Farga. Forego.

is a bit of a Barcelona institution. It is probably best known for it's handmade pastries and for afternoon tea. It has a number of branches including catering and a deli, but would prove to be the worst meal of the week. We had stopped on a whim as I had heard it was good. I should have realised that this particular one being located on a busy street and with a terrace and menu in English would be a bit of a tourist trap. The food looked better than it tasted.

meant to be baby octopus-over cooked and way too chewy.

olives too vinegary, jamon too dry and croquettes that were meant to have truffle in them but had nothing of the sort.

Oh well, can't win 'em all.
