So I'm lounging on my couch after two late nights of partying in Medellin, waiting to be picked up by some new friends to spend the night at a finca (country house) for the first time, when Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations comes on the TV.
It's an episode on Spain, and the second segment is shot at a tapas bar in Barcelona.
It looked VERY familiar…and then I saw him devouring one of the same salmon with cream cheese, honey and soy sauce tapas that I enjoyed there back in early January!
He was going on and on about how great the ingredients and food were.
Of all the tapas bars in Barcelona, it turns out I go to the one he had visited! What are the odds.
Maybe that's why the Spaniard whose hostel I was staying at picked that location – so he could casually refer backpackers to one of the best tapas restaurants in Spain.
And since I didn't give the experience more than a paragraph in a prior post, I wanted to revisit it and share a few more photos.
Tony's blog post entitled “Envy” which was written to correspond with the Spain episode.
