Spain’s Strange Food Isn’t Always So Peculiar

 

On a recent stay in an Alicante province hotel, we spied these oddities on the hotel buffet.  I’m an adventurous eater, the people I was with……… not so much. So it fell to me to try the “Monsters on the Pie” offering.  Imagine my surprise to find myself eating Spanish crayfish on top of a crab and fish pie that was absolutely delicious. So much so, I went back for another one.

The moral of the story?  When in Spain, if you’re served something odd, strange and kinda scary looking yeah, crayfish do look a trifle other-planet-like), take a drink of sangria and try it. You may be pleasantly shocked at how scrumptious it is.

Did You Miss These?

    I've eaten something similar to this in Spain and, yep, they taste so much better than they look 🙂 Good on ya trying them though. Others less brave might not!
