Ugh, these fried squid rings were really limp and greasy. They were kinda gross! #fail

Spicy chorizo – Mikkeller Bar

Spicy chorizo - Mikkeller Bar
Artisanal spicy chorizo, served with pan on tomate, coarse mustard. €4.50
Mikkeller Bar, Barcelona SPAIN

I loved the texture of this chorizo! I could have sworn they were flash fried, but I’m now sure. Perhaps they were just really dry cured. Regardless, they were delicious and their pan con tomate were some of the best of the trip.

Nachos – Mikkeller Bar

Nachos - Mikkeller Bar
Jalapenos, cheese and salsa. €5.15
Mikkeller Bar, Barcelona SPAIN

We were totally surprised by these nachos. I’ve never ordered nachos in Europe before because it seems silly to do so since there’s plenty of other food to try, but we were looking for something hot and comforting to eat with our beer. I’m glad we ordered it because these nachos were delicious! I especially loved the tapenade that they had on top. It was unexpected, and it provided a nice European flare to what we’re accustomed to in the US.

Slow roasted pork belly with crackling – Bedford Tavern

Slow roasted pork belly with crackling - Bedford Tavern
Served with roasted vegetables, Yorkshire pudding, stuffing, roasted potatoes and gravy. £9.95
Bedford Tavern, Brighton ENGLAND

OMG, this Sunday roast had SO much food! I think I could only get through a quarter of this plate before I was down for the count. The pork was super tender and juicy and all the other components were cooked beautifully! The service (bartender and owner) were so great and the Tavern had a very comfortable feel to it. I would definitely recommend this place for a relaxing Sunday roast in a great atmosphere.

Beef corn dogs – Urban Putt

Beef corn dogs - Urban Putt
$9
Urban Putt, San Francisco CA

Ugh, what a disappointment! These were REALLY greasy and off tasting. They pretty much tasted like burnt oil or perhaps their frying oil was super old or something. I didn’t like these at all. And even the mustard dip was overly bitter. #foodfail
