Over the past two years, we’ve learned something about Slug’s reviews: don’t read them if you’re hungry. This week, the writer—a pro at recording every meal’s details and making plates across Europe sound delicious—showcases the small tastes of Spain.
In Barcelona Bar Hopping, he reviews five restaurants around the city with a focus on tapas. He also includes detours to Italian and Turkish terroir, partly in the name of pleasing the five women accompanying him on vacation. (His explanation stops there, though we know he’s a romantic by this description of dessert: “The ice cream looked perfect, and the soft centre of the chocolate melted my heart.”)
If you’re thinking about visiting Barcelona, take a look at his picks; it can be difficult to single out a spectacular tapas nook in the city, but this journal is a great place to start.
And one last thing we’ve learned about Slug’s reviews: if you’re searching for a list of them, then for goodness’ sake, click on this handy link. If you search his member name using the IgoUgo site search, you’ll get an eyeful of creepy-crawly photos first.
