Spain Trip - Food

I decided to make a special blog post about all the wonderful, lip smacking food i ate or photographed. Alas, not all the food here was consumed. I did get to try a lot of amazing cuisine in Barcelona and Madrid.  We had trouble finding good Paella. My sistter and i found out there are different versions of Paella among the regions of Spain. The kind we had was more like Risotto and had very little seafood in it (rip off!)  We are dissappointed as that is one of the foods we wanted to try. We had it again at another restaurant and it was okay, but still not the kind we had seen in photos. Ah well, we did have other meals that were good, and a few bad ones, but overall, a good experience. Enjoy this post, and try not to drool to much. :P

The variety of tomatoes were amazing!  I made a faux pas and picked up a tomato, and the woman yelled at me and pushed we out of the way with a crate.  I guess she was sick of touristos touching her produce which i understand afterwards. But maan she was very mean about it. 


Lovely radishes


Giant Eggs..not sure which bird they came from.


Santa Caterina Mk they had a  huge restaurant..we had to try some fish dishes of course, fresh from the Mk.


We tried fish that we have never had before..it was very tasty.
