Cal Pep, Barcelona, 3/26 & 27/14

This tiny little place packs them in! We lined up to be in the first wave of diners as the walk in business is all served at the counter. Bigger parties can reserve tables in a back room but you’d lose the ambiance there. Our first visit we sat right across from the cooking station and it was amazing how fast 2 guys could turn out wonderful tapas.

On your first visit the waiter will take over and says he will pick you a selection of things. This worked out so well we decided to go a second day and try some of the things we’d seen others get that we hadn’t had and to get another plate of fried baby artichokes. They were amazing as were the fried baby squid and the sausage and beans. Such simple things but done so very well. This place is a must to visit and I would go back just to eat there again!
