Bar Mut

It's 1 am and I just got back from dinner and I couldn't wait to blog about it because it was so good. A and I dined at Bar Mut tonight, a tapas bar we found in Time Out Barcelona. We had called ahead for a table which wasn't available but were advised that we could just show up for a seat at the bar. Normally, I'd say forget it, let's go somewhere else, but I'm so glad that I didn't this time around because it would have been so sad to have missed this meal.

After about 20 minutes wait, our server kindly translated the tapas on offer on the blackboard and we ordered 3 straight off:

Egg Carpaccio with shrimp and frites

Risotto with sausage and mushrooms

Our fantastic wine: 40% Merlot, 25% Cab Sauv, 20% Syrah and 15% Lladoner (a grape I'm not familiar with)

Suckling pig with baby onions and grapes cooked in a sweet red wine reduction

We followed the first 3 tapas with a final "main" which went amazingly well with our red wine, which I thought needed a juicy piece of steak:

Steak topped with foie gras (sweet like butter but creamier)

And finally, our dessert, a frozen greek yogurt with basil oil and tomato jelly which the server described as something akin to caprese salad which I love - and it made me soooo happy to taste it, and a bricohe with a gooey centre with ice cream.

This meal has spoiled me and I will be quite sad if the meals to come aren't on par...but we've had really good restaurant karma as A likes to say and I can't believe that it won't continue.

'Til the next bed is calling me as we've an early start tomorrow, so buenos noches!

Fantastic sights and exceptional food, what more could a girl ask for? Well...maybe warmer weather!

Had another amazing meal tonight at Alkimia but am suffering from a serious case of food coma...will have to post the pics later.
