Spaniards Have Jews on the Menu

There aren't many Jews in Spain. That whole Inquisition thing is the primary reason.

But when we ate at the outstanding Café Ricordi in Madrid, we were surprised to find out that they are plentiful enough to serve for dinner.

Here's the menu item in Spanish. Spanish is lousy, but it looked to me like this says "Green Jews with Foie."

So we ask for and check the English version of the menu.

Yup. Green Jews. Delicious Green Jews.

We ate here anyway. Everything we ordered was excellent, though we were not brave enough to try the Judias Verdes, with or without foie. I'm a Jew who likes ham, but even my unkosher habits have limits.

This is probably a decent explanation.
