For those new to Spanish cuisine, it can be difficult to work out what it’s all about at the beginning. Dishes vary depending on which region they are from, so you’ll find Birmingham Spanish restaurants drawing inspiration from many Spanish regions, or specialising in one specific local cuisine. For example, many of the top Spanish restaurants in Birmingham focus on Basque, Galician and Valencian dishes, each with special attributes and signature specialties. Expect to stumble across croquettes with jamon (cured ham), queso (cheese) and bacalao (cod fish) filings, Spanish tortilla made from eggs, potato and in some places, onion which is a combination of an omelette and cake, and of prawns sauteed in garlic. One of the most famous Spanish dishes that is guaranteed to be found in the plethora of Spanish restaurants throughout Birmingham is of course, paella. A Venetian dish, based on rice, often made with seafood or meat, and traditionally charred on the bottom is arguably the most famous Spanish dish, and Birmingham restaurants sure know how to do a good one!
