Barcelona Trip Report - Day 1

Barcelona Trip Report - Day 1
Taller de Tapas - Ramblas de Catalunya 49-51

My first day in Barcelona and following a trip to La Sagrada Familia I head to an outpost of the heralded tapas joint Taller de Tapas on the Ramblas de Catalunya for a late lunch. I start with an order of pa amb tomaquet (tomato bread) and pernil serra (serrano ham). The ham is a good accompaniment to the tomato pulp, olive oil and sea salt covered grilled bread. I follow up with bunyols bacalla (salt cod fritters) and sepietes planxa (squid). The fritters were perfectly fried and quite delicious. I washed everything down with a few San Miguel beers. All in all a perfect start to my culinary excursion.
