Spain's en salata mixta of museums

Harvey Broadbent

Research output: Contribution to Newspaper/Magazine/WebsiteArticle


Sunny Spain - viva! The country has done a great line in holidays for nearly half a century, especially for the British, if you like crowded, stony, grey beaches. Once in a Spanish restaurant, and once only, I ordered a 'la plata mixta' consisting not of a delicious selection of tapas, as I thought and hoped, but of a fried egg, a sliver of rubbery pork, and chips. The fish and chips, also on the menu, would have been preferable. But Spain is like that, a bit surprising. And it is the same with museums, though the fare is generally far superior to the country's culinary offerings for visitors.
