Orange Juice

Orange juice in Spain, even at the corner bar, will usually be fresh squeezed. I have been eating a lot of pimientos de Padrón (I actually ate some in Padrón itself), octopus, empanadas, vino de Albariño, and jamón serrano. Here in Spain someone defending a dissertation has to invite the committee out to eat, so on Friday I had an elaborate multi-course banquet, beginning with a raw-salmon appetizer and culminating in a filet of beef and some exquisite desserts and a local coffee liqueur. There was a shell-fish course (navajas?), and a fish course as well.

This sounds so delicious. I live for jamon serrano. When I can find it, that is.

Unfortunately, my experiences with food in Spain have been bad. Every time, I went I'd go completely hungry because I couldn't find a good place to eat. Or a place where they'd serve me. I don't know why I've been so unlucky.

Madrid is hard if you don't know where you're going. Galicia is much easier; it's hard to eat badly here.
