Barcelona Tapas: Tapac 2431 May 2010, Posted by Spain in
I only managed to try one dessert at the New York Times recommended Tapac 24 in the Eixample in Barcelona, but I can tell you it was memorable. As a matter of fact our whole meal was memorable and a spectacular value for what we ate.
The “xocolata pa, oli i sa” was one of those desserts that just doesn’t sound that good when you hear the ingredient list but when you eat it, it just works. Chocolate mousse. Ok, that sounds good but then you learn it will be sitting in a half-inch of olive oil! Hmm. Well, no worries the mousse was very dark and super flavorful and was unusually dense for a mousse. It was more a cross between mousse and softened, solid dark chocolate And something about the olive oil and the coarse salt really made the chocolate taste “pop”. What can I say?
