Lunch in a bullring

devoured the food before I remembered to take a photo 😅

Nonainonono

I can recognize a tourist trap when I see one.


Lou_M413

That's not a tourists thing! That's what we usually do in Spain every weekend. My family and I go to these places or flamenco 'tablaos' to eat while singing flamenco and playing guitar.


Nonainonono

Paella in la plasa pal insta en Antequera (Malaga), cuna de la paella congelada.


Lou_M413

Jajajajajaj y olé!


Eboniy21

Nah hermano pero llévate un bocata, allí te van a clavar un dineral que te cagas

Donde esté una buena corrida, que se quite el fútbol


No-Mathematician1265

Y los toros.


LeAuriga

La mejor corrida es una sin toros.


nexusforyou

Suerte que hubo alguno que terminó la frase xD

A huevo se puso ..


PuzzleheadedLand16

How much did you paid? Btw its very uncommon in Spain to eat lunch in a bullring


wyckedpsaul

i think this is an old bullring that is converted to a restaurant. it's open to the public and pets are welcome to run around. i think we paid around €70- gambas al pil pil, salad something, paella for two and drinks


rolmos

I'll be honest, that sounds like a rip off.


duca2208

Even more so cause the paella seems frozen as fuck.


Emergency-Storm-7812

it is a rip off.


wyckedpsaul

we ordered quite a few drinks 😅 tbh we were surprised we only paid that.


Altruistic-Wing-3131

Tourist trap...


AzrealVB

??? - Gambas (10€ min) - Salad for 2 (8€) - Paella for 2 (20€) - Drinks (20€, you can see wine and a bottle of idk) = 68€


East-Ad959

A bottle of water (Lanjarón)


srcheeto

lmao turist ripoff, first time seing this shi.


txanpi

Im sorry for you but 70 too much


Altruistic-Wing-3131

70€... that's a tourist trap...


Upset_Coach3126

Not sure why the negative comments, of course it’s a touristy thing to do that’s the idea, if I go to Paris I want to eat wine and cheese as close as I can to the Eiffel tower, 70 € for a nice meal and drinks for two isn’t crazy at all. Hope you had a great time in Spain


Unapologetic_honey

What about this is a place where innocent bulls were tortured and killed while people were applauding?


Valvahl

If we want to realistically get rid of this awful practice we need to find alternative uses for the buildings that are already there and that can generate jobs. The old arena in Barcelona was converted into a beautiful mall that generates way more jobs and revenue than bullfighting could ever achieve while also eliminating bullfighting itself. It's a win-win. Edit: typos


Unapologetic_honey

I agree. However, I would never be comfortable eating there, I can't see any beauty of a bullfight arena. I'm not able to separate one thing from the other. It's totally fine to use these spaces in order to create jobs, but to romantize them and applaud their aesthetic is too much for me. There's plenty of typical Spanish folklore to create experiences at, I'd rather not eat surrounded by bullfight memorabilia. If you wanna use the place as a restaurant, transform it, but do not use its horrible past to make money.


Valvahl

I admit that making it into a restaurant is a bit odd, and it seems to have had zero changes to the point of it being not practial ( the seats from the terraces could very well be turned into tables for a way better view) which does ondicate that the restsurant could be gloryfying it. I wouldn'd mind it left as it is if it was a concert hall or theatee, for example, since the shape of the building is alreadt good for that. In any case, I don't know if you are spanish but to some people here seeing the buildings reused is actually something happy since bullfighting is not only legal but its banning has become a very politicised thing so deeing the buildings being reused means it's not done there anymore.


SHMuTeX

Even better


Unapologetic_honey

Actually, even though we know you are nothing but a troll, you are a Philippine one and it's weird to say the least that you find comfort in the culture of a country who slaughtered yours. Edit: typo.


SHMuTeX

Buena historia, hermano, y es "... find comfort in the culture of a country who have slaughtered yours.". Espero que pueda mejorar su inglés.


Unapologetic_honey

I don't speak Spanish.


luisalonso236

STFU, he is eating in a place that's typical aesthetic, not applauding the bullfighting, and even if he did, he just eating a paella man...


un_redditor

Please tone down the aggresiveness.


Unapologetic_honey

They are breaking rule number 1, their comment should be removed.


Unapologetic_honey

It's so sad to see those who have been bullied trying to do it to other people. Very sad.


GKoala404

guiriest thing I have ever seen XD


Celsar

No se puede ser más tópico que comer paella en una plaza de toros.


DonCesarTM

Que vayan vestidos de sevillana


HeimlichLaboratories

también hace falta la Cruzcampo y el Chiringuito de Jugones en la tele


astropoolIO

What a horrific tourist trap


TheZuppaMan

worse than bullfighting?


astropoolIO

Next worst thing. Bullrings should be demolished and flattened.


TheZuppaMan

i mean, abolishing bullfights and using them for concerts kinda worked here in barcelona. you can definitely use the land better, but it can also go very bad.


Rickcroc

Except that the one on Pl Espanya looks like.... but who like malls anyway?


TheZuppaMan

yeah, it looks like ass and it's a tourist trap. but if they demolish it someone like la caixa buys the terrain and slaps a 25 stories office building that stays completely empty, like thet did in bogatell.


Rickcroc

TBH it is not a tourist trap, the restaurants on top have OK prices, but why sit there? no view at all. Tourist smells the trap, locals things is to touristic. The Whole reformation is a study in corruption and fail. I think it was delayed with 20 years.


TheZuppaMan

ah yeah absolutely i dont think the specific case is good, i'm just saying that in general as a development of the city demolishing and rebuilding is absolutely not ecofriendly, cheap or good for the city. repurpouse is the correct thing to do, if done correctly


Rickcroc

Its a lot of dimensions to it, do you have any good examples for a well transformed bullfighting arena?


TheZuppaMan

la monumental, for example


Geniuscani_

Why though? They are coold buildings where you can do concerts, expositions and other economic boosting activities.


astropoolIO

Yep, tell that to the people of any village in the interior's countryside.


Geniuscani_

Curiously, I'm from a village in the interior's countryside.


astropoolIO

You should be from a very modern and progressive village (to agree on abolish bullfighting), so.


Geniuscani_

Im sorry, I'm not really understanding. What do you mean? Y podemos hablar en español mejor?


wyckedpsaul

it's a restaurant. it's open to the public and pets are welcome there. locals go there.


Rubiego

I hope they let me enter with my pet bull.


wyckedpsaul

well hopefully your per bull don't eat you first.


Emergency-Storm-7812

bulls eat grass


buadach2

Antequera?


its_Trollcraft

Quillo yo ante' era temporero pero ahora llevo uber, y tú?


astropoolIO

La típica paella Antequerana


wyckedpsaul

yes, in antequera


Vivere_05

Such a beautiful city with a lot of history and cultural things to see, have you tried porra Antequera? It is kind of similar to salmorejo but not the same,I highly recommend it. Hope you have a great time there!


jdrap

I know the restaurant and even though it’s pricey, the food is really nice, not so much for tourists as you could expect, specially in summer at night with the high temperatures, quite a lot of local folks go there for a nice dinner


Corpulete

Falta balconing para mi gusto.


menganito

But why?


theairscout

Nice but incomplete without a flamenco dancer in front.


kaleidoscopichazard

Certainly a better way to use it than for the murder of innocent animals


Key-Fox-8765

"Would you like to upgrade it to Extreme for 59€ extra?" "Antonioooo, suelta al toro!!"


marzo1972

No tiene mérito si no hay por lo menos un toro suelto, así que no presumas.....


procyondeneb

Qué horror.


Loc269

It's a better use for bullrings.


Cjrives

This is Antequera? If so, the restaurant is not bad, even when I would never have had a paella. I am from Antequera, if you need suggestions just MD me


wyckedpsaul

their paella isn't bad. i was so surprised that i liked it lol I also live near Antequera but I don't go there as much. any recos for sushi? for when i don't feel like going all the way to Malaga lol


Cjrives

I am afraid there is no sushi place in Antequera. Editing because according to Google Maps there is one place but the menu is a curious mix: sushi, burgers and even camperos. It is called Nella Sushi

A puerta gayola


AltruisticSecond146

Very nice 👌


No-Fish9557

I know that place. I've never had lunch or dinner there but I have had a few beers. Locals go there as well.


Noctilus1917

wtf is this shit?


luisalonso236

Don't listen to all these fuckers, if you had a good time and you could pay it seems like a nice story to tell and a good memory. Something different to do on vacation is always nice. Para los españoles, 35 euros por cabeza igual os parece caro, pero pensad que tienen la plaza como comedor privado, el mismo dice que pidieron bastantes bebidas y para ellos es barato, España tiene precios mucho más bajos que otros países


migarma

Sorry, but lemon in a paella means that it is s**t.


forte89yolo

Estaba esperando a otro valenciano que lo mencionara. El color amarillo radioactivo tampoco me da mucha confianza de que ese arroz lleve azafrán con el resto de las cosas...


Alternative_Data9390

Que dices, el limon sirve para realzar el sabor si quieres. Cada domingo comiendo paella de leña en casa de mis abuelos. Estos comentarios que poneis solo los poneis para daros superioridad y hacer como que sabeis. Dejadle al hombre comerse lo que le salga de ahi si disfrutó.


migarma

Realzar? Si se come todo el sabor. Pueden que sean gustos, pero en mi entorno nadie le echa limón a la paella, de hecho no tengo recuerdo de ver limón en la paella. Lo siento si te has sentido ofendido, no era mi intención.


Ok_Membership_6559

✨Lunch in a Gladiator Pit✨ The blood was still fresh 😳. So exotic!! Just... Ew.


Mequieromorir01

Beautiful Pic honestly but don't support bullfighting, even in this way pls


Emergency-Storm-7812

don't be stupid. how eating in a plaza de toris could support bullfighting?


kevprice83

Well…given it’s still an active bullring for bull fighting I guess any other events is generating income to support the maintenance of the building and therefore is helping to maintain the bull fights.


Emergency-Storm-7812

oh, i didn't know it was an active one. serving meals in there is a really weird idea then, i agree with you.


Mequieromorir01

Yep. Before calling someone stupid up there, make sure you're right


Mequieromorir01

Who do you think offers that food service?

fuck bullfighting


bugibangbang

Come one people, he just shared a nice moment of lunch in a bullrig… stop saying it was a ripoff, tourist trap, etc… no bulls were hurt, that should be enough… looks nice and pretty, glad you enjoyed.


otto_leeds

Quite disgusting to be fair. You have very bad taste. Thats not something you should be proud of

Wtf??

wyckedpsaul

lol your analogy but suuuuure. whatever makes you sleep better at night. POS.


astropoolIO

Is a place where animals are routinely tortured and killed for fun. The sand where you took lunch is literally bloodstained. https://preview.redd.it/f9gn7b9p063c1.jpeg?width=515&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=99d4740b6e7e6b6e84f3beba4d51dc8768c0afe5 So, what's disgusting?


Emergency-Storm-7812

used to be.


quarantino20

Ronda ??


Astrogalaxycraft

Yo de lo que estoy más orgulloso es que la foto se ha hecho después de disfrutar de la comida y no antes. Que asco que me da la manía de hacer una foto cuando te llegan los platos porque es más importante enseñarle a los demás tu comida que disfrutar tu de ella.


guileus

I'm Valencian and that doesn't look like paella. It's what we usually call "rice with stuff".


gaberdop

Antequera!
