  • Trivia

    • The roasted suckling pig that Andrew tried is called "conchinillo". These piglets are usually a few days to several weeks old.

    • Andrew mentions that at El Bulli every diner receives 22 courses. This is by far more than most restaurants.

  • Quotes

    • Andrew: What's next? Yak dumplings in Mongolia? Grilled guinea pig in Ecuador? Camel meat balls in Morocco... who cares? But remember, if it looks good, eat it!

    • Andrew: I'd rather eat a plate of ham than a pound of ice cream anyday.

    • Andrew: I just ate a tree...

    • Andrew: Bizarre doesn't explain the experience I just had!

    • (Andrew offers his guide, Ramon, a bite of fish egg jerky. Ramon refuses.)
      Andrew: Ramon! (Ramon takes a bite) I think Ramon is a little freaked out. See, what you have to understand is that, culturally, just because it exists in a country, doesn't mean everyone eats it. I think most Spaniards are afraid of this stuff.

  • Notes

    • Andrew estimates that his meal at La Trainera would cost around 500 Euros and feed two or three people.

  • Allusions

    • Andrew: Like, buttah!

      When Andrew tries the roast baby pig, he says, "Like buttah!" imitating Barbra Streisand.
