I'm on a pension and I'm trying to cut down my shopping bills as much as possible. Which supermarket do you all find the cheapest for the essentials like milk, bread etc? I always buy Spanish brands as they tend to be cheaper and often tastier. Currently shop in Mercadona as I can walk to it but willing to travel if somewhere is considerably cheaper.

A strange question I know! Will I be able to buy that Green Christmas Staple that is the humble Brussel Sprout in or around the Mazarron area? Coming over for Christmas and my Turkey dinner would so not be the same! Many thanks

I love to go out from time to time with the family to enjoy a traditional Sunday lunch as we usually eat Spanish. However, most of the places we have tried so far are either expensive for what you're getting or so smoky that you can't enjoy what you are eating. Please recommend me a restaurant that is completely smoke free and doesn't charge over the odds for Sunday lunch. I don't mind where you are as we would like to try a few different ones.

Have you tried the Da Fu Hau Chinese Restaurant in the Pto Mazarron? They now do a Wok Buffet for 9.50 euros and the food is fabulous, nice presentation, and welcoming place to eat. I believe they do this 9.50 euros Buffet every evening... Try it.

I know i can use good strong plain flour - or even a plain flour/durum mix. But does anyone know where, local to Puerto de Mazarron i can get '00' flour for pasta making. I've tried all the normal places, in fact i can't even find fine durum or semolina flour. I would appreciate any assistance.Thanks.

Has anyone been to the tea pot next to the mercadona in the port since it has been taken over. We went down on sat and what a differance from the last people that had the place, the new owners are so friendly and polite, and the food tastes that much better. Give it a go what a change. Regards vsmd
