A place that came highly recommended to me was called La Pepita. Frequented by locals, my expectations were high and taste buds ready. Upon arriving, I was surprised to see that the place was homey, and felt almost like a mom and popshop, rather than an upscale dining establishment. This made me feel comfortable straight away. Simple wooden tables, flanked by comfortable chairs occupy the floor, while quirky paintings don the walls of brick and stone.
What really piqued my interest though was the simple menu, paper attached to a clipboard – pages and pages of tapas. Usually big menus overwhelm me, but I wanted everything and I think the most difficult decision of the day was what items to choose. To say we over-ordered for 2 people would be an understatement.
As much as I would like to explain each dish one by one, I fear I will only sound redundant because there aren’t enough adjectives like delicious, scrumptious, delectable, mouthwatering, drool worthy… Everything was phenomenal. When in Barcelona, this is truly a must! The only downside to this experience is that it ruined tapas for me forever. Damn you La Pepita!
A spectacular meal, with my favorite person. I could not ask for more…
