Having spent about two weeks in Spain and from travelling around different regions, I am pleased to learn that Spain is not all about tapas and jamon. Henceforth, here is a small compilation of what to eat when in Spain.
Paella originated from this region and whilst there are different flavour combinations of it around Spain, it is traditionally made of saffron, chicken, rabbit and beans. Due to the size of the pan, this is a dish to be shared among 2 individuals as anything less may hamper on it's quality.
It's all about the almond meal and honey concoction here, commonly known as marzipan. I have tried it before in the past but unfortunately, it did not go down well as I found it a tad too sickeningly sweet. Thankfully, I had a much more positive experience in Spain and was actually craving for more.
I am probably being biased by placing Seville at the top of my Spanish food chart, mostly because the sister and I had an excellent dining experience at a restaurant near our hotel - all thanks to our hospitable, non-English speaking waiter who took time to ensure we understood what we were ordering from the Spanish menu.
At Meson De Juan, the sister and I feasted on the following:
Am still drooling at the sight of these pictures and would recommend a visit here:)
Now if you are ever stuck in Spain and have completely no idea what or where to eat, fret not because jamon with bread can be your life saver here, especially if you are on a budget. One can easily head into the supermarket and purchase good quality jamon with bread - voila, a meal in the making.
