Also Hamburger

A pretty looking plate of burger, fries, obligatory caramelized onions, with some grilled pepper slices.

I'd lose the 2 parsley sprigs and the random sprinklings of paprika though. Decorative garnishes ought to have some vague relation to the dish being served.

Al very nice and that but take a look at that burger! You'll encounter this incredible disappointment in Spain. Sometimes the "hamburger" is a compressed patty of an unidentifiable mix of meats and can have a high percentage of actual ham in it!

Note: to boot this goes beyond open-faced; there actually is no bun at all!

I won't tell you exactly where this was; you're not likely to ever get there anyway. And the whole point of this post it more to warn you about the burger phenomena in Spain rather than any one particular spot.

Lesson learned: Ask what burger is made of -- hope that the answer is "fresh ground beef".

Oh my... my Nebraska blood is curdling a bit right now. I actually know what fresh from the butcher ground beef should be and that ain't it...
