Most people have probably heard about this famous dish with saffron and seafood. While many think of Paella as the national dish in Spain, it’s more of a regional dish from Valencia, which is the home of the Paella.

When we say tortilla in Sweden, we usually talk about thin bread made from flour. In Spain however, a tortilla is basically a Spanish omelet made of eggs and potatoes. You can eat it for breakfast, lunch or even for dinner.
When it comes to Spanish vegetarian food, Tumbet is one of the most delicious dishes. It’s a traditional dish from the Spanish island of Mallorca, which is why it’s known as Mallorquin Tumbet.

During the colonization, the Spanish conquistadors introduced Empanadas in America. And while it is regarded as a Spanish food, it might have Arabian origins and was perhaps created during the Arab rule in Spain. Nonetheless, Empanadas can be found everywhere in Spain and they are delicious. It’s a baked pastry that has been stuffed with various fillings such as minced meat and cheese.
