La Boqueria in Barcelona is one of the most famous market in Europe.
Here in New York, a restaurant is named after the market, Boqueria NYC
The restaurant has two locations: One in Flatiron and one in Soho.
It's popular and can get crowded and loud.
Ensalada del Momento: Organic mixed greens, Idiazabal cheese, herbed croutons, citrus vinaigrette
Pimientos de Padron: Blistered shishito peppers, coarse sea salt
(Love it! Most of the peppers are very very mild. Occasionally, you will get one that is hotter than others.)
Datiles con Beicon: Dates stuffed with almonds and valdeon, wrapped in bacon
(Such unexpected combination, and so perfect!)
Cojonudo: Fried quail eggs and chorizo on toast
(The dish was such an eye candy! We did not want to eat it because the quail eggs were sooo cute!)
Chorizo Cantimpalo: Mildly spicy pork sausage cured in Pimenton
Sobao Pasiego: butter rum sponge cake, seasonal fruit, cream fraiche ice-cream.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE Pintxos & Tapas. It's the best way to eat in my opinion.
(Of course it's chic's talk. Most guys I know don't like the idea of sharing small portion of various dishes.)
Boqueria definitely have some interesting dishes that I don't see in other Spanish tapas' places.
It's a perfect choice for dates or girlfriends getting togehter.
PS/It's been a while since my last entry. I was consumed by relocation the past couple of months.
Finally, I am feeling a lot more settled, and will get back to the rhythm of writing my blogs.
