Barcelona 2015- Food (Part 1 of 2)

Our first 'meal' in Barcelona...

...fried sardines and beer! 

(Food of the gods!!)


                                       After hours and hours of walking one day...

                                  ...my friends and I were hungry and exhausted.



                               This 'chain restaurant' meal of fried tofu, dumplings...

                                                        ...soup and seaweed...



                                                    ...fit the bill quite nicely!




                                       We had a delicious and memorable meal...

                                               ...at the Restaurant 7 Portes...



                                    ...starting with lovely Catalan tomato bread...

                              ...baby broad beans with fresh mint and vinaigrette...



                                               ...and light-as-air spinach puffs!



                                            Our 'mains' included seafood paella...



                                  ...and melt-in-your-mouth vegetable cannellonis...

                                  ...filled with aubergine, spinach and artichokes.


                               We ended the meal with three scrumptious desserts: 

                Fresh cheese with walnuts, quince jelly and a drizzle of honey...



                                            ...profiteroles with chocolate sauce...



                                       ...and crème caramel with whipped cream.




                                          Next time: we head to our local market!
