Despite being overbuilt and touristy in certain areas, Andalusia still has something untouched and raw about it. While most foodies refer to the Basque Country (which I love, of course) as the capital of gastronomy in Spain, it’s in Andalusia’s little fishing villages that you will find some of the world’s best seafood and other undiscovered culinary pleasures. Needless to say, my FAVOURITE food in the world, some of the best jamon comes from there. Stay tuned for my revised Spain’s list and my trip to ALMADRABA next week. Meanwhile, see my friend’s @mr.holyglory, local and expert in Andalusia tips for there. (Same as mine with some additions).
