What: Artichoke Hearts with Iberian Ham Shavings
Where: Casa Alfoso
Tender artichoke hearts served with quail eggs, potatoes and Iberian ham shavings, this is a delicacy, and the elegant, soft flavor of the artichokes combined with the stronger of the ham makes this an exquisite combination that you cannot miss. Eating out in Barcelona is a wonderful experience.
What: Spider Tuna Tartar with Sea Urchin and Yuzu
Where: Tickets: La Vida Tapa!
With the tuna’s intensity, the briny and fresh flavor of the Uni (sea urchin) and the citrus tang of the yuzu, this dish is an ideal option for hot summer nights. Combined with a crisp tortilla and a glass of wine, you’ll have a night you won’t soon forget.
What: Goat Cheese with Tomato Confit Toast
Where: Restaurant Terra Mar
Toasted, crisp and hot slices of bread accompanied with creamy and fresh goat cheese, topped with a delicious, sweet confit made with tomatoes, onions and herbs. The delightfully tart flavor of the goat cheese, in contrast with the sweetness of the tomato confit, makes this tapa a great choice. Dinner in Barcelona is always a pleasure for the most discerning palates.
What: Potato Chips with Chorizo Omelet
Where: El Xampanyet
A very common tapa, the one served in El Xampanyet is by far one of the best in the city. This version has very thin slices of potato which are first fried to obtain a crispy consistency, and then made into an omelet with chorizo. The combination of textures and the distinctive flavor of the chorizo will have you asking for seconds
What: Bomba de la Barceloneta
Where: Tapas 24
A classic recipe in bars and restaurants, this is one of those things that look like one thing on the outside, but are a completely different matter on the inside. These are balls of minced meat seasoned with hot sauce and herbs, covered with a layer of potato puree, then eggs and breadcrumbs, and finally fried to a crispy golden color, served with mayonnaise and topped with salsa brava. Truly one of the best tapas in Barcelona.0
