One of the most common questions we answer is about Spanish mealtimes. Being based here in Spain, we frequently see travellers to Spain sitting down to meals at the wrong time. We always encourage our Totally Spain clients to make a note of (and adapt to) Spanish mealtimes – especially when travelling to less touristy areas and in the low season. Why? If you do dine at the correct Spanish mealtimes, you are much more likely to find yourself eating authentic Spanish food with lots of local colour, noise and atmosphere – which is always better than dining alone.
If you’ve ever been to Spain you’ll know just how popular the Spanish omelette or ‘tortilla de patata‘ is. The humble dish of eggs and fried potatoes is an year-long staple in homes, bars and restaurants.
