Get your tapas on in Barcelona
Rick Steves of the Tribune Media Services is of the same opinion, saying in an article for MSNBC that for the true-blue tapas experience, Spain is a total must.
"When I'm there, I can't resist stopping in local bars to munch on these small portions of seafood, salads, meat-filled pastries, deep-fried tasties and on and on," he remarked.
How true - they are so very, very moreish and, if my girlfriend would let me, I would very happily stuff myself until I burst on these delights. My mouth is watering just thinking about it! Mr Steves recommended travellers follow their eyes and ears and stop off for a bite at any "lively" restaurant, as Barcelona has lots of wonderful tascas to tempt people in, particularly in the Gothic Quarter - Barri Gotic. Yum yum yum.
Of course, tapas isn't all that the city has to offer. Local Rupert Thompson recommended in a Guardian article that visitors make sure they spend some time in Gerbard, a neighbourhood bar that gives a taste of the real town.
