21 Dec Rivoli Ramblas Hotel, Barcelona, Spain
Dinner tonight was inside our hotel’s restaurant (the hotel was Rivoli Ramblas, on Las Ramblas, which is one of the major roads in Barcelona). Ramblas is the Arabic word for sand. Spanish people apparently eat a late dinner so the earliest the restaurant opened was 8:30.
Entrée: Salad with corn kernels, pickled and grated carrots, huge slices of tomato with an olive oil and mustard seed dressing
Mains: Grilled salmon on fried, sliced potatoes and a few bits of fried tomato
Dessert: Crèma Catalana, which is like crème brulee (the custard was flamed on top).
