In Albacete favor the “Mojete” a  light and simple salad of tomato, onion, olives, boiled egg and tuna

In Almería:   Perricos The perrico is not a mutt, but a well-seasoned pork sausage including cinnamon and saffron.

Badajoz: the “ Migas” bred crumbs with sardines, melon, grapes or whatever

Caceres: Torta del Casar a cheese fill pie with strong character.

Cádiz: Tortillita de Camarones  Shrimp pancakes -a mass of chickpea flour and wheat with water, parsley, chives and shrimp- addictive!
