Barcelona: the last day: Tapac 24. Finally!



Since it was the last day we had to go to Pinotxo for brunch. 2 plates of chickpeas, some aubergine, anchovy and peppers and some padron later we headed off through the Gothic quarter to do some shopping.

One of my favourite places to stop off, sit, people watch, read and drink caipirhinas is a place called Antiquari on the Placa del Rei. They do a mean cortado and if you are lucky a very tasty bocadillo with jamon. We then headed to the Born area stopping of at Taller de Tapas for some tapas. Given this is a chain we thought it was actually not that bad.
We then sat and celebrated Choiti and Rachel's purchases with a bottle of white Rioja and some jamon La Vinya del Senyor.

We had to get to the airport for 7pm so we thought we better have one last meal and so we finally made it to Tapac 24.
I love this place. I wish we had found it on Friday night.



We had the patatas bravas, just and excuse to eat very good chips with aioli and spicy sauce,



The Mcfoie burgers R and C loved these but I could only manage a bit as they are so rich



However the Bikini 24 loved loved loved this. Cheese, jamon and truffle in a toasted sandwich. Yummy! So much so I took one back to the hotel for HI. Talk about that for home delivery!



The entrana con chimichurri was also excellent.



R and C shared some calamari which was declared excellent and we shared some pan am tomate.


I would go back here like a shot if only to have the bikini. The next time we are in Barcelona this is going to be my first stop off as I want to work my way through the rather cool menu which comes as a paper bag, in which your cutlery is provided.



A winner, and a fitting last meal for a spectacular weekend.
