Tapas 24

For our first night in Barcelona, we chose to dine at Tapas 24, a popular tapas bar that consistently popped up during my trip research.

When we arrived, there was a long line, but it actually moved rather fast. The staff were obviously pros at being efficient and getting people seated as quickly as possible The interior features a large bar at the center and smaller tables on the sides. After about 20 minutes, we were seated at one of the outside tables.

The menu was conveniently printed on a sleeve that held our utensils.

Lightly fried potatoes, covered with a garlic aioli and spicy sauce. They didn’t look like much but they were very enjoyable.

Chicken filled croquettes. These were actually a little dry. We should have had the ham ones.

Thin toasted triangle sandwiches filled with slices of Iberian ham, mozzarella cheese and flecks of black truffle. This reminded me of a grilled cheese sandwich. These were quite rich.

McFoie Burger

A foie gras and beef patty burger served with foie gras ganache. The highlight was definitely the ganache, which had a concentrated savory foie gras flavor. I’m not ashamed to admit, I made sure we ate every last bit of the sauce.

Cap I Pota

A stew of tender beef trip, chick peas and chorizo. It was hearty and earthy.

Overall, this was a solid way to start our trip. Later on in our trip, we did visit several other tapas bars that were less touristy and we actually found them to be even better than this dinner. But it was a good meal nonetheless. Afterwards, we took a late night stroll to digest and watched this ever-changing fountain.
