Things to Eat at a Bullfight

This is the third of three posts on a trip I took to see the bullfights at the Plaza de Toros last December.  I posted pictures of the fight and the costumes, and this final post will share a few pictures of the food.  Like a baseball game, the food at the Plaza de Toros focussed on sweet and salty, with everything from ice cream, to meringues, to chips.  Some of the more surprising items were ramen noodles, which seemed quite popular, and esquite, which is corn in a cup with mayo, cheese, chile, and lime.  The meringues were particularly good, and, although I’ve had better esquite, it’s certainly unique.

Outside the stadium are a huge number of taquerias, which are popular with fans before the fights.  We went to one, in particular, Villamelón, which was outstanding.  Perhaps that will be a later post….
