El Mexicano de Barcelona

El Mexicano de Barcelona
C/ Villarroel 233, Barcelona

This is a small mexican restaurant that offers good quality, presentation and service. The Ceviche is specially good. However, the prices are high, the dishes are small (worth to mention the ridiculous dessert), and some people smoke, which is really annoying.

Macabeu 2009 Artés

Macabeu 2009

Although I really enjoy the macabeu wine, I must say that this one is quite flat, quite "aigualit". nevertheless, its price is below 3 eur. Unfortunately I only bought 1 bottle. My guess is that it will improve with aging. I love old macabeu wines. They taste like aromathic herbs.

Elias Mora 2008 semicrianza

Elias Mora 2008

Elias Mora has changed the label of its outstanding semicrianza wine. I had chance to open my last Elias Mora 2005 bottle. Unfortunately, it is not the same. Elias Mora 2005 is OUTSTANDING. It really fills up your mouth. Excellent taste, parfume and texture. The 2008 is correct, but too young. Nothing to do. let us see if it improves in the next three years...

Pago "Los vivales" curado Leche cruda

Queso de Oveja "los Vivales" Curado, leche cruda
This is a very very good cheese that I received directly from Zamora. 13 EUR per Kg including transportation, which means an OUTSTANDING quality/price ratio.

Raimat viña 32 Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

Raimat Viña 32 Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

This is a very good wine in excellent shape. Although nowadays it is possible to purchase newer bottles, I think that this one is in an excellent moment. Plenty of parfume and nice sensation in the tongue. Worth to taste it! For me this is a "classic" wine. I paid 6,55 eur at U. Tesi Mascarell.

Bar Velòdrom

This is a classic place recently opened again. In the past they had Moritz alfa, which is an unpasteurized beer. Nowadays they do not have it any more.

This is an excellent verdejo wine produced in DO Rueda by the famous Rioja Cellar Marqués de Riscal. Worth to taste. It is plenty of density parfume and taste.

Pasticceria Romolo
C. Garibaldi 33, Salerno, Italy

This is a high quality pasticceria that produces high quality biscuits. My favourite ones are those produced from almond as well as the other ones that remind a cork. Worth to go there if you are in Salerno. It is realy close to the train station.

Ruggieri Aglianico

Ruggieri Aglianico

This is a drinkable aglianico. Just correct. Too "flat". Nothing to do with taurasi or Villa Matilde.

Campania 2009 Falanghina

Campania 2009 Falanghina

I have not enjoyed this wine. it is too "green". It seems to me that they have made it from grapes but also from leaves.

Mare Nostrum

Mare Nostrum
Via Porto 31, c/o Cantiere Soriente, Salerno, Italy

This is an OUTSTANDING restaurant that offers an amazing quality price ratio. the quality is really high, and you feel really full after nine dishes (some of them are to share).
Pay special attention to the octopus and the pasta with smozarela and prawns.

This is a very tasty olive oil. Very good for salads or for the bread.
