After a long holiday, I have the motivation to writing again. I have so many restaurants and bars to write from both Italy and Spain. I will give the priority to Ciutat Comtal in Barcelona.
You need to be patience if you decide to go Ciutat Comtal especially if you are going after 7pm. There is always a long queue at the door and you need to put your name into a list. First day, we went around 9.30 pm and wrote our name to the list. We were still waiting by 10pm and gave up at the end because we were starving.
Next day, we went again around 4pm and tried our chance again. Waiting time was approximately 30 minutes and we went to another place.
On the third day, we finally did it😊 We were there towards 4 pm and by luck, we got the table without waiting. And I can say that the place is deserved to wait.
Here are the food we had tried: Padron peppers, fried anchovies, tortilla, patatas bravas, russian salad with shrimp on top of a slice of bread, mini burgers, fries with egg and beef sandwich.
Padron peppers are my favourite. It was always my first order regardless of where we were eating. Imagine, we found the peppers in Sweden and I have been frying them for the breakfast since we are back:)
All of the tapas we have tasted were so yummy. My only suggestion is that better to go to Ciutat Comtal before you get starving. So you can enjoy with a glass of sangria while waiting for your desk in patience.
I found this place by coincidence to be honest. The wind was biting us and we were walking by the sea. Then I saw Glashuset which was very crowded with too much decoration. And I have decided to go inside.
Making a reservation is highly recommended. We have waited like 10 minutes in the queue just to be able to write our name on the list. Then we have waited 30 more minutes at the bar. By the time, my husband ordered whiskey which was looking so cheap on the menu. (65 SEK)
Finally we got our table after 40min and we were starving. I have ordered Poké bowl Salmon sashimi, rice, baked egg, cucumber, soy dressing, scallion and asked to remove egg. My husband ordered Chicken, roasted lettuce, smoked porkbelly, crutons, parmesan and asked to remove pork.
We have waited 35 more minutes for the food. And we were almost leaving the restaurant after a big disappointment.
Anyway, our food came. And my food was amazing. I don’t normally eat sashimi and I don’t know what I was thinking while ordering. But I loved it. It was a big, open sushi.
My husband’s food was on average and it wasn’t enough to make full one person. It was a classic grilled chicken and I forgot to take photos.
Let me tell you something funny. We asked for the bill and SUPRISE! The whiskey that my husband ordered while waiting was 65 SEK (This is our thought) but that was the cl price which means barmen put 5cl and it costs 330SEK 🙂 So please don’t do the same mistake.
If you make reservation, you can give a try but no need to walk in and wait for long hours.
