Bar Cañete

Bar Cañete Carrer de la Unió 17 08001 Barcelona Spain TripAdvisor The night we wanted to come here for dinner, the restaurant had an unfortunate black out.  A crowd of bewildered guests and stressed out looking employees surrounded the entrance.  It was unclear if the electrical situation was going to be fixed anytime soon, so…

Quimet Y Quimet

Quimet y Quimet Carrer del Poeta Cabanyes 25 08004 Barcelona Spain TripAdvisor I like to believe that Anthony Bourdain is a reliable source when it comes to food.  I mean, he has built his career around being “authentic” and just “telling it like it is.”  But I have always wondered what happens if he eats…

Churreria Laietana

Churreria Laietana Via Laietana 46 08003 Barcelona Spain TripAdvisor Aren’t churros a Mexican thing?  That was what we pondered as we sat down to enjoy the churros at Churreria Laietana.  Living in California, we are no strangers to this delicious foot-long deep fried dough, traditionally covered in cinnamon sugar, and sometimes served with a side of…

Cerveceria Catalana

Cerveceria Catalana Carrer de Mallorca 236 08008 Barcelona Spain TripAdvisor You’ll be hard pressed to find many good restaurants in Barcelona that are open before 12pm for lunch.  Cerveceria Catalana is unusual in that it opens up at 8am!  Yes, you heard that right.  If you want to have lunch for breakfast, you can easily…

Espai Kru

Espai Kru Carrer de Lleida 7 08004 Barcelona Spain TripAdvisor Barcelona had no shortage of fine dining options. It was rather difficult narrowing down the selection to just a few. I settled on Espai Kru and Disfrutar. The latter because of its connection to El Buli (more on that later) and the former because of…

Bar Pinotxo

Bar Pinotxo Mercat de la Boqueria Carrer la Rambla 89 08002 Barcelona Spain TripAdvisor Bar Pinotxo was another popular and highly recommended spot at La Boqueria. Again the wait times were reported to be lengthy but we got a table after about 15 minutes. Unlike the other bar eateries at La Boqueria, Bar Pinotxo actually…

Gelaaati di Marco

Gelaaati di Marco Carrer de la Llibreteria 7 08002 Barcelona, Spain There’s a lot of delicious food to be found in the Gothic district. The key word is FIND. The multitude of snaking alleyways that make up the Gothic quarter can make it challenging. If you’re not really paying attention you could easily get lost…

El Quim de La Boqueria

El Quim de La Boqueria Mercado de La Boqueria La Rambla 91 08002 Barcelona, Spain Doing the food research for Barcelona was a daunting task. It is a city with no shortage of FANTASTIC eats. One week seemed like a sufficient amount of time to hit up most of the big tourist attractions, but would…

Eataly

Eataly 200 5th Ave New York, NY 10010 Yelp Eataly is everything Italian food.  It’s part restaurant, food court, food hall, market, and specialty store rolled into one giant sprawling behemoth.  NYC is blessed to have not one, but two, locations throughout the city.  I could have easily spent hours here just looking around and…

Eleven Madison Park

Eleven Madison Park 11 Madison Ave New York, NY 10010 Yelp You may remember that in 2013 I went to Eleven Madison Park.  It was then and there that I had THE BEST F*CKING meal of a lifetime.  There have been many meals since then that certainly deserve to be up there with Eleven Madison…

The Lobster Place / C&P Galley

The Lobster Place Chelsea Market 75 9th St. New York, NY 10011 Yelp   Chelsea Market is one awesome food hall and I highly recommend the place for any foodie.  I loved wandering the place, checking out menus, seeing what was good to eat, and perusing the various markets.  The Lobster Place is both a…

Los Tacos No. 1

Los Tacos No. 1 Chelsea Market 75 9th St. New York, NY 10011 Yelp Coming from Southern California, I am not so inclined to eat Mexican food unless I am visiting a place that has more Mexican people than my home state.  However, Los Tacos No. 1 came highly recommended to me by another food blogger.  It also…
