Travels with a Gourmet

a food lover's travels, memorable meals, culinary trials and gastronomic experiences

Here’s another post to continue my summer grill theme. After a weekend of Argentine meat, we went to Marbella’s Mercado Central to buy some seafood and meat. For lunch, we had a typical Andalusian grill of while squid along with a large piece of red tuna from Almadraba. Both were delicious and light enough to eat on a day with temperatures reaching almost 35C. We were starving by the time the squid was ready so I wasn’t able to take any photos.

Dinner was two large hunks of meat, the very Spanish cut – chuletón de buey (similar to T-bone) which is excellent on the grill. We had this with hand-cut french fries, fried sweet potatoes and a green salad. The meat was chewy and marbled in fat, completely different in texture and flavor from the Argentine cuts of meat we had the previous weekend. We finished off our meal with a bowl of frozen summer fruits – peaches, nectarines and strawberries and extra-short espressos.
