Patatas Fritas y una Caña - Plaza del Salvador - Sevilla, Spain

This has to be my favorite part of Sevilla and it’s certainly one of my favorite characteristics of Spain.  Cañas outside in a plaza (this one is Sevilla’s Plaza del Salvador) on a nice day with your closest Spanish compatriots.  Our cañas were served for 1.10 euros from “La Antigua Bodeguita” located on the edge of the square.  There’s something about a glass of beer in a public square that seems just a bit illicit and dangerous as to make it one notch tastier.  Pair it with fresh fried “Patatas Fritas” from the vendor selling them in the square and you have something as delicious as it is bad for you.  Damn the torpedoes.  If you ever make it there, I’m told it goes on from midday well into the night.  Go.
