Delicious gelato by the Roca brothers: Rocambolesc Barcelona (12. January 2020)

I was recommended the Rocambolesc by a friend as a place which produces ice cream created by the Roca brothers (the guys running ‘El Celler de San Roca’ which was one the best restaurant in the world) so I decided to give it a try given I’ll be trying the Roca brothers in about 5 […]

Great view onto the harbor and good food: Restaurant 1881 by Sagardi (11. January 2020)

Great view onto the harbor and good food: Restaurant 1881 by Sagardi (11. January 2020)

The 1881 by Sagardi is nice due to the setting of the restaurant which is located on the top floor of the Museu d’Història de Catalunya and provides – especially during the day – a nice view onto Barcelona. I decided to try a couple of different things and went for “1/2 Iberian Ham Croquettes” […]

Just lost its Michelin star – and rightly so: Restaurant Barra de Tapas by Carles Abellan @ W Barcelona (11. January 2020)

Just lost its Michelin star – and rightly so: Restaurant Barra de Tapas by Carles Abellan @ W Barcelona (11. January 2020)

When I checked in at the W, I was told that they have a Michelin star restaurant on premise. Turns out, they had one and had just lost their star in 2020. And I think that shows. I went for the “white and cured anchovy marriage” (EUR 6.40) which was enjoyable because I really like […]

Decent breakfast selection right at the beach: Salt Restaurant & Beach Club @ W Barcelona (11. January 2020)

What I always like when staying in a W is the breakfast selection. I was told that the breakfast is served in two locations, the Salt as well as the Barra de Tapas and that the offer is the same. Only the next day, I found out that it isn’t entirely. The selection in the […]

An interesting back alley experience: Restaurant Passadis del Pep (10. January 2020)

I was recommended the Passadis del Pep, so I decided to give it a try. And frankly, overall, I liked the experience. it is a bit tricky to find the restaurant overall but once you’re in, they explain to you how the concept work, which is basically, they bring you a variety of different plates […]

Absolutely lovely local experience: Restaurant El Rinconcillo (3. January 2020)

Absolutely lovely local experience: Restaurant El Rinconcillo (3. January 2020)

Somehow, the El Rinconcillo is an institution in Sevilla – wherever you check for restaurant recommendations, the El Rinconcillo pops up. Now, if you go before 7pm, you’ll just get food at the counter and will have to ‘stand around’ to eat your food and drink your glass of wine. Therefore, I would recommend you […]

Good for breakfast before you queue at Real Alcazar: Restaurant Taberna El Papelón (3. January 2020)

Good for breakfast before you queue at Real Alcazar: Restaurant Taberna El Papelón (3. January 2020)

When you are looking for a place which serves a small snack in the morning, the Taberna El Papelón is rather perfect as it basically a little café where they have understood the concept of swift service (which is not absolutely normal in Spain). I asked for a tea and a “Bocadillo de Jamón Ibérico […]
