Pisco Soldeica

Pisco Soldeica

This is an awful drink to be drank alone, but a basic ingredient for pisco-sour, which is a nice cocktail. This is a quite old bottle. I see in their website that they have a much modern label design now.

Santa Digna Rosé 2009

Santa Digna Rosé 2009

This is one of the best rosé wines that I have tasted. You can still found it below 6 eur per bottle. However, I think that 2009 is not a good year. It is extremely dry and less fruity than great years such as 2007. Unfortunately this is not a long lasting wine, and it must be consumed during the year. Thus, we must wait to see the 2010 quality or to find a good marriage with meals for the 2009.

Vino tinto Valladolid

Vino Tinto Valladolid
C/ Campanas 4

WE went on sunday. I think it is not the best day. The restaurant was empty and they haven't the outstanding "arroz a la zamorana". All the dishes were great but the cod was below my expectations.

Xampu Xampany

Xampú Xampany

This is a good place to eat good quality ham. You can also purchase there to take away. I specially recommend the "cecina" (ham made from caw). They sell it for 25 eur per Kilo and que quality is outstanding. Worth to taste it!

Ideal Cocktail bar

Ideal cocktail bar
C/ Aribau 89, Barcelona

It must be called Ideal smoked bar. Definitely I prefer TIRSA or Milano. In addition it charges more than the others (10 eur for a gin&tonic of tanqueray)

C/ Rosselló 197, Barcelona

This is a very interesting restaurant with chilean food. Although they do not offer a large selection of dishes you are plenty of chance to taste very tasty and special meals.
Prices are, in general, extremely reasonable. Even for the wines. You can drink good chilean wine for a very reasonable price (12,5 eur per bottle)
3 ceviches degustación: I found that this dish was too small, even worse if you consider that its price is 15 eur. Nevertheless, the taste was great!
fried brie:
sopaipilla con pebre:
patata chilena, corazones de alcachofa y reducción de carmenere. The artichoke is outstanding!

chupe de marisco:

pastel de choclo: this was my favourite dish. Extremely outstanding. Very delicate taste. Worth to taste it!
home-made dessert: very good!

a very nice/funy detail:
