Full description
Kick off your exploration of Barcelona by delving into the foodie scene at one of the city's most vibrant areas: the Gothic Quarter. After gathering with your guide, you'll make your way to your first stop, which is dedicated to opening up your palate to new flavors. Enter a favorite of Barcelona nightlife, Bodega Maestrazgo, where you’ll immediately see shelves stocked floor-to-ceiling with Spanish vermouth, cava (Spanish champagne), and other wines. With a side of bread, manchego cheese, and olives, you will be able to sample cava first hand. Marked by its Denominación de Origen status from Catalonia, this sparkling wine’s name tells a tale of its preservation methods. Cava translates to “caves”, where this wine was stored to keep cool in the early days. You'll finish off your first stop with some of the best jamón in the world, Jamón Iberico de Bellota. Next up you will receive an introduction to tapas. Tapas are small portions of classic Spanish dishes which are intended to be shared among a group of people. You'll start off your tapas experience with a glass of delicious Spanish wine, after which you can prepare yourself for some incredible local flavors. Throughout your tapas experience you will enjoy servings of fried anchovies, Spanish sausage, and a colorful tomato salad. Finally, it will be time to sit back and enjoy a comfortable local dinner. For the final stop of your tour your guide will lead you to a typical bodega, a Barcelona restaurant with a fascinating history. Enjoy one of Spain’s signature tapas dishes, patatas bravas (oven roasted potatoes with a special sauce), as well as croquetas (a fried potato delight). As if these potato dishes weren’t enough to make you swoon, you’ll then move on to your main course, a scrumptious pork-cheek stew. Following this fiesta of flavors you'll conclude your Spanish dinner with a sweet traditional dessert, crema catalana. If you’re a fan of crèm brûlée, you're bound to enjoy this fresh local take on this popular French dessert.
