We went together with another couple we knew and four other people, maximum group size being eight plus Joe and Jo. After a round of introductions with both our guides and fellow tourists, we set off on a tour of tapas in the old quarter. We started off with a shop specialising in cheese along with some wine. We were all given a sample of three cheeses and a glass of local wine. The cheeses were all sourced in Catalan and they were superb. We then made our way to stop number two, a tiny tapas place, four tables and a bar, where the tapas was superb and we also enjoyed local vermouth. We had baby squids which were wrapped arround rice and cooked, bombeta, stuffed and baked mussels, peppericinos and green peppers fried in olive oil topped with sea salt. This stuff was all local and quite delicious. Next stop, they seated us up in a room overlooking the main bar area. Another nice local place. We had baby potatoes which had been soaked in brine before being boiled, then sliced and topped with romesco. Later some pa amb tomaquet,bread smeared with tomato and olive oil was passed around, all of which well with the vino tinto being served. The last place was another short walk away where we had dessert tapas accompanied by glasses of cava. Both Jo and Joe were knowledgeable about the food and culture as well as being easy conversationalists. It was a fine night. The variety and amount of food was perfect and considering the insights and additional restaurant tips later given, good value. Even my native Spanish speaking friend thought it was an excellent night out.
