ROSIE Lees cafe-bar and teashop in Turre is officially celebrating.
Not only was this popular British-run establishment invited to participate in the Turre ‘Camino de la Tapa’, it also won an award in the process. 
Tapas are not of course traditionally British, but ex-pats living and running businesses in Spain “get to sample the best of both cultures and mix things up a bit in the process”, says Rosie Lees’ owner Jemma Wilson. 
Rosie Lees was lucky number eight on the passport of participating eateries and offered the sweet treat at the end of the trail: chocolate fudge cake with a cup of tea of coffee. 
“Being part of this local event meant not only did we get to tantalise the taste buds of our regular customers, but we also got to entice more of our Spanish neighbours through our doors, and they liked it!”, Jemma told the Euro Weekly News.
So much so, that in the final vote count Rosie Lees came out top for having the nicest staff members on the route (la camarer@ mas simpatic@).
“What an absolute honour!”, Jemma commented.
“It was very much a team effort and we couldn’t be prouder of winning this award. Thank you so much to all who supported this event and voted for us.
“Who knows what the next year holds in store, but one thing is for sure, we will continue to give the same high level of customer service every step of the way! “
