whether you cook paella or oxtail at Dros you will still have more fun than the time you won the online bid for those cat shaped kettle-chips. This Groupon is the ideal outing for you and your posse of amigo’s, vamanos and grab this deal as fast as you can.
Española fact: Famous Spanish painter Picasso was known to use a cheese grater to grate wood shavings with which he would map out his next Cubist masterpiece. Unfortunately this grater was stolen from his home and was spotted in the possession of a busker on a corner of Amsterdam’s Red-light district shortly after.
