The Oldest Restaurant in the World

VEGETARIANS: CLOSE YOUR EYES NOW!:

Tonight, In Madrid, I ate suckling pig at the oldest restaurant in the world: Botin. It first opened its doors in 1725 and had been in continuous operation at the same site ever since. I opted for a three course dinner that began with gazpacho (cold soup), suckling pig with roasted potatoes, bread, sangria or mineral water, and ice cream or gelato for dessert. Nothing fancy, just delicious and excellent. The present oven, at work since 1868, burns evergreen oak that has a unique flavor that has made Castilian roasted meats highly esteemed all over the world.
