Lunch Time

By the time lunch comes around you are ready for it. If you skipped the “merienda” you’ll be ravenous by 3:00 pm. So many Spaniards have a little tapa while waiting for lunch to be ready. A couple of olives, potato chips or some “picos or regañás” are enough. Some people may also  have either jamón or manchego cheese. The lunch meal usually consists of a primer plato (ensalada, sopa, salmorejo, paella, or other light food). This is followed by a heartier dish (rabo de toro, chuletas, cocido, lentejas, etc.). Ofcourse this all washed down with some Rioja or Ribera del Duero wine.
