I was so excited to have been able to experience and eat at Tapas 24. I have heard only good things about this restaurant and in fact it was the only restaurant that I waited in line for in a really long time. We waited for a good 30-45 minutes before getting a table. As they say all good things for those who wait, as we got a really good table and had one of the finest meals in Barcelona. The restaurant is located in a basement of a building and has a relaxed atmosphere but really buzzing atmosphere.
The minute we sat down we all knew what we wanted to order. After researching and getting several recommendations I knew that I wanted to really try the McFoie burger which reminded me of a more sophisticated flying saucer sandwich. I loved it! I specially love the rich sauce on the side which was part mayonnaise/aioli. We then had an assortment of little plates like a salad (Which I was desperately in need of! I think the Spanish are not too keen on their vegetables? LOL) It was a small arugula salad on top a very crisp bread served with some lovely shaved cheese. The baby squid was fried to absolute perfection and was just heavenly. We then tried this death defying dish of french fries with chorizo and fried eggs! It was like food that my 10 year old self would gorge on! It was rich, decadent and beautiful. The type of food that you would and could only indulge in when on a holiday. Finally we had The black Paella which was a tad salty but was delicious none the less as the saltiness died down after several sips of Cava! Finally we had dessert and we shared this dense chocolate fudge with bits of gorgeous salt on top of it. I was enthralled, entranced and in food nirvana!
I loved Tapas 24! It’s the kind of place that I would go weekly to if it was in Manila. It’s the kind of place where memories are built and stories are shared over wonderful food. Really pleased that I was able to try it. Click here for more information http://www.carlesabellan.
