One of the most wonderful things in the world is a plate of delicious, freshly prepared food. While traveling in Spain, I was able to enjoy many of their local specialties including a variety of tapas, and paella. I was so distracted by the ‘yum’ factor that I forgot to take note of many of the places and names of the items. I will do my best to label the pictures below. These are taken at restaurants in Barcelona.
A restaurant on Las Ramblas that we came across when starving. It had a great deal on tapas. I wouldn't say it was the best place.

Sangria that 3 of us shared
Delicious Mexican Hot Chocolate..literally drinking hot melted chocolate
Chocolate Gelato. This was so dark, rich, and creamy!
Delicious Fresh Squeezed Tropical Fruit Juices and Smoothies. You could buy one ready made or they will make one custom for you! So healthy and delicious.

A local took us to this hole in the wall Catalan Restaurant. It was dirt cheap, but the patatas bravas (the fried potatoes with sauce) had the most delicious garlic sauce on them. Alioli! YUM

These are just a few of the items we found in Spain on our culinary adventures. I loved traveling through and exploring Barcelona and its many sights, but I still think my favorite part was all of the delicious food! I especially loved the hot chocolate! Yum! If you find yourself in Barcelona I am sure you will agree the culinary discoveries are endless! Eat up!
