What I Ate Wednesday | A Day In Barcelona

Guess what? I'm STILL in Spain for this weeks #WIAW. I've relocated slightly from our beach house to a friends apartment in Barcelona for a few days. I love Barcelona. It's currently rivalling London as my favourite city.

I've had a wonderful time in Barcelona visiting many touristy sights such as the Olympic Statium, Camp Nou, Montjuic Castle and many more.

I'll share the photos when I'm back home in rainy England.

This weeks eats are from my first day in Barcelona and it's definitely a 'pizza day.'

Breakfast

Breakfast was a delicious pineapple pancake at a little crepe place. It was delicious. I figured I'd have a pineapple one to offset the badness of all the sugar.

Snack

Wandering around Barcelona is hungry work so I had a mid day snack of 2 chocolate chip cookies.

I've kinda given up being healthy for the last few days of my holiday and am indulging in a fair few treats.

Lunch

I've mentioned in previous #WIAW how hard it is for me as a veggie to find food in Spain so I was again 'forced' into my stable of pizza. 

Myself and Mini Greenoid shared this delight of a margarita pizza and the only veggie tapas dishes we could find of pimientos and patata bravas.

As I'm in Spain it was, of course, washed down with lots of water and a little glass of vino.

Tea

 
I met up with friends around 5 o clock and the plan was for us to share a bottle of vino in the square whilst the kids played in the park. Then move on for an early tea.

Inevitably, this didn't happen as more and more friends joined us and another and another bottle of vino were ordered.

Eventually myself, a friend and our kids (1 each) decided we really should go and feed the children.

My friends child is celiac and I'm a veggie so you can imagine the headache we had in trying to find somewhere to each.

Eventually we were kinda forced into the decision to go to a pizzeria as everywhere was heaving.

The pizza I ordered was called La Madonna and honestly, after the vino, I can't quite remember what was on it. Is that bad? I think it was asparagus, artichokes and various other veggies. 

I have to say, it was one of the best, if not the best pizza I've had in a long time (and believe me, I've tried a few!)

I'm not normally a dessert person but there was a lemon sorbet, prosecco and vodka mix on the menu and I just couldn't resist. Unfortunately in my hast to eat / drink it I completely forgot to take a photo.

Do you like desserts?

Do you eat differently on holiday than you do at home? 

Do you like experiencing the local cuisine or do you stick to what you know?
