Nothing says “I love you” like a really good meal in my opinion. My first trip to Spain was everything I could have imagined. We were lucky enough to stay with some good friends who lived a little northeast in Badalona, Spain on the coast.
Staying a little away from the heart of it all was a blessing, giving us time to take the subway in and get excited for the day – as well as unwind a bit on the way home.
While museums and architecture and culture always steal my heart in a new city, this food of Spain alone will keep me coming back for more. Here is a quick look at some of the places we ate at until our hearts (and stomachs!) were quite full.
“La Boqueria is an open market and a name of reference in Barcelona. We are the beating heart of the city, and our customers include local customers, people from Barcelona in general and people from other parts of Catalonia.What’s more, as we are right in the city centre, on the Rambla, many tourists who visit Barcelona have the opportunity to visit us and sample the food on offer in our bars and restaurants, prepared with products fresh from the market.”
“Patrick, an Italian from Genoa, and Clare, an Englishman from Cornwall, decided to learn the secrets of these Genoese aromas and share them with the rest of the world. That is how, with the lesson well learned, they traveled to Barcelona with the idea of creating their first focacceria.”
“Cal Pep presents a new way of cooking, different from the typical format of appetizers, entreés, then dessert. We have a fresh and bright culinary view, an understanding cooking, with easy and quick preparations. Our restaurant concept grew from the idea of sharing the dishes, their tastes and flavors, in a tapas-style.”
Más Q Menos
“Ham and Tapas” to celebrate life surrounded by friends in stylish environment. Good food and drink thanks to a delicious and varied menu that is prepared, in the purest show cooking style, always in view of the client. A traditional menu that merges the best products, to offer gourmet experiences with personality and prestige.”
And while there were many more quick bites and walking around the city grabbing a few slices of jamon when we had the cravings, the view wasn’t too bad either.
