We're going to Barcelona and Valencia...this is our first time in Europe, and to experience Tapas.
we will be 6 people...with 1 child (7yr old)....
I'm not quite sure how this tapas bar hoping works.....realistically, how many bars do you normally hit in 1 night? i guess if you eat a lot, you might be done with 1 bar...and call it a night .... But do you normally eat like 3-4 plates each and move to the next one?
sorry for my ignorance, but i just want to clear this scenario in my head and make a realistic plan.
Im looking at google maps, and trying to see the locations of the tapas bars im trying to hit, (tapac24, cal pep, taller de tapas, Paco meralgo, 41 degrees, tickets, euskal etxea, el vaso de oro,...) and they are relatively far apart. (unless i am misjudging the distance) ...which makes me wonder how is this gonna work....and it gives me an impression that you would normally just pick a place, and that would be it for the night. (which would suck coz' i would like to try as many places as possible)
I still have to make reservations on some of them, so i wanted to make sure if we are hitting more than 1 per night, i should at least choose the ones that are close to eachother and not across town. Unless all this requires multiple cab rides...
So, can someone educate me on this.... what would be a good line up in 1 night? Is the El born area and Gotic area good places to start despite being known as touristy. (which is what we are...)... are there other good places down there that you can recommend that is not on my list?
We are staying in the Eixample area...i read that there are good tapas bars here too....can anyone recommend a good line up there too? so we can just walk from one place to another?
We are spending our NYE dinner at HISOP also, and im trying to get a reservation for Cinc Sentits and Neichel. Im very excited about this whole trip. :)
Thanks in advance.
