Paella, the national dish of Spain, is obviously still very popular with tourists, although the locals do not seem to eat much of it.
Madrid boasts some of Spain’s oldest and most famous restaurants, some of which are more than two hundred years old.
It is in these restaurants that you will find some of the most traditional and least modernised dishes that are usually associated with past decades in Spain.
Some of the most popular dishes are Bacalao A La Vizcaina, Pollo A La Chilindron and Fabada.
These dishes share a few common basics, they are based on braised rice or stew, most contain shellfish and chicken or pork and they are very tasty and traditional, whilst modernised versions are available and are considered vast improvements on already exquisite food.
Spanish wines have always been incredibly popular around the world.
In the U.K. Spanish wine is highly sought after and is held in as high respects as the finer wines out of Chile.
