* Eating 52 Countries In 52 Weeks - Week 5 - SPAIN

Everyone knows you should never judge a book by the cover. Olé! Spain Delishop looks like a small grocery store from the outside, what awaits inside is a feast of genuine Spanish deliciousness.

We have been to this delishop before but still we stood and stared at the menu hanging overhead hand written on blackboards with chalk. We picked the Catalana sandwich because almost all ingredients were mysteries to me and Madrilena because it had fried rings of squid in it.

We washed down these delectable meat and cheese sandwiches with Sangría Señorial followed by the Iberica tapas plate with olives.

When we were asked if we wanted dessert, answering 'Yes!' was enough to get this lovely plate of Carlota over to our table. Silky smooth, milky and fruity simplicity of this dessert was the perfect climax to our Spanish meal.

Well fed and ready for a nap, we left this little portal to Barcelona and reluctantly started the drive to the afternoon portion of our workday.

It is our good fortune that Olé! is just around the corner from work and a sure destination for many-a-lunch breaks.

¡Buen provecho!

And keep following us around the world-cuisine!
