Last week I attended Calle Ocho‘s blogger tasting event, where I was treated to a multi-course meal inspired by Latin and Spanish flavors. Calle Ocho recently changed locations and is now located inside The Excelsior Hotel; I had been to the former location, but how would this new venue fare?
Last Friday, the 13th (oooOOooooh), I sampled the tapas at Boqueria with some friends. Tapas always bring back memories of my backpacking trip through Europe four years ago, where we had copious amounts of tapas, pork products and manchego cheese as we traipsed our way through Spain. Would Boqueria live up to those high standards?
