24 Dec Madrid, Spain
At 6:20pm the tour group set out for Plaza Major to go for our Christmas Eve dinner. This was an extra dinner Globus included for us because the Guggenheim museum in Bilbao will be closed tomorrow so we won’t be able to go in. It doesn’t feel like Christmas Eve. We had dinner at a restaurant in Plaza Major.
Appetisers: zucchini rolled around salmon topped with a light cream cheese with black caviar; entrée: slices of duck with a sweet sauce and flavoured rice
Mains: Cochinillo (suckling pig) or grilled hake with sliced potatoes
Dessert: traditional Christmas sweet pastries in packaging. The pork was nicer than the fish. The texture of the biscuits was like Chinese New Year biscuits – crumbly and sweet.
