Don't miss a visit to La Bouqueria, one of the world's 10 best gourmet markets, located on La Rambla. It is absolutely amazing....there is no food which can not be purchased there, from exotic meats and cheeses to boutique candy, from foie gras to emu eggs, from candied fruits to the most beautiful fresh fruits and vegetables you have ever laid eyes on, from wine to coffee...I could go on and on. Not to be missed if you are a foodophile.
Cured meats, anyone?
Eggs were abundant and ranged in size from tiny quail to dinosauresque emu and ostrich offerings.
The pastries pretty much had me at "hello". Frosted croissant with jimmies, anyone?
One can never go wrong with chocolate.
I think I'll stay over here by the fruit...where it's safe.
