Apart from the Garlic Prawns and Cod (battered with Cod,natch),not a big Fish fan.Threw up all over my plate at the dinner table once,when I was about six when I was given a flat fish of some description for dinner once
Actually all this talk of food has made me hungry,might go down the chippy!

san miguel has to be ice cold, then its perfect. any temp above and its pretty much like treacle. i'd tend to vote for heineken bottles first and foremost, but it was a spanish vote.
and of course, come this time of the year, my numbers 6-10 become 1-5 as pints are impossible to drink in ths weather. i'm suprised i havent seen any cold flow pumps here in spain yet.....
soz SD, cruzcampo aint my fave on the list, but hey, it's still grand when cold!!

You dont have those Ice cold pumps in Spain becuase they have the beer perfect, Ice cold beer in the UK is still shite unless they frost the glass but then they never replace it next time

Most of the bar fridge's in the Uk is just as bad, for the money you pay its disgusting that is such cack service, it should be something that is reportable, but as everything in the UK people accept it get used to it and drink it


I think its one of the most complained things from yanks who come to the UK - the Temp ( and piss weak strength) of the beer, lol

I put my beer in the freezer and drink it slightly frosted, some people say it shouldn't be that way - but it suits me, I yak if abeer is warm / or just not even that cold.

Every Non English bar ive been in Spain in any region has always had proper cold beer on tap or in the fridge

yeah, not far off thr truth - those big beer cooler/freezers that they all have here seem to be the ticket. i was meant to get one when a friend here closed their bar but the brewery bought it back off them for cash. bah!!

Just had this lot for 8 euros.................. not


Lots of foodie info and other matters Spanish

This looks very similar to some "traditional" british favourites.
Gambas Ajillo sounds like prawn cocktail
For Jamon Iberico & Chorizo, read sausages
paella yup, eaten in the UK too
Pescado Frito ditto (but with chips)
Patatas Bravas, mmmm that takeaway favourite: chips with curry sauce

as for cheese, tomato soup, roast pork. All variations on a theme.
Looks like we''ve not all so different after all.

Nooo Gambas Ajillo is nothing like prawn cocktail. It's prawns in a paprika & garlic oil. Yummm
Patatas bravas are disgusting it's in a kind of spicy tomato sauce, gross!!

If it's from a factory or supermarket I agree, but if it is home made by someone that knows how then it is delicious.
