La sal del varador xiringuito

La sal del varador xiringuito

Passeig marítim 190, Mataró

This is a place with nice sightseeing in Mataró. They offer a fix price menu for 14 eur at lunch time. The quality is nice, but we were 5, we drank two bottles of white wine and they charged 9,5 eur for one of the bottles. I think that they should inform in advance about the extra charge.

Weltenburger Kloster Barock Dunkel

Weltengurger Kloster Barock Dunkel

This is a nice german beer. Slightly burnt taste, but pleasant to drink. Nevertheless, I prefer Bischofhof...
Its price is around 1,2 eur at El Corte Inglés.

C/ Ferlandina 24

This is not an elegant place, but I love the atmosphere of the place, specially now that smoking is not allowed. In addition they prepare the BEST sandwiches of the city, and probably of the world.
They have a very large selection (click the photos to enlarge them).

Les Sorts 2010 jove

Les Sorts 2010 jove

I have tasted the first 2010 wine. I think that it is slightly alcoholic. Probably in the next months it will lost this feature. At this moment, I think that Les Sorts 2009 is in optimal conditions.

The little fete

Vangelis, the little fete (China)

"I take a bottle of wine and I go drink it among the flowers.
We are allways three ... counting my shadow and my friend the shimmering moon
Happily the moon knows nothing of drinking, and my shadow is never thirsty
When I sing, the moon listens to me in silence. When I dance, my shadow dances too.
After all festivities the guests must depart. This sadness I do not know.
When I go home, the moon goes with me and my shadow follows me"
("The Little Fete" is a poem by the 8th century chinese poet Li Po)

Mesón David

Meson David
C/ Carretes 63, Barcelona

this is a classic place in Barcelona (since 1920) that offers nice quality/price ratios. The specialities are ternasco and octopus. In the past I also had a nice lacón but this time it was below my expectancy. However, I do recommend the place, if you are not looking for an elegant and sophisticated place. Worth to visit also the romanesque church of Sant Pau del Camp, nearby.

Señorío de Uñuela

Señorío de Uñuela Crianza 2006

This is a pleasant to drink wine. I paid less than 10 eur at the restaurant. Thus, I think that it's a correct option. It has a pleasant parfume.

Cyan 12 meses 2004

Cyan 12 meses 2004

This is an outstanding toro wine, with a very good quality/price ratio. In fact there is a special offer at El Corte Inglés for 5,95 eur, while its normal price is near 10 eur.
This wine is plenty of texture and taste. It really fills up all your mouth. You only need to oxigenate it before drinking, in order to develop all its potential.
Cyan 12 meses 2003 was also commented in this blog here.

Aniuska Vodka Caramelo

Aniuska Vodka Caramelo

This is an interesting drink produced in Canary Island (¿!?) made with Vodka and burnt sugar. I must say that it has a very nice taste. Worth to taste it.
