Seven continents, seven seas, seven billion people and seven thousand good eats …

La Tieta, a very local pub

Biker on a break with a bottle of beer and crisps

We wound up here looking for Quimet y Quimet which was closed in spite of the promise of being open. That is perhaps the one and only irritating thing about Barcelona, the websites of businesses and reality are hardly ever in sync including train time tables. At least for restaurants, it is worthwhile to call and check, something we learnt to do after a few mishaps.

We would never know how good QyQ is but we were awfully glad that we ended up at La Tieta. This is a modern bodega as opposed to a traditional one like Quimet (not to be confused with QyQ). We don’t know any Spanish or Catalan and the proprietress didn’t know any English but we managed an order of beer, a tin of razor clams, Galician ham with potatoes, and foie gras over breadcrumbs marinated in sausage juices.

Foie Gras is banned in California so the choice to get that was trivial. And which tourist wouldn’t order ham in Spain! And the reason to order tinned sea food was a recent review of Bourdain’s Spain trip where he discusses potential goodness of tinned food. All delicious.
