A full experience of a destination is never complete without a taste of its authentic dishes. A trip to Spain is an adventure rich in history and culture but one must also complete the gourmet journey. If you're headed here anytime soon, here are five Spanish dishes you must not miss.

Tortilla de patatas (Spanish Omelette)

According to Spanish Recipes, this authentic Spanish delicacy is made from simple local ingredients. The main components are potatoes, olive oil, eggs, and onions while others have different add-ons depending on their preference. A highly recommended version is in Bar Nestor which only serves during lunch and dinner to 16 lucky guests.

Fabada Asturiana

If you prefer a hot treat, this local stew is for you. It is made with Asturian buttery beans mixed together with bacon, chorizo, pork shoulder, and morcilla sausages. This hearty stew is best paired with the local cider. A popular restaurant that serves superb fabada is Casa Gerardo.

Gazpacho

The most common delicacy found almost in every tapas bar is Gazpacho. This flavorful appetizer is a mix of ripe tomatoes, olive oil, garlic, cucumber and pepper that are blended smoothly together. A must try is the Eslava's Gazpacho with organic ingredients fresh from its garden.

Gambas Al Ajillo

This simple dish would definitely make you feel at home in Spain. With its irresistible aroma, one would want a taste of these sizzling prawns cooked with olive oil, garlic and chili. La Casa Del Abuelo is the place to try your first Gambas al ajillo.

Paella Valenciana

The first food that comes to mind when you think of Spain is paella--and it has many different variations.  Paella Valenciana is a dish made of chicken, saffron, runner beans, butter beans, and the most important ingredient--Bomba or Calasaparra rice. According to The Telegraph, Casa Salvador is a must try with its paella recipe that has been served for more than 60 years.

Authentic dishes represent the rich culture of its origin by showcasing the local ingredients that make them unique. Spanish dishes are a must try since they give a taste of the best that Spain has to offer.
