Beat this for a tapa!

Postby concorde » Mon May 18, 2009 6:25 am

Browsing through Granada Tourism website and found this appetising tapa.

A famous speciality of the provincial capital is Sacromonte Omelette, a dish not suited to delicate palates as it is made from marrow, cooked brains, bulls testicles and eggs.


This is one not to try at home or indeed anywhere :shock:

It's a pretty gross thing to put on a tourist website, and can't imagine anyone asking for that recipe, not to mention trying to source some of the ingredients.

Yes Katy, all tapas in the Granada Province are complimentary, aren't we the lucky ones :lol:
Happily I've never come across this freebie!

Katy, that is truly gross, however I think I'd spot a bulls b*ll in amongst prawns :lol: , plus the fact I always carry a couple of little plastic bags with me, I'm too polite to leave a tapa if it looks or tastes dodgy therefore the local dogs usually get a free titbit.

I had a Sacramonte tortilla years ago at a venta near Granada. I had spent three days in bed ill from salmonella poisoning (gazpacho was the culprit I believe) and fancied a light tortilla. It tasted delicious, but when I asked what all the little white pieces in it were and was told "sesos" I promptly brought the lot back up :lol: The bull b******s weren't mentioned, but I haven't tried it since :roll:

Eggs? Yuck!

btw - the portions of testicles are smaller if the matador loses.
