I love to eat and there’s nothing better than eating the local cuisine.
Eating my heart out, is a new series where I share the delicious food I sample where ever I am!
Today I’m highlighting my 2 weekend visits and a day trip to Granada! I love the small city, roaming the streets, watching the camaraderie of young Spaniards enjoy themselves and of course, all the tapas I can eat! Unlike in the Almeria province where you can choose your tapa, most tapa bars in Granada bring you a tapa of their choosing.
This is a genius marketing strategy because for people curious like me, I always want to know what the segundo,tercero, etc. (second, third and so on) tapa will be. I say, “Bring me another Tinto de Verano.” Rumor has it, the tapas get better and better, you just have to stay to find out. I haven’t had enough time to test the theory yet, I’ll just have to return to Granada. Schucks!
Granada is a University town as well as a big tourist destination. Tapa portions in many places are BIG. Tapas are typically served on the same plate since they’re an appetizer unless you have the option to choose.
Moroccan tapas. Best. Idea. Ever. My friend Michelle and I were disappointed we were not that hungry. After one round, we called it quits. We came back the next day but they’re closed on Sundays. Boo.
This next tapa makes me appreciate being able to chose my tapa.
I’m usually adventurous when it comes to food but sometimes when my food still has a face and purty eyes looking at me, I can forget I’m hungry.
Or I feel like a little kid, I can’t eat Sam the fish. Or how about, “You want me to TRY What??! No, thanks. Maybe tomorrow.
Ok. So some days I’m not adventurous.
What tapa do you think you’d enjoy? Are you an adventurous eater? Sampler of food?
