Support your local casquería

Are you supporting your local casquería?

Maybe you should.

A lot of people have probably never spent any time at a casquería – the shop where they sell different kinds of organ meat. I think it’s cool just to know how many parts of a pig you could be eating. Nothing goes to waste. And it’s all pretty cheap.

This is the casquería in the Mercado Puente de Vallecas, my former neighborhood..

I’ve written a couple of articles about organ meat here on the blog, for example: Oreja de Cerdo.

Have fun!


P.S. Update, 2023: Those prices! This was back before massive inflation was driving the price of everything up, and before I moved to Barcelona, where things seem to be more expensive anyway. But the point stands: you should go to a casquería and get some collagen in your diet. Also, check out my article about my love affair with Spanish cuisine. Enjoy!

How did I end up in Spain? Why am I still here almost 20 years later? Excellent questions. With no good answer... Anyway, at some point I became a blogger, bestselling author and contributor to Lonely Planet. So there's that. Drop me a line, I'm happy to hear from you.
