Most hotels usually offer breakfast buffets (sometimes at exhorbitant prices) but since we usually have a light breakfast to start our day, we have it at a nearby cafe or bar. Here´s what we had in Andalusia:
Mollete sandwich +freshly squeezed orange juice + coffee/tea -mollete is a type of flat bread which is usually toasted to make it crusty on the outside but chewy and smooth to the bite inside. To make the perfect sandwich, it´s slathered with extra virgin olive oil+ a slice of tomato and lots of jamon serrano slices. A simple mollete sandwich consist of just the bread and slices of jamon serrano only.
Our lunch in Cádiz consisted of:
breaded squid rings as starters
and seafood paella as the main dish. It´s perfect with a bottle of cold beer or glass of cold dry sherry too! In summer, I´d have this with sangría which isn´t just common in the south but in all of Spain. :)
Dinner is usually light when we travel, we had:
chocos en pimenton y aceite de oliva ( cuttlefish in paprika and olive oil)
or just plain pan-grilled in olive oil with a serving of salad
and here´s something exotic tasting but very delicious, croquettes made up of the meat of a bull´s tail. Yep, you read that right, meat from a bull´s tail. It has quite a strong taste but so yummy and only from the south of Spain. ;)
We´re usually full after dinner so we don´t usually eat dessert but that doesn´t stop me from having a scoop or two of ice-cream when we roam around. Mmmmm!
So that´s it. Now you know, what to order when you get stranded in the south of Spain. ;)
So what´s for lunch/dinner tonight?
