Basque tapas – Taktika Berri

Basque tapas - Taktika Berri
Serrano ham, bacalao with pepper, and seafood salad. Each €1.50
Taktika Berri, Barcelona SPAIN

This restaurant was SO much fun! It was like a dim sum restaurant, but with tapas! We got in early when they opened for lunch so we were able to snag a seat in the middle of the bar. This made for perfect positioning for snatching tapas as they came out from the kitchen. The cold tapas were already out on the bar when we sat down, and the hot tapas started coming out shortly after. This trio of cold tapas were pretty tasty! I especially loved the serrano ham. The cured fish was good too, and while the seafood salad tasted good, I thought there was too much mayonnaise for me to fully enjoy.

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.
