A quick lunch stop
Last month, not only I went to visit my family in Spain but I also made a few trips in Spain itself. We went to Castilla-La Mancha to visit Alguien’s family. On our way we felt hungry so we decided to stop in a place we know in the highway to his town and share a quick lunch.
Everytime I go to a new cafeteria or bar, I always order a pincho de tortilla de patatas by deffault. Normally the tortilla de patatas in a signature food in every place in Spain, as every home, each cook has their way of making it. So I feel in the obligation of ordering it, poor me ;-)
This tortilla de patatas was delicious. It was still juicy in the inside, but perfectly cooked in the surface. And it was quite thick which is a sign of some expertise cooking tortillas! I cannot make it this thick!
The first dish you see is pisto manchego with a fried egg on top. Pisto is very similar to the ratatouille but it doesn’t contain any eggplant and it has cumin, which makes it very special.
Not all the places in the middle of a highway look like this, but this one is nice, I must say. It was reaaally warm outside, but because we have a dog, there was the only place we could stay.
And to finish, this last picture, which shows one of the most common views when you drive to the South of Spain… Everything DRY, yellow.
