Spain Local Customs: 295 reviews and 268 photos


Butifarra is a 'embutido' from Catalunya, it can be white or black. In the photo you can see the white type along side morcilla (black pudding) and Chorizo (Spanish spicy sausage).

Embutidos are basically sausage type foods made of minced or chopped meats and herbs and spices and are often cured.

Butifarra is basically a kind of pork meatloaf that comes in more of a sausage from.

The black butifarra gets it's colour from blood (just like morcilla/black pudding) and is made from fatty and lean meats whereas the white one is usually made from just lean meat.

it is very tasty if you are a meat eater who wants to try some great local dishes!
