Seafood at El Rincon del Chirri SL

Very recently we spent almost 2 weeks in the Spanish town of El Puerto de Santa María. We stayed in a friend’s apartment and it was a really nice break away from the bad news and rush of life back in Ireland. Unfortunately we brought the rain with us but that didn’t dampen our spirits!

One of our meals out was in El Rincon del Chirri SL where they specialise in seafood. This was only one of the dishes served and while I’m not usually one to eat seafood I was glad I tried it here. We also had what I think were Sea anemones in a crispy bread covering but they tasted like seawater and I only had 1 or 2! Our Spanish friends described them as eating sea water which was a very apt description!

Oh yes, this image 800 pixels wide, slightly larger than the photos I used to post. View the post itself to view the larger version as I think this theme shrinks the image on the main page. Like the new size?

    I’m not a seafood eater, either. How do you go about eating something like that?

      With difficulty and manually with your fingers. I bit or sucked the shellfish out of the shell. Very messy but tasted nice!

        They didn’t give you one of those tiny forks?

          I’m afraid not. We had normal size forks but it really was easier using our fingers! 🙂
