New Day, New Tapas

It’s a good day when I find a new place to add to my list of great tapas bars!

Armed with a new guide book and a  recommendation from a friend,  I headed off to a relatively new tapas bar, that opened towards the end of 2013:  Bodega 1900 is one of Albert Adria’s recent creations.

Housed in a building dating back to 1900, the feel inside is that of an old-fashioned bodega.  The menu contains delicious staples such as Iberico ham, tinned sardines, croquetes and homemade preserves, alongside a short list of specials, which include some more modern takes on traditional ingredients, such as deep-fried aubergine with honey and balsamic.

Service was excellent and the food exquisite – this place immediately took a place on my top 10 tapas list for Barcelona.

Bodega 1900, C/ Tamarit nº 91, 08015 Barcelona

If you fancy something more formal, another Adriá restaurant, the famous Tickets, is just across the road.  And for a snippet of crazy architecture, the House of Snails is right next door.
