  1. Food is a great reason to travel, and one of my favorite activities in a new place. I don’t eat meat or seafood, but patatas bravas, churros, and pastries I’m all here for!

    1. Yes, food is such a great reason to travel! And there was plenty of fresh fruit too I’m sure you’d enjoy 🙂

    Yes I’m drooling. I’ve already made note of that bakery in Madrid. I didn’t know Paella had a sister pasta dish. That’s one I never found on my 8 times in Spain.

    1. Sounds like it’s time for trip #9 to Spain for some more good eating!

  3. Under flowery sky says:

    What a great and tasty read! This post brought back many good memories of former trips to Spain. It’s hard to beat the churros of Madrid-based San Gines. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thanks! Can’t say no to San Gines churros!

  6. I’m definitely more a dessert person than a seafood person so the pastries are making my mouth water. I loved the markets in Barcelona which is the only Spanish place I’ve been as yet. It was such a great city. I’d love to have some patatas bravas right now! I’m always happy with a great foodie destination like this though

    1. Ah you would love the Napolitana pastries! Foodie destinations are the best!

    I want to eat my way through Spain! Paella is pretty much key to my heart and I have no shame in it LOL.

    1. Thanks, Gus! A good paella can’t be beat!

        I had such a hard time eating in Spain as I’m a vegetarian, and they are all about meat and seafood. But what I did have was delicious. I found Barcelona to have many fine dining options, and they always accommodated me. I loved the dining culture there, Tapas and then a very late night meal.

        1. Aw yeah, I bet it would be tough for vegetarians! Glad to hear you still found some great options!

  8. Ugh, I’m jealous. It all looks delicious!

    Wow, when you said cups of chocolate, I thought you meant like small plastic containers, not actual cups. And they provide spoons. How awesome. 🙂

    1. They don’t mess around with their chocolate 🙂

  9. Your post brought back amazing memories we had in Barcelona. I’m addicted to their food, especially paella, seafood, churros and some of their dessert devils:) Hahaa..

    First time I’ve heard of Fideuà, that’s really interesting. My hubby would love this version better since he doesn’t like rice that much. Love the photos and your food journey there. Keep em’ coming and thanks for sharing.

    1. Thanks, Jane! Yes, I was drooling adding the photos to this post 🙂 I hope you and your husband get to try fideua one day soon!

    I love culinary travel guides. Thanks for this gastro tour. Looks awesome!

  11. I finally managed to have some Sangria on my most recent trip to Spain and it was so delicious!

    My problem with Spanish food is that I’m never there long enough to try everything! I definitely want to try Fideuà although hopefully there’s also a chicken version as I can’t eat seafood!

    1. Ah yes, so much food and so little time!

  12. Darn, shouldn’t have read this while hungry for dinner. Now I am not just drooling, but the noises my tummy is making is embarassing! Lucky no one else is here 😉

    I can’t wait for our trip to Spain now…will endeavour to try everything you mentioend above! Yummmmm

    Thanks for the beautiful pics and the blog on what we must eat in Spain! 💛

    1. Haha can’t wait for you to eat all of these amazing dishes and more!

    What about Jamon! Spain has the best ham ever, superior to Parma ham in my opinion.

    1. I do have ham included in my food market suggestion but you’re right, jamon deserves its own shout out!
