I've decided it's a tradition from now until we leave Espana: on Sunday's we're getting paella. Each week, I'll write a review of the place we go so when you come to visit, you can lead the way:)
Our first stop was Bar Leo in Barcelonetta. "Leonora", the owner and cutest bartender you ever met (age 70+), seems to have had a major crush on an old flaminco dancer named "Bambino" as the walls are covered in photos and newspaper clippings of his accomplishments:
As you can see, we're pretty excited to start the tradition:
Leonora's paella was amazing (note: it's the only paella I've ever had but I can't imagine anything more rico).
Delicioso (and for everyone who thinks I am allergic to seafood, it's not true anymore!)
Afterwards, Leonora gave us shots of liquor de cafe on the house. Sitting with us are other "Halfbrighters" - Maria from Kansas City and Nikki from San Francisco / Hamburg, Germany.
