Luuurve Gambas Ajillo, never tried suckling pig, (would like to) really think the paella is waaaaayyyy over-rated, and as for tortilla espanola...yukkkkk double yuk!!

Donb't get me wrong I like Spanish food well enough when I can get it, particularly tapas, and fish , but on the whole, fatty choritzo, omellette, paella and meatballs et al leave me cold!!

Not so sure, dont mind it, but I think I still rather heineken which luckily is sold close to everywhere, I also prefer Estrella to Cruz Campo but prefer Cruz Campo to San Miguel !!

Last time In the Lidl I chose buying a case of Cruz Campo over Heineken so I must be coming round to it, that was in Sevilla where its peanuts anyway.

One great thing I like about Spain is they serve cans in bars, dont know why they cant do that here in the UK, less waste, less mess and less head injuries and windows broke, lol Easier to keep well cold aswell !!
