  • OK, I’ll admit it. I’m a complete pushover when it comes to pingüinos, at least pottery ones. When we are at a restaurant that has them, if I can’t face the vino de la casa (a rare occurrence), I will ask if the bottle we order can be served in a pingüino. Just because they are so irresistible.


    Today we ate in a wonderful little local place that had not only a shelf full of pingüinos, but a raft of different colored ones, allowing us to choose el pingüino amarillo! Heaven.


    Every year, we notice that fewer restaurants bother with them. If you know of restaurants that maintain a waddle of pingüinos, please bring them to our attention ?

  • I’m going there tomorrow! Thanks, serafina ! I’ve seen the metallic gold ones only as a window display at various locations of The Winery, though they don’t sell them. Our own pingüinos are the homely sort: I’d be over the moon if I could score a golden one!
