On June 19th, 1994, Angel Miranda opened his restaurant, Lola's, in a beautiful
Mid City location. Since then, Lola's has been proudly serving the people of New
Orleans a taste of true Spanish cuisine. People often confuse Spanish food with Latin American food, but beyond a shared language the two regions do not have much in common in their cuisine. With so much of Spain surrounded by water, the majority of the ountry is considered to have a Mediterranean diet. Fish and seafood are dietary staples, but wild game and pork is popular as well.
