First meal in Barcelona was at Quimet & Quimet, established in 1904. With all the media exposure, I was reluctant, fearing a parody of a genuine tapas bar.
My fears proved unfounded, we totally enjoyed our first Catalonian tapas. The barman, a fifth generation family member, was gracious and took good care of us noobs.
Vermouth de la Casa (1st of 5, each) with Pan Tomate to start.
Then the hits kept on coming.
We were already back out on the sidewalk when the barman called us back for a last taste treat, a spoonful each of some kind of very alcoholic tasting custard/honey out of a tin. Nice finishing touch to an enjoyable nosh.
