Barcelona~Bibao Berria

This was our first "pinchos" tapas experience of our trip. From what we gather pincho bars serve smaller tapas which are called "pinchos" (Spanish for the word "spike").  When you are finished eating, the servers count the number of toothpicks left on your plate and charge you accordingly.

Sardine on a vegetable sauce. I thought that this was the best flavored pincho that we ordered.  I wasn't very adventurous and I chose pinchos that looked familar to me.
Angulas Pincho and a pincho with cheese and quince jam.
Iberico Ham Pincho
Fried items.
Angulas -Baby eels. I thought that they tasted a bit like unflavored fishcake. 

We did not select any of the dessert pinchos because this was our first pinchos bar and we were planning on bar-hopping for our lunch that day.

It was a lot of fun! Mike probably enjoyed it more with the beer he drank!
