What’s the most famous pincho in Spain? Probably tortilla de patata (Spanish potato omelette). You can find this in basically every bar and it’s a staple in the Spanish diet. For example, when some of my preschool students play house, they flip tortillas in their plastic frying pans. To put it mildly, I am obsessed with this dish. I eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and if several days go by and I haven’t had a slice of tortilla, I go into a mild panic and head to my favorite tortilla bar, Porto Vecchio. If I have time, I even make them on the weekends, though flipping the perfect tortilla still eludes me. I posted a recipe last year for making tortilla de patata, if you are feeling adventurous in the kitchen. They are actually not that difficult to make.
Have you ever tried tortilla de patata? What’s your country’s staple dish?
