Tapas in Barcelona – a photo review

Hi Frugalistas!

Spain is synonymous with tapas, and in Barcelona recently it was pretty much all I ate.  I love the idea of little plates of lots of different flavors and taste experiences – it’s a great way to try many different things without going broke or ending up the size of a whale!

I know, churros and chocolate isn't a tapas, but what else would you finish with in Spain?

Tapas are just the way I like to eat when I’m traveling – local ingredients, made into tasty local dishes, served in a traditional style, and at a great price!

    Hungry just looking…..lol Nice work
    I use barcelona-restaurants dot com when we are eating out. Its actually great for finding nice little tapas bars and for some reason there always seems to be big offers, 30% off etc if I book that way yet I can’t get a discount if I arrive on spec.. so can recommend that.
    I’m still addicted to a simply good Tortilla after all these years 🙂

    Yum all the way down that scroll of images! Churros and chocolate sounds like a dream come true.

      I’d never had it before and went to a little old fashioned place down a laneway recommended by my guidebook. The chocolate was incredibly thick and not at all sweet. The churros were crisp on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside – and still warm from the fryer. A great combination!

        I’m jealous. Makes me want to pack my bag right now and hunt down that little old place. More than anything, I want to hug them for even thinking of putting those two delightful desserts together.

      It was – really light and fresh – cut through the fatty chorizos!

        Haha, I can only comment on the salad, as I’ve been a veggie since the age of 17! 😉

        Happy holidays!
