Spanish Fish and chips. Without chips.


On Sunday we decided that a mini road trip was in order and decided to head down south-east of Seville to do a Via Verde (Green walk). This fell flat pretty much as we left Seville as it started to rain but we decided that the towns round there were so very pretty, we’d have lunch and a mooch around seeing the sights. We visited Cornonil where we encountered a Fruideria. Which is the equivalent of a fish and chip shop –  except there was no chips. They pretty much fry everything and you head up to the counter to collect your little bundles of heart attack inducing goodness when they yell your name. It’s all served in wraps of paper and is basically delicious. Except for the pollo frito or fried chicken which really was just a chicken chopped up and tossed in the deep fat fryer – bones and all.
