Friday's pressing question: Do you like your tortilla RUNNY, or FIRM?

Let us know in the comments 👇⁠

Throughout Spain, you can find a tortilla (or, Spanish omelette), on virtually every menu. However, they are not always prepared the same way. Some people prefer cooking their eggs longer to provide the tortilla with a firmer consistency, whereas others might lightly cook their egg mixture to obtain a runny result. ⁠

Us? We eat them ALL. This specific tortilla was found in Santander, Spain 💥
