Allie Diehl (Spain): After being in Spain for about a week, I realized that I had yet to try any authentic Spanish dishes. That night, my friends and I went out for tapas, which is just what Spainards call small shareable dishes.
We found a cute little restaurant with the strangest assortment of ingredients in each unique dish. For me, the oddest tapa was the “pastel con zanahoria, calabacín, y ali oli de ajo confitado.” It tasted like a chilled vegetarian lasagna with a pudding-like texture, but we all enjoyed it immensely.
Maria Lorditch (France): I have not eaten anything I would call “strange” here because everything is a million times better than the food in America. Everything is so incredibly fresh: the bread, the meats, the vegetables and even the beer.
