Eating Toothless / Comiendo Sin Diente

La versión español está después de la versión inglés.

OUT TO DINNER with visiting friends Saturday night. I had one less tooth (removed Friday morning) and a very sore mouth. There sure is a lot of good food here even if I don't want to chew. We went to El Abrevaero Restaurante (also known by English-speaking mouths as Arrivederci, Arrivaducci, Abracadabra, Abravadura — click here for that story) and I chose a main dish of Revuelto con Gambas. Although you do scramble eggs to make a revuelto, it's very different from what we know as scrambled eggs. Among the differences: there can be more additions to the dish than there are eggs and revueltos are consistently more lightly cooked. And the freshest, best-quality eggs are used or it won't taste like a real revuelto.

Dessert was natillas, a Spanish custard dish topped by a sponge biscuit. Delicious, and relatively painless. But I still topped off my meal with Paracetamol!

FUIMOS A CENAR con amigos el sábado por la noche. Tuve un diente menos (sacado el viernes por la mañana) y una boca muy dolorida. Seguro que hay un montón de buena comida aquí, incluso si no quiero masticar. Fuimos a El Abrevaero Restaurante (también conocido por 'las bocas que hablan inglés' como: Arrivederci, Arrivaducci, Abracadabra, Abrevadura) y disfruté de Revuelto con Gambas. El postre era natillas. 

Todo delicioso, y relativamente indoloro. ¡Pero seguí la comida con paracetamol!

  1. Soft food is certainly good when it comes to post-dental surgery

      And I had attachments added to my teeth Wednesday, which are now requiring me to learn a different way to chew! Ice cream is looking better and better.

      Since I started having revueltos here in Spain, American scrambles just don't do it for me anymore. But I hope you enjoyed yours. Or maybe you meant breakfast would be natillas?

  3. Your dinner looks delicious! And soft on your mouth. Fresh eggs definitely make a difference. A friend occasionally gives us some and you can taste the difference!
    Have a wonderful Friday!

      Often, the revueltos have too much salt for my taste. This one was perfect.

      It really was. And two dinners at Mesón Salvador followed this one. Just wait!

      The pulled tooth is already a memory... except that I can't believe how quickly things are aligning in my mouth now. But, I'm only mid-week of tray set #3 of 67 weekly trays. So the braces are a long haul.

      Hmmm... Viagra... THAT explains it. In any case, it made me forget about the pain. Their natillas is freshly made (as is everything at Abrevaero). So good.
