Are they served in many places/regions? I'd like to try them? Do they have a certain taste? I tend to like to try Offal as it is rare to get certain things outside of liver, kidneys and heart here in the states.

  1. They are not so common. I believe the beef version used to be offered in taverns near the bull rings in Madrid.

    1. Andalusia, there are several restaurants that serves them as well as other parts of the bull around the Plaza de Toros in Seville.

      1. Not to be confused with "Criadillas de Tierra", a sort of white truffle normally served with scrambled eggs around Trujillo. Criadillas (the real stuff) are actually very similar in taste to sweetbreads.

          Good to know. I've had sweet breads but they are usually in some sort of sauce. Will be in Seville for 1.5 days. I'll look then or if the wife has to make a stop at a bathroom in a tapas or pintxo bar.

            You won't find it in most tapas bar in Seville. You have to go to restaurants that specialize in bull meat, etc. Most are around the Plaza de Toros where the famous bull ring is located. And there is no 'pintxos' bar in Seville.
