If you know me, then you know how much of a foodie I am. Seriously, any time I get the opportunity to try new dishes and explore the hot spots in my city or anywhere else for that matter, I am always up for the experience, which brings me to this post. Let me tell you about one of my favorite lunch spots in the South End of Boston called Barcelona Wine Bar! If you haven’t had the opportunity to check them out, make sure you do.
For starters, I love the atmosphere at Barcelona! It gives you a bit of a summer in Spain type of feel with their décor and tapas style menu. Plus, every time I lunch at Barcelona, the staff is always so friendly and professional and provide a wealth of knowledge about the food they are serving, which makes it easier for you to make a decision based on your taste buds and budget. Speaking of budget, the price point is excellent! For those looking to eat in style without breaking the bank. You can seriously order a good meal for $6, but keep in mind that because this is a tapas’ style bar, and the portions are bite-size and in the end you might spend a little more than you plan—but trust me you won’t mind once you taste their delicious food.
One of my favorite things on their menu is their Spiced Beef Empanadas with Red Pepper Sauce—Lawdt let me tell you! this meal is literally everything. The Empanadas are well seasoned and served hot. Combine this with the red pepper sauce and you are guaranteed to have #foodgasm.
Another one of my favorites, is the bacon wrapped dates. Seriously, who would have thought to wrap dates in bacon right? Well, leave it to the chef at Barcelona to create this mouthwatering dish. You get a good balance of sweet and savory all in one. Definitely try this out and let me know.
Finally, a must-try is the Grilled Hanger Steak with Truffle Vinaigrette. Yassss! Good Lawdt! The foodie in me is getting excited all over again. The steak was well seasoned with Spanish flavors and the truffle vinaigrette was the perfect sauce to pair it with.
All the dishes were delicious and served in a timely manner. Barcelona is a top recommendation of mine if you ever find yourself in Boston and are looking to get a quick bite. Look no further than Barcelona Wine Bar!
