In the US, actual Spanish food is pretty hard to come by (most of it is Mexican), but I have had it a few times, and it was quite good.

In the Boston area, there are three excellent Spanish restaurants:

Dali in Somerville, corner of Washington and Beacon, Tapeo, Newbury St. in the Back Bay, and Cuchi Cuchi, Main Street in Cambridge. They are all owned by the same management, and the food, service, and atmosphere are terrific. Personally, I like Dali the best. Green-lipped mussels, pork tenderloin with blue goat cheese, garlic shrimp, scallops in saffron, and plenty of sangria.

Does Paella looks like a Taco to you?

Sorry man, I don't even know what a Paella is  Sad I was just wondering seeing as mexicans speak spanish and have quite a few spanish roots.

ZKSUJ,

As far as I am aware, Spanish food and Mexican food aren't very similiar. Just like American food and British food.

ZKSUJ: Check out my favorite Spanish tapas (sort of hors d'ouerves/appetizers) in reply #3. Very unlike Mexican food - almost more like French food. I prefer tapas to the main dishes such as paella; they're fantastic!

I haven't even ever heard of an actual Spanish Cuisine. In San Antonio, it's all Mexican and Tex-Mex. It looks good though, possibly better than those wonderful encharitos (the epiphany of Tex-Mex).

Mexican food is a thing apart. It is not even much like other Latin American cuisine. I happen to love it but it is not like the food of Spain. The "Mexican" food you get in the USA is mostly typical of the northern and northwestern parts of Mexico. Get down into subtropical Mexico and it is different.

Ahh, the food of Spain. One of my great travel memories was getting up early enough to enjoy the hotel breakfast in Madrid. Things you'd never see on the breakfast line in Atlantic City!

Love the Serrano ham, the manchego cheese, the wonderful olives and, oh by the way, the sherry. All about big strong flavors and subtle little ones. Can I go back now?

There is a great restaurant in Madrid, just off the Calle Princesa, maybe near the Cuartel del Conde Duque. Can't think of the name of it, but ask for the "garlic" restaurant. Worth hunting it up.

American vs. British food....

Ohhh...spanish food... DELICIOUS.

Paella, Tortilla Española, Jamón Serrano.

Also they have some delicious desserts, like the "Yemitas de Ávila", small egg thingys with a spherical shape, and Turrones, specially the Yema Tostada turrón.

Spanish WINES are very nice too. Like Rioja. Very traditional. A bit like French wine.

Any tapas that you people recommend?

Seems that Spanish people tend to share tapas rather than order main courses separately.

Quite possibly, the greatest night of my life was spent in San Sebastian, for a guy who likes to drink and likes good food, it was absolute heaven. The bars set the tapas out, and you only go there for what they're known for, hopping around throughout the night. It was hard to abstain from the American style gorging, especially with an entire plate of sauteed wild shrooms and egg, mmm, fish cakes, squid stuffed with boudin noir, grilled sardines! Absolutely spectacular. And what's a better breakfast after a night out on the town? Churros, fried dough, sugar and chocolate. Some got that one right! Mexican food is vastly vastly different, even by American standards. How many dairy cows do you see in Mexico? No cheddar cheese, no sour cream, almost never the finer cuts of beef, usually and economy cut of puerco. Necessity breeds the greatest cooks, nothing like a packed bowl of menudo! (the sopa not the band.)

I'm going to don my flame suit and speak in the minority here:

I think Spanish food sucks! I spent two weeks there in 2001, and couldn't wait to leave. It was such a struggle to find anything decent to try to eat. Scenery's great, people are laid back and easy to talk to, but the food is something entirely different. Thank god for GERMAN FOOD! Now that's food!

Flame suit off now....

There's a Mexican restaurant near me that also serves some Spanish items. One of them is lenguada canarias, if I've got the spelling right, which is fillet of sole with bananas. It may sound weird, but it's delicious. And yes, paella is one of the finer foods anywhere.

StevenUHL777~ Haha, it remind me of my friend Dave. We both lived in Florence for a year, and he was there with me, as I was diving into everything, he was practically gagging! I seriously believe that he lived off a box of Frosted Flakes and mustard sandwiches the week we were there. Good memories! Whatever floats your boat.

Hey, anybody have any good tappas recipies they wish to share.

I bought a set of pans at Costco a while back that where called "Tappas" pans, correct me if I am wrong but aren't Tappas the munchies that are served hot at bars, kind of an evening brunch kind of deal.

Yep, you're correct. What types of recipes are you looking for? Preferences? Cheese, seafood, beef? I have literally a closet full of cookbooks, binders and magazines, plus all the stuff from my own catering gigs....so, let me know what you like, then I'll see what I can dig up.
