The 5 Dishes You Must Try on a Spanish Holiday

While you might be longing to relax on a stunning beach, sip Sangria at an atmospheric bar, and participate in an action-packed water sport while in Spain, it’s the food you will want to stay for.

Rather than sticking to your home comforts during a getaway, you should make it your mission to sample the local cuisine, which will provide you with an insight into the nation’s culture and history.

To fall head over heels in love with the country and its food, here are the five dishes you must try on a Spanish holiday.

1. Paella

While Italy has pasta, France has souffles and German has sauerkraut, Spain has the mouth-wateringly good paella, which will make you want to up sticks and move to the country. The nation’s signature dish originates from Valencia and features white rice, runner beans, butter beans, saffron and either chicken, rabbit or seafood. It’s the perfect dish to try at any point in the year, and it is commonly eaten at lunchtime.

2. Patatas Bravas

One dish you can expect to find on most tapas menus is patatas bravas, which translates to “brave potatoes.” That’s because the cubed or shallow friend potatoes are marinated in a spicy sauce, such as garlic mayonnaise with pimiento or a spicy ketchup.

The delicious dish was created in southern Spain and is made for sharing, so you should sample other dishes alongside the Spanish staple when at a restaurant.

3. Gazpacho

Gazpacho is a tomato-based soup that is famously served cold and originates from Andalusia. While the cold texture might be a surprise to many, it can be the perfect dish to try when enjoying the glorious sunshine during holidays in Lanzarote, which is well-regarded for its year-round sunshine – so there is never a bad time to sample the staple when on the island. The flavours are sure to burst onto your tongue from the first spoonful, as it is made from tomatoes, garlic and peppers, which is served with bread and, of course, olive oil.

4. Jamón

One of the most celebrated foods in all of Spain is Jamón, which is a leg of cured ham that is salted and hung up to dry, which will preserve the meat throughout winter. While you will commonly find Jamón Serrano in most restaurants, which comes from a white pig, you will want to try Jamón Iberico that comes from black pigs and is the more expensive of the two.

Regardless of which option you choose, the delectable meat should be served in thin slices with a small amount of bread, which will ensure it melts in your mouth.

5. Churros

If you have more of a sweet tooth and want to enter foodie heaven, you should indulge in churros, which are a much-loved snack by both locals and tourists. They are made from fried dough pastry in a sausage-like shape, and they are then doused in sugar and best dipped in hot melted chocolate.

While most locals will treat themselves to churros at a fiesta or street party, holidaymakers can buy them from various roadside vendors, regardless of whether they are holidaying in the Canary Islands or a stunning Spanish city.

THAI DISHES

By: Vaughn Lowery

About 24 years ago, Tom Wynter moved from Thailand to America with a dream to open his own commercial enterprise. He started working at Thai Dishes restaurant, the old location. And moved on to a California Pizza Kitchen location for almost a decade and became a licensed bartender where he functioned at a popular bar in Hollywood. After becoming managerial staff at various establishments, he begins to act in tandem with Thai Dishes in Santa Monica when it was located on 2nd Street. The owners decided to call it quits as the rental for their location was coming up for renewal. Wynter decided to extend the legacy of this authentic Thailand franchise and discovered a vacancy at 123 Broadway in Santa Monica which fulfilled his imagination – a restaurant with a bar and patio which mimicked the likes of cafes in Paris. This time around he wanted to make sure that his restaurant had all of the key ingredients which he really felt engaged him as a patron – great food and drinks with a decor to match.

Soon After, Thai Dishes on Broadway was born. An unassuming and unpretentious venue which would be perfect for a quick drink/bite or a spot where you celebrate your birthday. Wynter obviously struck gold being a half block away from Ocean Boulevard, the newly renovated mall and the last stop on the Expo Line. For this area, everything is moderately priced and holds all the right offerings for a romantic date or simply a place to recharge your batteries while you people watch in the sidewalk seating. The ambiance is stellar: mosaic tiling near bar, warm fall colors, bespoke wall paper, faux ostrich wrapped table tops and unique Thai ornaments sprinkled throughout. The most sought after menu items include: BBQ pork over rice, spicy green bean tofu, roasted duck over rice and red curry chicken (presentation is very reminiscent of an authentic Thai dining experience).

Specialty handcrafted cocktails like their Mai Thai cocktails made with Thai whiskey will keep you coming back, but customer service contributed by his general manager, Leila Regalado, is a key component to TDOB’s success. She will have you seated within seconds and constantly will check in to see if you require anything else. If her smile isn’t enticing enough, serving size, happy hour specials and bottomless mimosas on Saturday/Sunday from 12 to 3 pm) should reel you back in.

Wynter asserts, “I’m constantly checking on the quality of food that comes out our kitchen and my staff sometimes needs me during holidays and weekends, which leaves little or no time for a life outside of this place.”

THAAI DISHES SQUARE

One thing’s for sure, Tom Wynter and all of his personal sacrifices have made Thai Dishes On Broadway a slam dunk within the Santa Monica Pier/Downtown area.
