Iberian Ham, Squid, Mussels and Tomato Rubbed Bread

Mouth-watering first meal in Spain

After a few long days of travel and a rainy, windy, cold day in the city of Barcelona doing our touristy thing, we got checked into the LeMeridien on the Rambla - our home for the next few days. The warm / hot shower was just what the doctor ordered! Then we spent a few hours relaxing with the veranda windows open and a nice cool breeze flowing into the room. Perfect! Might have even dozed off for a bit.

We opted to dine just across the street from the hotel. Most restaurants in Spain don't even begin serving until 7:30 PM - which I doubt that we'd be able to stay awake until then. So off to Bar Lobo we went. It held multiple advantages 1) it was open 2) it was close and 3) it was serving food.

I chose the tomato rubbed bread and mushroom ravioli, we all share an order of Iberian Ham - such a special treat, The hogs are raised on acorns which gives the meat a unique flavor. And, as I mentioned previously, When in Sprain Sangria is a must-do.

Jeff and Eric enjoyed two huge plates of mussels.

And Rabeka enjoyed pork ribs, potatoes (and I enjoyed her spinach salad)

And Eric - hungry, growing young man that he is had this platter of Squid that he made all of us try. Good thing we're such troopers!
