While in Barcelona, I wanted to make a point to visit the other markets besides La Boqueria. Most of them are so different in atmosphere, decor, and food options from the famous one that I think they're worth seeking out. For instance, at the Mercat Santa Caterina there exists actual restaurants with tables and seats with waiter service. At the other markets, it's first come first served to bar stools or open seating. Sometimes, it's nice to just relax and enjoy be served on.
A salad with seared goat cheese was also ordered. More roughage please. This lightly dressed spring mix salad with nuts was refreshing to say the least. The slab of goat cheese was creamy and salty. A classic pairing.
first one the best). The potatoes here were medallions that were fried crispy with mushrooms and a runny side up egg on top. Unfortunately, the egg yolk wasn't runny enough but otherwise, a delicious dish.
