Mmh I Think I’ll Have 2 Plates of Big Holes!

I love travelling, though it has to be said that I didn’t really enjoy the travelling I did while researching my forthcoming blockbusting, unputdownable bestselling book, which if you haven’t heard is a Travelogue, called rather cleverly I thought, ‘The Cat’s Travelogue.’

Not only didn’t I enjoy the travelling I was more or less forced to visit countries that I would never ever think of travelling to, such as oh Bangladesh, Pakistan and two or three African countries, where even the locals don’t want to live in if they can help it and are desperate to immigrate from.

One of the great things about travelling is that you get the opportunity to taste the local cuisine or if you go to France you get to taste recipes stolen from the world’s master cooks the Italians.

Sometimes when you travel to countries where, for reasons best known to themselves, they have yet to learn one’s language their attempts to translate a menu into English has me (and I hope everyone else or I am wasting my time here) rolling in the aisles.

Here is a wonderful menu from a rather quaint restaurant in Madrid, as I said I rather fancy the ‘Fried Big Holes’ mainly because they must be better than the ‘Calluses to the Madrilenian’ surely?

Bacon I Don’t Want To Try!

At first when I saw this wrapper I thought that someone had sent me a label from China where Bow Wow and gulp Pussy Cat are regular menu items – but no oddly enough this wrapper comes from Spain.

I can tell you now if this is fast food in Spain I don’t want to try it!

Then horror of horrors struck me if they have Dog Bacon rolls will they eat a dessert of Stewed Cat and Custard?

If the Spanish, who I have always found to be rather nice unless you are a Bull of course, treat their animals as fast food like this I think they deserve to follow Ireland and go bust!
