After a great 1st night in Barcelona we spent the morning sightseeing and working up an appetite for El Quim de la Boqueria. The Boqueria market is right on La Rambla near the Joan Miro mosaic. Full of fresh food stalls catering to the chefs of Barcelona, there are also occasional vendors preparing and serving outstanding food at bars with stools.
Near the centre is El Quim, star of the show and rumored to be the breakfast choice for chefs. We had lunch and it was great fun with some of the best food we ate in a couple of weeks of gastronomic indulgence.
