You’re in The country. Situations are different. When eating at restaurants, keep these rules in your mind.

l. Butter? Fuggedabuttit. There’s no butter offered. And aren’t you lucky? You receive a bottle of essential olive oil you are cooking. Drizzle it in your bread and other things that does not walk.

2. Water isn’t offered. You need to buy water together with your meals in many restaurants. And believe the Scoopettes, you need to purchase it.  Many people drink water here. We don’t (we reside in Barcelona – this can be different in other areas of The country).

You’ll get essential olive oil, not butter, for the bread

3.  You might want to request pepper and salt. Some restaurants take into account that an insult.

4.  By The month of january 2, 2011, smoking was banned in restaurants. Also it involved damn time.

We like that nobody hurries you out of trouble to show tables in The country

5.  The News on the best offer on meals are recption menus del Dia. Search for the blackboard before restaurants.  These bargains could be eaten between 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. 3 or 4 courses. Wine incorporated. The Scoopettes love Menu del Dia.

6. Should you request a doggy bag, the servers will think you belong back in your cruiseship.

7. Services are slow. Really slow. There won’t be a chirpy server asking,  “Everything okey dokey here folks?”  If you want something, flap your fingers in mid-air and say, “Por favor” (please).

8. You’ll have to say Por favor to obtain your check.  Servers don’t hurry you.  You are able to take two hrs more than one mug of coffee.  Hopefully, you are able to leave your Type A personality in your own home. Take a look at check. They frequently overcharge (and perhaps undercharge).

9. Tip 10% in a good restaurant. Coffee and sandwiches, no tip.  A euro or more for any regular meal.

10.  Be careful about your purse. Place it inside your lap. Not on the ground or hanging in your chair. Thievery is a huge condition in vacationers areas.

11.  And, por favor, have another bottle of effective Spanish wine.

The Secret of the Epic Delmonico Steak at Prime Grill


Lbolting005: A good steak doesn't need all that mumble jumble, bread coating, saucing and all that extra. All you need is salt, pepper, and maybe some garlic to enjoy the pure flavor of the steak, itself.

Lisa Lisa: Cream cheese and meat… kosher?

Fred Flinstone: Over cooked. Can get beef jerky cheaper and quicker at the corner store.

Anytime Baby: Funny how many haters are commenting… over a steak. Guess what, if you disagree with the method, the ingredients, or you like your steak grilled medium rare with just salt and pepper, stay home and cook it the way you like it, or go to your favorite restaurant that cooks your steak EXACTLY the way YOU like it. This video wasn't MAKING you eat that steak they were cooking. I like mine aged, then lightly smoked, then grilled with salt and pepper to a perfect med-rare, but I would still love to try this steak to experience the different flavors, and maybe find something new that I like… or I could be like you knuckleheads, and moan and groan about some food you'll never eat

Josh Russom: Searing or using bread crumb does not hold the juice in any better then without. All it does is create a better flavor. If you want it to be juicy, do not over cook it and let the meat set around 10 minutes before serving.

Kevin P: I guess this is why any average joe can cook a steak with salt and pepper but it takes a chef with years of experience to create something like this. Keep talking about how your steak on the bbq grill is so amazing and pure you chef you

endocry: Anyone else catch his Beastie Boys reference?

Lenkhothang Singson: why do you have to waste the gas by burning them when you dont put on any pan on it….🙄🙄🙄🙄

RSidney B: I love it when purists complain about adding flavors to food. Let's keep going with this!\nWho needs vanilla or strawberries in their ice cream? Pure tiny, shaved crystals of a good cream is all you need!\nWhy add basil or garlic to tomatoes for a sauce? If you've got good tomatoes you shouldn't need anything else! \nHalf the fun of cooking is playing with flavors (the other half is creating something good!).

Michael Lites: That's not Kosher. Just saying.
