So, Matt and I are leaving today for a week’s vacation in Barcelona. I’m really looking forward to it, and one of the things I’m most excited about is the food and wine–which everyone says are amazing. We have some dining plans already in mind: We have reservations at Alkimia and Botafumeiro and our plans also include visiting the Bocqueria market (we’re suckers for markets, of which we here there are a number of appealing ones in Barcelona), eating a lot of cured meat, and, oh, yeah, drinking lots of wine. But I thought I’d see what the Internets suggest as well: Any food-related activities in Barcelona we should absolutely not miss? Did I make a mistake booking us at Alkimia rather than Moo? Suggestions for good places to do wine tasting, preferably from a variety of wineries, without renting a car?
