With traditional Spanish tapas, you can try all different kinds of food, such as albóndigas (meatballs), calamares (fried squid), or tortilla de patatas (a potato omelet). Spanish food is usually cooked in the Mediterranean style with olive oil, garlic, tomatoes, and peppers, and is known to be quite healthy for you. Some popular summer dishes include paella (rice with vegetables and seafood) and gazpacho (a cold tomato soup). Dinner is normally eaten late, around 9 pm, but you can have a snack or sandwich to tide you over around 5 or 6 pm. For dessert you can enjoy churros dipped in chocolate or flan (a kind of custard) with caramel.
