No culinary dilemma has been more heatedly debated, not even whether a morcilla de burgos can be considered superior to a morcilla de leon, or which region boasts the best jamón.

A poll of our readers on Facebook revealed 83 percent would choose a tortilla de patatas con cebolla.

While on Twitter, a poll revealed a more balanced split but still most definitely for onions.


The only question now is, runny or firm?
