  1. Actually this asador is not in Galicia but rather in Jimenez de Jamuz, close to Leon. And yes, it's as good as the article says it is.
  2. I was there and lived to tell, even after eating through 4 different oxen and about 5kg of steak for 4 people. more pics here.
  3. Jeans and shirt is fine for places like Sucre, Thymus, Nectarine, MAAT, etc. As a matter of fact I can't think of a place you would need a jacket, but it won't be out of place if you decide to wear one.
  4. Quimet is always a top choice if you don't have any preserved/canned food bias (you'd be surprised how many people react adversely when I tell them about Quimet). I'm not a big fan of Inopia, I tend to recommend Carles Abella's TapaƧ24 instead, which is similar enough, not so crowded and has better daily specials, particularly anything seafood related with the word plancha next to it. Unfortunately Ca L'Isidre is not on my top choices to recommend. Overpriced, stuffy, and you can get the same quality elsewhere. Isidre is not the only restauranteur getting his stuff from la Boqueria, you kn
  5. considerably more, but we had angulas (elvers) percebes and baby octopus, which are among the most expensive products of their category. Haven't been to Elkano yet. thanks for your answer....Double- 140? 125 a head IIRC. two bottles of wine, I think. And now for something completely different, I just came back from a good (but not extraordinary) dinner at Lasarte, were we spent a bit over 150 a head. I'd much rather spend it at Rias if you ask me.

  7. So that's what it is, you need to watch it for like a year before you get it . I think I'll stick to Monty Python, Eddie Izzard and the like then, since I usually start laughing during the first 12 seconds. Much more cost effective if you ask me.
  8. Seriously. That conversation does not belong in this thread. Do you really think you are helping out here? Can I point out that there hasn't been a post here since 9:30 this morning? I'll post where I like unless I'm breaking a guideline. A life lived very much online can be discussed online. A question was asked. I helped answer it. Out of respect to Stone, I didn't pursue it. I'm fine with that. If you need everyone to know that you are a saint, I'd take a cue from you and suggest that conversation does not belong in this thread. No, I'm not a saint nor do I need people

  10. Bux passed away yesterday afternoon after a long battle with cancer.
  11. I had missed this thread completely until now. Fantastic! Here are a few favorites: an old master. another . . and finally, let's talk cheese, shall we?
  12. not the first time Zizou uses his head: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c_-_SR62uz0
  13. yeah, fuck you too Matt. It was a joke! ok, maybe I was overly sensitive. In that case, take my remark as a joke too.
  14. yeah, fuck you too Matt.

  16. Yes, well, thanks Sam, we really love the English too. Er, yeah right, I forgot that long lost love that the English have for the Argies. As I said, and as they showed it the other night, dirty rotten C****. Be as it may, it was the incompetence of a coach and the lack of passion of the players that got England out of the cup (and to some extent, the same thing applies to Argentina), not a referee. Keep your focus, don't start an unnecessary fight.

  18. Get up later and submit it to a peer-reviewed journal, and you could pass for Mongo. I get up late and submit stuff to peer-reviewed journals.
  19. OMG two days with no football.... what are we supossed to do now?????? I don't think I can go back to my regular life now.
  20. Well, Monsieur Obelix... I was just going to ask the same thing about France! That's a great question too, although this particular Obelix is not a Monsieur, but rather a... Che Obelix
  21. When they play Argentina in the final game? yes, that's what I fear, precisely.
  22. Is the Brazilian side eventually going to play some football?
