Snack attack at La Boqueria

Delicious cortado, espresso and cava
LOCATION: Random meat stall and a visit to Bar Pinotxo at La Boqueria market, Barcelona, Spain
CATEGORY: Snack, tapas, Catalan
DRINK: Torello cava, coffee
WE THINK: This market is reason in itself to move to Barcelona! We wanted to eat at every stall in the market but despite our spectacular appetite and oversized stomachs, this was clearly not possible. We therefore settled on a good-looking box of Salamanca ham (yummy) followed by a seat at Bar Pinotxo, recommended by our local food friend. The food was delicious, in particular the baby squid and white beans, and the cortado one of the best we have ever had. Lots of tourists and high stress levels? Of course. Worth a visit? You bet.
