This saturday we tasted calçots for the first time!
The calçot is a variety of tender onions. It is one of the typical star dishes of the Catalan gastronomy, very consumed at the end of winter with “romesco” sauce.
We met in Plaza España and got in a bus up to the top of Montjuïc, in a restaurant called La Caseta del Migdia, that is surrounded by nature and has amazing views of the harbor of Barcelona.
We had some starters, the calçots and then grilled meat or vegetables, while listening to a band, who played Catalan songs during all the event. There was such a good vibe!
