Saturday

Jamon Iberico de Bellota porn. You're welcome.



What Mark Bittman calls the "best sandwich in the world" in a NY Times article, from Cafe Viena on La Rambla. It was definitely tasty, crispy and narrow tomato rubbed baguette, and Jamon Iberico de Bellota (couldn't discern if it was Riserva level). But this type of sandwich can be had all over Barcelona and most of Spain (especially Salamanca).




Jamon Iberico de Bellota snackety snacks at El Xampanyet.



Pre-gaming before a breakfast of Xocolat amb Xurros in the Mercat Boqueria.



The chef (el chefe?) at Set de Born was kind enough to add some shreds of Jamon Iberico de Bellota to the salad.


I hate it when Jamon Iberico de Bellota is sliced by a machine...it's got to be done by hand! Rough life, indeed;-). From Set de Born, in La Ribera, BCN.



Jamon Iberico de Bellota chips in the Mercat Boqueria, scooped into a carry away pouch for your snacking pleasure.


Jamon Iberico de Bellota Gran Riserva, Mercat Boqueria. We're talking 165 euros/kg. The Tony Montana of Jamon.

Lovely post. I remember those places from my time in Barcelona, and you've now made me miss being there. More Barca pics, please!

More Barca pix can be seen on my Piccolo Gastronomo blog and Adrian Reynolds Photography blog. And some good U2 shots from the Barca gigs.

Thanks for the kind words
