|Edible flowers that remind me of Hawaiian leis.|
|Les petites fraises. I rarely see these anywhere.|
Prawns wrapped in potato shoe strings.
Fruit cut and blended-- among the rare to-go items I saw in Barcelona.
Chocolate (be sure not to miss the white and red roses, and monkeys in the upper right corner.)
|Nuts and nougat.|
Your source for peppers, garlic and any other spice.
|Red hot pepper powders.|
Juanitu, the owner Pinotxo, of one of the famous establishments at La Boqueria. Despite his success and popularity, he is warm, down-to-earth, charming...oh I can't imagine a man of his stature in a comparable city in the US being so ingratiating with his customers.
|Cortado, not yet stirred.|
|Tortilla with toast from Pinotxo.|
|Quim's at La Boqueria serving up traditional Catalan dishes.|
|At 9:00 am, the wine is chilling and beer is enjoyed.|
Warning: Vegans and vegetarians may find some of the remaining photos to be offensive. Some of them are unusual (which is why I am presenting them), and well, I didn't know that some of these things were considered food for humans.
Many of the fish are still alive at La Boqueria. Here, lobsters' claws are rubber-banded together.
|Fresh sardines. These I wish I could find more of in California.|
|These could double as props in a horror movie.|
|The only other time I have seen sting rays, whole, is at the aquarium.|
|Pigs feet and ears.|
|Cow tongue and other cow parts.|
|Goose and duck eggs.|
I could hardly get enough of this place...and that was just La Boqueria! The narrow streets around the market were dotted with chocolatiers, bakeries, dairy shops and other eateries that I have tried to cover in previous posts. Friends were wondering what I did all day since I didn't make it to the major museums. I was eating and taking food porn 24-7!
