The typical dishes from Saragossa are simple and fortifying, exactly like the wines that accompany them. Examples include green beans with pig's ears and 'chorizo' sausage, 'migas a la pastora' (fried breadcrumbs), the delicious 'borraja' (borage) -a vegetable that is little known in the rest of Spain, and not forgetting cardoons with almonds. Main dishes come in the shape of 'bacalao al ajoarriero' (cod dish), 'pollo a la chilindrón' (chicken dish), 'lomo a la zaragozana' (chine), roast veal and 'huevos al salmorejo' (egg dish). There is a wide variety of desserts available ranging from fresh fruit to excellent sweet dishes such as 'el guirlache' (almond brittle), 'mostillo', 'roscones' (ring-shaped cakes) ant sponge cakes.
