Barcelona tapas

Some typical tapas that you might expect to see in Barcelona

Around our Hostal Residencia Australia you can enjoy good and typical Spanish food , the “Tapa’s”, as a example we can guide you for you best choosing.

Some typical tapas that you might expect to see in Barcelona:

Pan con Tomate: The Queen of catalan tapa. White bread rubbed with tomato and drizzed in oil and salt. A perfect accompaniment to the rest of your tapas.

Patatas Bravas: The chips or french fries of Spain. Small deep fried cubes of potato served with two sauces – alioli (a garlicky mayonnaise) and a spicy tomato sauce.

Chipirones: I have never seen these deep fried baby squids outside of Spain.

Anchoas: These anchovies are not normally the very salty kind that you may be used to. They are served in vinegar with parsley and garlic.

Russian Salad: Not the healthiest of salads. This is a heavy dish made up of potatoes, peas, hard boiled eggs and potential other vegetables, covered in mayonnaise.

Croquetas: Croquetas are often made with ham, fish, chicken or spinach. They are made from a sort of béchamel sauce, breaded and deep fried.
