Food & Drink
 
Start off with a pintxo of tortilla española (Spanish omelette), a sip of gazpacho, or a bite of a delicious croqueta; wash it down with a nice Spanish beer or a glass of tinto de verano (sparkling sangría), and finish off your culinary experience with a classic Spanish dessert, like arroz con leche (rice pudding) or churros with chocolate.
