Cervecería Catalana – Barcelona, Spain

After lunch at El Quim, we had a siesta and then headed to Park Güell.

Park Güell was designed by Antoni Gaudí and it’s like I’ve entered into a land of fairytales!

a gingerbread house-looking building…

By the time we left the park, it was already 8pm and we were already really hungry. We headed to L’Exiample (only 2 metro stops away!) for dinner at Cervecería Catalana.

We got there around 8:30pm and the place was packed!!! There were no empty seats at the bar and the waiting list for a table in the restaurant was at least half an hour!  We found a seat at the bar and were too hungry to wait for more seats, so we ordered some tapas to start.  Thankfully soon after, we got a table!

potato bravas….. mmm.. I like this more than french fries and ketchup!

pan con tomate…. my least favourite pan con tomate in all of Spain… the bread wasn’t even tomato-y….

deep fried cheese with nuts… a really interesting texture combination! tasty!

deep-fried baby squid… these seem to be the frozen kind.. nothing special..

chicken wrap….

grilled shrimps…. again, it’s the frozen kind..

mini hot dogs….nothing special..

some sandwich that was forgettable…

fried sardines…these sardines were meaty and didn’t have the fishy taste..

Crema catalana… this is the Spanish crème brûlée! yummm!

If I haven’t been to Paco Meralgo /Tapaç 24, then I would say the food’s pretty good here.  But because I had tapas and seafood of a higher quality at those two places, I wasn’t impressed with the quality of the tapas dish at Cervecería Catalana.  Price-wise, this was more economical.. we came out stuffed and only paid 70 euros for 4 people.

FAIM? OUI OUI!!
