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…

Vaca

Vaca 695 Town Center Drive Costa Mesa, CA 92626 Yelp My first experience at Chef Amar Santana’s Broadway Bar was a bit underwhelming.  While things were good, I was expecting more pop considering Chef Santana made it all the way to the finale of this past season of Top Chef.  Going into Vaca, I still…
