The Flavorful Food of Spain
To celebrate our first week of school my ISA High School group ate at a restaurant on the beach called Chiringuito Paradise last night. It is located right on the beach and has a clear view of the ocean!
To start off our celebratory meal, we ordered a cold soup called gazpacho. Gazpacho, a tomato based soup, is composed of many raw vegetables and even has pieces of bread! Many Spainards eat gazpacho in the summer because it is refreshing in the hot weather. Next, for our main meal we had paella. Our paella, a rice dish, was made up of vegetables and chicken. It was amazing!!!
Lastly for dessert, we had churros and chocolate. The churros were the size of my arm! They also came with a bowl of hot, melted chocolate. Tomorrow I am hoping to try tortilla española which is like a Spanish omelet!
