NYC chowhounders here will be going to barcelona for the first time next thursday and i am very excited! my whole itinerary, as usual, is centered around food, but i'm starting to second guess my decisions... if anyone has better suggestions / recommendations please chime in and let me know! any help from fellow chowhounds is much appreciated...
Thursday (arriving in early evening): dinner at Senyor Paralleda
Midnight snack in Eixample at Cerveceria Catalana
Friday: while walking along the Ramblas, snack of flauta d’ibéric d.o. jabugo at Cafe Viena
Stop by Boqueria market, maybe another snack at Bar Pinotxo :)
go wait on line for a late lunch at Cal Pep. << how bad is this line at lunch on a weekday? should we be concerned? what time should we go?
Bubo for a dessert-ish snack
dinner at Passidis del Pep
now this is where it's a bit open and gets tricky:
Saturday: we have a lunch res at botafumeiro, but the more i read posts about it, i feel like it's not really worth the money / trip etc. is the tasting menu at cinc sentits too much food for lunch? it is near all the stuff we're doing that day (pedrera, casa battlo, etc). or does anyone recommend comerc 24 over this?
later: snacks at el xampanyet after meseu picasso.
dinner again is open. i have inopia and origen 99% written down. is origen a good place to eat or is it more of a foodstuff shop? can majo? taller de tapas? perhaps we should make a res at a more upscale place? maybe do the tasting at comerc?
i think we definitely want to try senyor paralleda, cal pep and passidis del pep. any plate recs definitely appreciated! saturday is a bit of a mess! please help fellow foodies!
