cerveceria catalana, the start of our tapas diet

we eased into our first of many tapas dinners at cerveceria catalana in barcelona. nadius had a great meal here the last time they were in in town so we placed our trust in them. we got there after 730pm and while most restaurants in town were just starting to bring people in, this place was packed. lineup out the door with a 20 minute wait. so we placed our names on the wait list, come back in 25 minutes and although we missed our names being called, the hostess gave us the next table without any hestitation.

we started with a half pitcher of sangria and had a hard time picking items from the long menu. it’s been some time since our dinner there so all i can recall from what we ordered, along with a half order of calamari, was:

vitamin s
fried artichokes – like chips, very different from every other time i’ve eaten artichokes which is a heavier flavour


beef tenderloin on foie gras on toast – to die for. could’ve had 20 more of these

baked camembert coated with almonds topped with raspberry jelly – same as above
and i had to order a sandwich to soak up some of that sangria

our total came to 40euro. very reasonable for the quality of food. the service was nothing short of fantastic especially considering that they had people pouring out their doors. the atmosphere is great, as is the food and we would have returned if we were in barcelona any longer than we were
