    • 2015 September 18, David Díaz, “Deportes Nacionales: comer tortilla de patata en un bar”, in El País[1]:
      Hemos pasado de la tortilla paisana, la jardinera o la campera al sambódromo más absoluto, con tortillas de patata que incluyen piña, anchoas, pepinillos, aceitunas negras y, aunque no lo creáis, hasta jengibre y aguacate.
      We have gone from the rustic, the vegetable and country-style omelets to the most absolute diversity, with Spanish omelets including pineapple, anchovies, pickles, black olives and, believe it or not, even ginger or avocado.
