Amen. I found the food on our honeymoon to be dull, dull, dull, with the exception of a couple of meals in Marbella. Made the Cuban stuff I grew up with seem exciting, which is saying something. Paris was, unsurprisingly, much better.

I disagree. Many spices and sharp flavors at the time can be exciting but not necessarily as interesting. The madre patria cuisine can be described as "let the main ingredients tickle your brain". That is why quality is so important.

Yet, I am biased (coming from Argentina where beef is served almost daily with very light seasoning or none at all). You can't beat a perfectly grilled steak, add too much seasoning and you miss the whole point.
