A night out, taqueria air + a magic fountain

DSC_0071 In secondary school when learning a new language, we got to choose a name for ourselves.  In Spanish class mine was Isabella and in French class- Jacqueline. (Not quite sure what those particular name choices say about my 14 year old self, but hey!) Looking back now, it was a fun way to connect quickly and personally with a new language and culture.

Our first night in Barcelona did just the same.  A night out in  El Niño Viejo , a casual but intensely phenomenal Mexican meal (think Albert Adrià and Paco Méndez creations) where we blindly went for Chef's selections.  What came was course after course of combinations and flavour profiles of food that left us both in serious lust for the cuisine.  Fresh cut mango in chamoy sauce with a citrus lift, sea urchin aguachile with lime and avocado purée, jalapeño oysters, octopus ceviche, pork belly carnitas, enchiladas with green sauce and it continued until gratitude was beyond words.

A few hours that night was all it took to connect to Barcelona.  No names necessary.

  1. Such gorgeous images! This alone would make me want to go to Barcelona, I've never even been to Spain, that will hopefully change soon! Looks like you had an amazing time!
