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..
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!
