That night, we were looking for a casual place to watch the Real Madrid vs Barcelona futbol game. We had previously tried to get tickets with no luck. Well, the luck would be 500 euros each but that's the kind of luck none of wanted to part with. Instead, we asked our concierge about nearby bars or restaurants that may be showing the game. We walked around a bit. Not to our surprise, many of the places were packed already. People had staked out their tables hours prior to the game. Again, the Spaniards do not care about loitering. We need to remember that. We eventually find a place that was both a bar and a restaurant. While the front of the house was packed with avid fans, the back was pretty empty. There on the wall in the back was one tv and we immediately chose the table right in front.
And jamon. We didn't have enough ham yet. A nice plate of thinly sliced ham. This time we skipped the iberico and went for serrano instead. A more affordable cured pork product but still very delicious.
