World's best tapas and world's best fried potatoes

Where would you go to have "the best tapas in the world"? Barcelona, of course. And "the best fried potatoes in the world?" Surprise. Barcelona, again. Who says so? "The Guardian" from England in a recent article entitled "The 50 best things to eat in the world, and where to eat them". And both of these places are within walking distance of the hotel. Well, let´s let those at the Guardian speak for themselves.

Best place to eat Tapas: Cal Pep, Barcelona
"Cal Pep does completely amazing tapas. It has a brilliant atmosphere, and the bar is presided over by the owner, Pep, himself. Order the langoustines with onions, chickpeas, spinach and bacon, and fried seafood."
Plaça de les Olles 8, Barcelona, 0034 93 31 07 961.

Best place to eat Fried Potatoes: Bomba Bar Cova Fumada, Barcelona
"It's an ancient place, with a marble bar on which they note down what you've had with chalk. Father and son run the bar, while the grandmother and mother look after the stove. Go for the bomba, crushed potato balls with minced meat, bread-crumbed and deep-fried with a spicy sauce."
