Re: trains in jerez

The only way to take the train from Jerez to Malaga is to take the train up to either Dos Hermanas or Seville itself then change to get the Seville to Malaga train.
As an alternative it is possible to take a bus from Jerez to Malaga but takes a long time and I think train is more comfortable.
The RENFE web site is lousy for getting connecting train times so you either go to the station or a ticketing agent and ask or go to the Renfe web site and plug in journeys from Jerez to Seville then Seville to Malaga. There are some faster trains called AVANT on the Seville/Malaga route that go via Cordoba but they are more expensive that the regular train.

Travel Tips for Jerez de la Frontera

Rijones al Jerez

by lomi

This dish was my top favourite tapas in Jerez. As soon as I got home I found a recipe, refined it and came up with this one:

Rijones al Jerez or Kidneys in Jerez Sherry Sauce

Ingredients
• 10 fresh lamb kidneys or two pigs kidneys
• 1 big onion, chopped
• 4 tablespoons olive oil
• 4 oz bacon
•4 garlic clove, finely chopped
• 2 tablespoon flour
• 4 fl. oz dry sherry & 4floz of stock
• 1 tablespoon tomato concentrate
• 2 sprig thyme or tsp
• Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Preparation
Remove membranes from the kidneys and cut out the middle cores from the kidneys, then cut them into dices.

Fry the onion in 2 tablespoons of oil over a low heat in a frying pan. When it starts to soften add the diced bacon and garlic. Remove and reserve the onion and bacon from the pan and add 1-2 tablespoons more olive oil.

Put in the diced kidneys, a handful at a time, over the highest heat and stir occasionally. When they are sealed, pull them to the sides of the pan and add the next handful. When they are all sealed and coloured, return the onions and bacon, if necessary add more oil, sprinkle with flour and stir in til browned, add tomato concentrate. Remove from heat.

Add stock, sherry, and thyme and bring to a simmer, cover 15 minutes. Season to taste. Eat!

Buen aprovecho! If you try the recipe please let me know how you got on.

Tapas/Medias/Raciones

by H0BB1T

When you go to a bar there are different ways to order, depending on the size of the dish you want to ask for.

- Tapa: It is a sample size, a degustation of the dish. For example if you ask a "tapa" of meatballs, they will serve you two units for example.
- Media: This is half ration. Half portion ... bigger than a tapa but less than a racion.
-Ración: This is the whole ration, full dish.

Why there are these distinctions? Well, we prefer to eat a little bit of many things, rather than just only one dish. Depending on the number of people that is going to eat, we ask for tapas, medias or raciones.

Hope this helps you :)

A Quality Mexican

by blint about Chicguagua

I like Mexican food and as I live in Spain I normally take the opportunity to eat something different when I eat out. If you find the Spanish food too salty, too bland or just not to your tastes, don't worry you don't have to resort to bad quality food such as McDonald's, instead you can try this great little Mexican in Jerez.

It is little and there isn't much room to eat at the tables, but it is beautifully decorated, with a cosy atmosphere and friendly staff.

There isn't much choice on the menu (a signal that what there is on the menu is done well) and nothing is really that spicy, but there are some extremely tasty dishes and you can always order spicy sauce on the side.

Tax is not added on (IVA) so please bare this in mind.

There are photos attached of the restaurant and the food. The taco's were great and cheap at 2.30 a taco, chicken (pollo) or beef (tenera). I had the beef one and was more than pleasantly surprised.

For my main course I had Carnitas con Queso and it was really really tasty, from the beef to the cheese. Highly recommended at €6.90.

To drink there was Mexican beer such as Coronita, Pacifico or Negra Modela or if you want something different I saw one young couple order something great that looked like Margarita. I'm sure they must have Sangria too.

If you don't want to walk...

The tourist train starts from the Plaza Arenal, close to the Alcazar. It is parked across from the Colegio Publico just behind the statue of of Miguel De Cervantes.

It has 4 different routes, at different hours.
Starting at 10 am it leaves once an hour.
Each hour it travels along a different route.
Then begins again at 1800 hours repeating the 4 different routes that it travels in the morning.

Runs every day except Sunday.

The Square that's not there !

by alucas

Plaza Arenal is the main formal square in Jerez

or was until they dug it up in 2004 to build an underground car park ............

I trust that they'll put it back again afterwards.

Update - May 2006

The car park is finished and open, and the square is being reinstated. It should be finished by mid-summer. The statues and fountains are back in place, and the paving is well under way.

If you look at the Jerez website, there is an aerial photograph (part of the map facility) that was taken whilst the square was closed !
