Valencia food with a difference.

A visit to the food market in a foreign city usually comes up with a few surprises. Valencia didn't disappoint.

There were of course mushrooms some of which may have been a bit strange to us Brits, but, how many people would be prepared to venture forth and try out these Valencian specialities ?

Or for the even more adventurous ?

Have to admit to not trying out these but was perhaps more disturbed by the whole sheep's heads complete with eyes and the lungs, possibly of pigs but who knows.
We headed out to the Moto GP circuit where more (cooked) food was on offer and got completely ripped off by not being able to speak any Spanish. A learning curve. A quick trip to the market tomorrow for picnic goodies will be much better although I might give the noses a miss.
