Re: Are you living the life you moved for?

To me, mero is like haddock or sea bass, a good quality, firm white fish.

If panga is so similar that it can be confused with mero, I'd be surprised as I've seen negative comments about its...

If you eat battery chicken, you can't complain about cruelty elsewhere.

Re: Are you living the life you moved for?

It's also a very efficient way of catching them.

So are you a vegetarian then?

Re: Are you living the life you moved for?

It's good value, but it is also one of the more expensive places around. The two facts are linked, 'm sure.

Re: Are you living the life you moved for?

Casa de Califa? Well, if you choose that as your benchmark, then you are going to be disappointed on a regular basis.

The food there is superb, and it is probably the best for miles around, but...

Re: Are you living the life you moved for?

Well, first off I have never seen tuna on display in the CDS, just here. It's possible that my taste buds are so shite these days that I couldn't tell the difference between top grade tuna and stuff...

Re: Are you living the life you moved for?

I suppose it puzzles the rest of us who manage to find good food around here, how you can claim that you 'never' have found a half decent menu del dia. It just makes you sound out of place ;)

Re: Are you living the life you moved for?

I would imagine there is certainly a difference between how that clip talks about treating tuna and the average fisherman doing it.

He describes a precision crafted work, and I doubt that a...

Re: Are you living the life you moved for?

I do rather like those places. I like a steak, some razor shells, add some soy sauce to the liquid they leave, and soak some nori rice rolls in that.

Re: Are you living the life you moved for?

Boy, you must eat in some shite places! I'd never go back!

Last time, the meat course was a succulent tuna steak for me and a sweet pork cut for Jan.

What's all this about blood running into...

Re: Are you living the life you moved for?

Depends on your definition of what is quality, and what is adequate. Round here the food is definitely campo, no Michelin cordon bleu, but tasty and filling.

Re: Are you living the life you moved for?

It's a nice area. I know this was a mild winter, but in the whole winter I doubt that the night time temps reached -1 for more than two weeks worth. On the open terrace, it never went below 3C.

Re: Are you living the life you moved for?

Don't sweat it. I'm assuming that you speak no Spanish at all? Look up an evening course, start reading some teach yourself books and make a project of it.

It's not the hardest language in the...

Re: Are you living the life you moved for?

Hence the phrase 'effectively'. Personally I prefer the crema catalan, but there's no accounting for tastes, is there?

All I know is, I can't afford to eat like that every day or I will end up...

That was to be a little humerous, but it was still sunbathing weather here. Watching the UK weather last week, your maximum temps were less than our minimum for the week. ;)

Today I was sunbathing. Couldn't do that in the UK unless I wanted hypothermia.

If anything I find that the seasons here in Spain are more clearly distinguished than they were in East Anglia.

One of the huge draws for the English is the Spanish climate with its reliable sunshine.

When I was a lot younger, the traditional pattern was that after a few days of classically good summer weather the air would become sultry, there would be a thunderstaorm and the air would clear.

I agree with you that most days in the UK are tolerable.

Tolerable. Not uplifting.

It can be. Tarifa is the wind sports capital for sure, but I don't go there. We have had a lot of wind here for the last 4 days, not a hurricane, but damn annoying when you have just transplanted...
