Anchovies and Chocolate / Boquerones Y Chocolate

ANOTHER TRADITION. OUR friends Steve and Hector (San Diego friends now living in Santa Fe, New Mexico) are regularly in Spain. We met Wednesday night in Málaga for dinner at Mesón de Cervantes. Another perfect meal and, as always, the best dinner companions we could ask for. No pictures of any of us. I hope you don't mind looking at food — and Moose the Cat.

OTRA TRADICIÓN. NUESTROS amigos Steve y Hector (amigos de San Diego que ahora viven en Santa Fe, Nuevo México) están regularmente en España. Nos reunimos el miércoles por la noche en Málaga para cenar en el Mesón de Cervantes. Otra comida perfecta y, como siempre, los mejores compañeros de cena que podríamos pedir. No hay fotos de ninguno de nosotros. Espero que no te importe mirar fotos de la comida — y el Gato Moose.

      The shrimp was incredible. That was Jerry's tapa portion. I had a full platter as my main course.

      I had the anchovies, an entire portion (huge plate) of the shrimp, and the brownie. Moose doesn't really NEED anything more to eat.

      Until moving to Spain, I HATED anchovies. Turns out I had never had good anchovies. Now, I'll try most any of them -- as long as there are no bones or eyes!

      I've had that as my main course before (that was Jerry's this time). It's unbelievably delicious. Perfect every single time.

      They watch them flit by the drain hole (and land on the outside drain pipe).

      This is an amazing place. Food, service, warmth. It's a good thing we have to go into Málaga or we'd be there constantly.

  9. The anchovies look terrific. Seems Moose was missing all the aerial action.

      The anchovies were perfect. Moose knew all about the aerial action. That's why he was watching the drain. He keeps hoping one will pay us a visit.

      Oh, he knows. He's watching the drain in the hopes that one will fly inside.
