(228) Burning bright

A lady styling herself " Mollypops " started a thread at the torrevieja.co.uk site
http://www.torrevieja.co.uk/
at their General Chat message board on August 9th 2006 to which she gave the quaint heading
Lobster Lobster.

The thread progressed thus (my handle was Parsifal and my wife´s, beastess)

- I live in Quesada and I am looking for a Lobster Restaurant. Can anyone recommend one and/or phone number ??? Thanx jessi

There isn't one in quesada to my knowledge. The best fish restaurant we went to was El pescador in Torrevieja, their number is....965715474.

There's a restaurant beach side at Play flamenca that has a 'Lobster Night'.Don't know the name but sure someone else will.

It´s a Belgian Restaurant called Den Engel. We have had a few birthday treats there. it´s not cheap but excellent. 23.95 per person plus drinks. It´s a simple formula - lobster soup followed by a whole lobster with salad, chips and mayonnaise. Best washed down with a white Belgian beer called Grimberger(? spelling) in my opnion.
Book ahead. The staff speak a few languages and are very pleasant so it´s a good place for a night out.

Here´s a nice coincidence, I made the above entry last night, obviously inspired by Blake´s poem Tiger, Tiger, since the thread has the heading Lobster Lobster.
This morning I get the following e mail -
From : update@team.game.co.uk Sent : 11 August 2006 08:41:11 Subject :
GAME: Burning Bright
This turns out to be a new computer game about Tiger Woods, even though the name of the game itself is NOT Tiger, Tiger, nor Burning Bright.
Blake´s poem was written pre-Darwin and is about his perception of supernatural design in the natural world. " What immortal hand or eye could frame thy fearful symmetry? " he wrote.

Den Engel means ´the Angel´.
