Proof that The Hubs takes longer to get ready than I do bahahahahaha.
Requisite Elevator Pic!
I have no idea what this was called but it was AWESOME! It was some kind of fried corn flour and the inside was stuffed with beef short rib, potatoes and rice. The Hubs and I kept fighting each other bite after bite for this haha!
Freshly squeezed mango pineapple juice!! Delish!
The Picasso building itself was a gorgeous! It would be a great place to sit and spend an afternoon unfortunately I don't think I saw any chairs or benches. Oh well.
You weren't allowed to take pictures inside the museum so the building will have to suffice haha.
Museum break with a Manchego sandwich, Tiramisu and my US Weekly of course haha!
Me and Picasso and his bread hands!!
Back to Las Ramblas!
Found this amazeballs department store that I could literally spend all day in it if The Hubs would let me heh.
The Hubs trying on a camo blazer! Wait a minute.. I thought the guy usually waits for the girl while shopping..................
At the top of the giant multi-level department store they had 4 restaurants on the top level and we ate at one ironically called "The Rotunda" hahahaha.. reminiscent of our lunches at Neiman Marcus's Rotunda back in San Francisco hehehe.
|Lobster & Shrimp Paella|
BEST FREAKIN' PAELLA OF MY LIFE!
Hands down. NO JOKE.
I've never had Paella so deliciously before. Ironically right before my paella came the Hubs was saying how he didn't like paella.. to which I responded "I think it's because you've never had good paella before" and he was like "No I think I just don't like it"
And low and behold my paella dish came and he would not stop eating off of my plate -___-
Suffice to say he's now a total Paella convert hahahaha.
The Hubs ordered the fish which was reminiscent of my black cod dish I had the day before. This was delicious too but was sort of over shadowed by my paella haha
It was sooo rich and delicious and it was swimmmmmmmmmmmming in saffron! The lobster was so sweet and delicious too! A lot of times with paella I've had undercooked rice and overcooked seafood because they didn't time the rice and the seafood right.. but that was not the case with this dish everything about it was perfection!
|Fruit & sorbet plate|
Even their fruit plate was delicious hahaha. The fruit was soooooo juicy and sweet and it was sprinkled with chocolate powder and even the accompanying sorbet was delicious it was a light lime & lemon flavor! I couldn't believe the price either the dessert was $5 Euro's!! I mean the plate is ridiculously big and look at how much fruit is on there!
Ice Cream in a cone? How about Jamon in a cone?!! For $5 Euro's you can get a giant cone of pure fatty Jamon goodness!
(And yes The Hubs yelled out "JAM-BON-IT!" ::SAD FACE::)
See the cute little malti-poo at the bottom.. yeah she kept trying to run into the store hahahahaha so cute!
The guy offered us samples. It was melt in your mouth delicious!
We fell upon a rando night time art fest in the middle of a church square! So cool!
Towels masquerading as cakes!
|Empanadas & Cheese Bread|
We headed back to the La Boqueria for a mid evening snack.
The inside of one of the empandas the meat was soo nommy. The Cheese bread which I forgot to photograph tasted like the brazilian cheesebread you get at Fogo De Chau but a BAJILLION TIMES better the inside was STUFFED with like a full block of manchego cheese. When you bit into it you could see like a thick giant layer of cheese it was insane. The Hubs actually went back and ordered the cheese bread a 2nd time because he liked it so much haha.
|Churros and Chocolate|
Can't leave Spain without trying the infamous churros and dipping chocolate! The churros were light and crispy but The Hubs really loved the chocolate he seriously wanted to lick the cup clean.. but we were in public. ahahaha.
Fell upon one of Gaudi's gorgeous church's.
A gorgeous Opera house.
Rando souveneir shop. Total tourist trap but so fun to wander around in them!
We stopped for dinner around 10pm! Loved that everything was opened so late. We didn't really have anything planned but we found this random restaurant and it looked so fun and lively inside we decided to pop in for dinner.
Look at all the Jambon in the window!!
But this was a burger joint and a burger is what I was having! I was really excited because I haven't had a good burger since we moved from San Francisco to Germany. German beef tastes really different from the US beef and it's just something we're not accustomed too so I've sort of given up eating red meat here completely. So when we were in Spain I was looking forward to trying their burgers!
|Potatas Bravas & Croquettes|
Can't leave Barcelona without trying the Potatas Bravas & Croquettes! Both delicious AND filling!! And underneath the croquettes were freshly fried shoestring fries!
|Bacon, Egg & Manchego cheese Burger w/ sundried tomatoes & pearl onions & shoestring fries|
It's a good thing we only ordered one burger because quite honestly we were pretty much full by the time the burger came haha.
BUT... have no fear. I made room. HAHAHAHA
So how was it??
SOOOO (*&(@*#&$(@#*&$#@ GOOD!
OMG... like falls in the top 3 best burgers I've ever had in my entire life good.
It was dreamy.
I don't think I've ever called a food item dreamy before hahahahaha
Hahaha Hubs and I walked out of their clutching our stomachs.
Back to the hotel.
We were so food comatose-d out we had trouble getting into our room PUHAHAH! These newfangled modern things.. I just don't get it.. I think our hotel was way too cool for us HAHAHAHAHAHA.
The Hub thinks he's so "raw"
Whatever that means.
More of our anniversary trip to Barcelona coming soon!
