Dig In With Much Bites: Eating Out in Madrid — The Vegetarian Edition

To be honest, I had never explored the vegetarian side of life. If someone told me that they were vegetarian, my usual reaction would usually go along the lines of “what do you mean you don’t eat no meat!?” Not that vegetarianism is a problem, just that I was always brought up to believe a meal was incomplete if it did not contain some type of meat based protein.

Adult that I am, believe you me that I had never eaten tacos until last September in New York.
