Mercat de la Boqueria, Barcelona

I went travelling from 18 Nov – 18 Dec. I’m now blogging about some of the places I went to… posts are not written in chronological order.

I’ll let the pictures do the talking for this post. I went to this market with my family a few days ago, where we savoured everything around us with much delight. Loved the bustling atmosphere, vibrant colours, unfamiliar foods and – well, to put it bluntly, stopping myself from performing the unbecoming act of drooling.

Also, I tried my first pomegranate here! It was marvellous because it didn’t really taste like what I had always thought it would (mushy and sour… who knows where I got this idea from). The gently crunchy texture and mild sweetness of it was very refreshing in the morning.

And this was my breakfast – baby squid with crunchy vegetables artfully arranged :-) Very delicious; it tasted of Spring (nevermind that it’s Winter) – fresh, nicely flavoured and cooked to perfection. I finished it off with a cafe cortado, which became my staple in Spain – a shot of espresso with a dash of milk.
