Featured: Barcino Wine Resto Bar

This place is an intimate spot for a good conversation and a glass of wine. The service is good and informative. My friends and I visited Barcino in Burgos Circle not too long ago and tried several dishes on the menu: Tapas, Pasta, Arroces, Jamon Serrano, Tradionales, and Postres. We also had their Red Wine Sangria for our evening cocktail.

My suggestion is to start off with the Chorizo and Cheese Platter. Aside from the fact that it is for sharing, your taste buds will sure tingle with sweet, salty, and savoury delights. This platter is perfect when paired with their Red Wine Sangria.

The Patatas Bravas with Paprika was easily a crowd-pleaser,Β thanks to the sweet and slightly smokey sauce and the lovely roasted potatoes. Personally, I wasn’t a fan of the Pulpo Ala Gallega. I find the octopus very chewy. It’s not terrible by all means, just not memorable enough.

Jamon Serrano

The Jamon Serrano was a clear favourite. Fresh, soft, silky-textured with a delicious sweet flavour and aroma. Another winning dish was the Spaguettis Con Gambas al Ajillo. Simple, but packed with lots of great flavours. We also got to try their Paella Marisco. It had generous pieces of seafood on a bed of flavorful, saffron-infused rice. It was beautifully presented and my friends and I truly savored every last bit of it.

For desserts, we had the Tocino del Cielo, Churos con Chocolate, and Delicia de Chocolate. I’ll tell you they’re all amazing but the Tocino del Cielo stole my heart. It was not too sweet and had a fantastically smooth mouth-feel. Their version of Churros con Chocolate was actually pretty good too, but I’ve also never had a churro I didn’t like.

Overall, I greatly enjoyed the food. Can’t wait to come back whenever I’m craving some authentic Spanish tapas and in the mood for a glass (or bottle) of good, quality wine.
