On the day after Christmas, Dan and I headed to Barcelona for five glorious days. Our flight out was delayed and we had to actually change planes, so we arrived around 2:30 PM as opposed to 12:30. Needless to say we were starving! We arrived at our B & B, The Marina View, and after unpacking we headed out to see the sights. After a short walk to the Ramblas we veered off into the Barri Gotic, or old Town, to see the city and to find some food. We found a little place called Restaurante DonFernando and even though they had pictures of their food, we stopped in to have a few tapas. The servers were very friendly and spoke little English, but the menus had English translations. We ordered Patatas Gravas (5.50 euro) and they were crispy and spicy and very good. My favorite thing were the Chorizitos (5.50). They were little spicy chorizo sausages flavored with paprika and oh so tasty! We also had Alitas De Pollo which were chicken wings in a very good sauce (4.90) and PanCon Tomate, toasted bread rubbed with garlic and tomato. The bread was priced at 1.90 a person so it was 3.80 euros. Dan drank a bottle of Agua Mineral (1.75) and I had an ice cold mug of San Miguel (4.90) or as they called it Jarra De Cerveza. Overall the food was really good and just what we needed to get moving along.
