Gulping at El Glop

Just now, two seconds before writing, I learn that El Glop means the drink or the sip in Catalan.

The Taverna El Glop is also one of my favourite restaurants in Barcelona. It’s actually a small chain of restaurants. I’ve always found the food excellent in all the ones I’ve been to, very lovely homemade quality food and amazing grilled meats.

Here’s a peak at our last dinner there (served with some red wine).

This pork secret was succulent.

So was the beef carrillada.

Some chimichurri sauce is always welcome with grilled meat.

Some pan tomaquet is always welcome in any restaurant in Barcelona.

To end, instead of a dessert we went for a café carajillo. Here it was a coffee with a shot of brandy.

Thank you for visiting!

      Its just bread with some tomato brushed onto it. And a touch of salt and olive oil. Its very Catalan and often served here instead of plain bread… oh and I miss it when I go to other parts of Spain!

    The meal looks delicious. I like the pan tomaquet. I make my own artisan bread and I don’t know why I haven’t done this. Of course, the tomatoes here in the Sates don’t even compare to the tomatoes in Spain! Unless they come from someone’s garden. I’ll have to beg some tomatoes from my garden-growing friends!

      Wow you make your own bread? Thats something I have yet to do and I really admire people that do that. Why you could grow your own tomatoes too 😉

    Ohhh this looks lovely, both the fabulously-named restaurant, and the food! Love chimichurri sauce – it really brings food to life. Your blog has been transporting me to Barcelona this morning. I was there years ago with my husband. Such a gorgeous city.
