Naš najljubši tapas bar v Barceloni/Our favorite tapas bar in Barcelona

Pa dajmo še malo o Barceloni. Malo zato, ker se je lepo spominjati teh počitnic v vsakodnevnem kaosu, ki ga živim, odkar smo se vrnili domov, malo pa tudi zato, ker je še toliko vsega za povedati o dobri španski hrani – predvsem tapasih.

Naš najljubši kraj, kamor smo v sedmih dneh raziskovanja Barcelone zavili kar trikrat, je bil zagotovo El Vaso de Oro – tapas bar ali pivnica, kakor lokal poimenujejo sami. Sicer nič kaj posebnega na prvi pogled, a že na drugega, se zaljubiš vanj. Vedno nabito poln, pretežno z domačini. Lokal deluje kot neka ladja, na kateri strežejo in kuhajo samo moški – mornarji, a ti obvladajo svoj posel. Sedeti je možno praktično samo ob šanku, kar je super, saj lahko ves čas opazuješ, kaj tvoj mornar počne s hrano, ki bo pristala na tvojem krožniku.

Španska tortilija – omleta – je ena tistih stvari, ki jo pri nas doma nikoli ne jemo, čeprav niti ne vem, zakaj. Je okusna, nasitna in čisto spodoben obrok ob skledi sveže solate. Kot prigrizek pa je zame sploh super, saj jo je fino poskusiti in se je hkrati ne preveč najesti. Vsaj za moj okus. Morda zaradi jajc. Mi je pa zelo všeč kombinacija s krompirjem.

Tudi Španci imajo svoje krvavice, svoj Black pudding. In to ne kar nekaj. Tale zadeva je bila najboljša možna variacija te, zame ne preveč priljubljene jedi. Nikoli še nisem jedla tako dobre. Krasna je bila. V kombinaciji s sladko praženo čebulo pa neprekosljiva.

In v tem baru smo jedli tudi najboljše olive na svetu. Brez heca! Jaz sicer obožujem olive, posebej tiste, ki so vložene v olje, ne v slanico, a tele so bile zmagovalne. Nebene grenkobe, nobene slanosti, kislosti in kar je še tega. Preprosto odlične. Celo princeska, ki sicer oliv ne je, je želela, da naročimo še eno porcijo;-)

In kaj je tole? Ruska solata v Španiji. Verjetno se še komu zdi čudno, da v vsakem tapas baru v Španiji ponujajo Rusko solato, a ko sem iskala razlog za to, sem našla samo razlago, da jim je ta solata, ki jo je sicer izumil neki Rus, strašno všeč in so iz nje naredili neko svojo varianto. Res je odlična. Kombinacija krompirja, tune in majoneze – morda se sliši preveč nasitno, močno, bljaki, a v resnici je zelo okusna. Smo jo pa jedli še v nekem drugem lokalu, pa je bila tale v Vasotu veliko boljša.

In še klasična krompirjeva solata, a zelo zelo okusna. Dolgo je že nisem jedla in mi je morda priklicala v spomin dobre stare čase, ko smo ob petkih doma jedli ocvrtega osliča s krompirjevo solato, a kakorkoli, zelo se je prilegla. Celo obljubila sem si, da jo v kratkem,doma pripravim tudi mojim dragim.

Zame najboljši tapas – ocvrte zelene mini paprike z maldonsko soljo, s katero precej razsipno ravnajo. Morda sem jaz plačala več, ker so me seveda na tržnici takoj zavohali, da sem turistka, a meni se zdi 5 EUR za 100 g soli veliko.

Ocvri andaluzijski baby lignji so bili menda odlični. Mehki in zelo okusni.

In še en azelo značilna jed – patatas bravas – ali ocvrti krompirček s čilijevo omako in majonezo, zmešano s kislo smetano. Dobra kombinacija, ni kaj.

Ko takole z distance gledam na jedi, ki smo jih jedli v Barceloni, se mi zdi vse tako kalorično, mastno, ocvrto in nezdravo. Pa vendar me ni tam nikoli bolel želodec, pekla zgaga ali kaj podobnega. Očitno so za te težave doma res krive še druge primesi in ne samo hrana – stres je tisti, ki nas bo pokopal. Če se bomo seveda prepustili temu noremu tempu in pritiskov od tu in tam. Jaz bom kmalu rekla “stop”!

Raje pojem nekaj dobrega, sem v dobri družbi in občudujem drugo, krasno stran tega našega sveta. Pa vi?

English version

Let’s talk about Barcelona for a while. It is great to remember this vacation in everyday chaos that is going on ever since I am back, and there is also so much to tell about good Spanish food – especially tapas.

Our favorite place where we kept returning in our 7-day-trip was absolutely El Vaso de Oro – tapas bar or could also be called bar, as it is known there. It’s nothing special at the first glance, but then in a moment you fall in love with it. It is always full, mostly there are local people hanging there. It looks like a ship where there are only men serving and cooking – sailors that really handle their work. It is only possible to get a sit at the bar-bank, which is great by the way, because it gives you the opportunity to observe what the sailor does with the food that is going to end up on your plate.

Spanish tortilla – omlette – is one of the things that we don’t eat at home. I don’t really know why. It is tasty and fitting and together with a great bowl of salad it makes a pretty nice meal.  As a snack it is even better for me, because it’s nice to try it and at the same time not eat too much of it. Maybe because of the eggs. Although I love the combination with potatoes.

Spanish also have blood sausages, their Black pudding, but it is not just something. It was the best variety of this, in my opinion not too popular dish. I’ve never tasted so delicious one. With the combination of sweet fried onion it was uncompetitive.

We also tasted the best olive in the bar. No kidding. The best ones. I love olives, especially the ones that are put in oil, not in the salt, but these ones were really THE ONES. No bitterness, no saltiness, sourness etc. Simply delicious. Even the princess who doesn’t eat olives wanted another portion of them. 😉

And this? Russian salad in Spain. Probably we were not the only ones who found that strange, serving Russian salad in Spanish bar. But the only explanation I came up with was that they just love this salad that had been invented by a Russian guy. They added their style and made it perfect. Combination of potatoes, tuna fish, and mayonnaise – maybe it sounds too fitting, strong, but truly it is very tasty. We tasted it in another place as well, but this one here in Vaso, was better.

And the classical potato salad, but very, very tasty. I haven’t eaten it for a long time and maybe it brought nice memories, good old times, when we had eaten it on Fridays together with fried hake. I even made a promise to myself that I am going to make it at home to my dear ones.

The best tapas in my opinion – fried green little peppers with Malden salt, which is used in large amounts. Maybe I paid more at the market because they immediately figured out I was a tourist, but 5 EUR per 100g of salt is a lot, I think.

Fried Andalusian baby squids were excellent, well at least I’ve been told so. Soft and tasty.

And another typical dish – patatas bravas – or fried chips with chili sauce and mayonnaise mixed with sour cream. Excellent combination, no doubt!

When I look at the dish that we tried in Barcelona, I found them all full of calories, fatty, fried and unhealthy. But I never had a stomach ache, pekla zgaga or anything else. Obviously there is something else to be blamed for the pain, not just food – stress is the thing that will bring us all down. If we let it get to us, of course. I would soon say stop to all of the pressure from everywhere.

I rather eat something tasty, or hang out and admire the other part, the beautiful one, of the world. What about you?

    Ko sem se tako sprehajala po postu navzdol in izbirala kaj bi jedla, sem bila na koncu čisto zmedena :)))) Mislim, da bi poskusila kar vsega malo.

    Gledam, berem in požiram sline :))) Saj ne vem, če se lahko odločiš, kaj zmaga. Jaz se ne bi mogla, sem prepričana.

    Definitivno moramo reči stop! Naše zdravje(glede želodca te čisto razumeme) je preveč dragoceno!

    Krasna reportaža! Škoda, da nisem vedela za tapas bar, ko sem bila januarja v Barceloni. Sem pa jedla polovico teh jedi v drugih tapas barih in mene so najbolj navdušile paprike in odličen krompirček z majonezno prelivko. Pregrešno dobro :-)))

    Vauuu, mega tale pregled tapasov. Glede na to kar smo v šoli videli na slikah, namreč sem španski razred, zgleda tole odlično. In prav super je vedeti nekaj o teh prigrizkih. Kaj pa jamon serrano, ste poskusili? 🙂

    Takrat sem bila noseča, tako da pršuta nisem smela jesti. So ga pa poskusili moji in menda je res odličen.
