  1. I've been in monday about 13:00 but it was closed, I hope you could open soon
  2. Try Hispania (93.791.03.06 or 93.791.04.57) in Arenys de Mar, if not maybe L'esguard (93.792.77.67) in Llavaneres.
  3. There is another tipical place, it could be Boira in Plaça Independencia, in carretera Barcelona (near Railway station) is Tapas Bar, anb more typical is Can Manolo (near Hipercor), you can take some tapas and finish with pa amb tomaquet i pernil or some foie.
  4. We've been 4 days in Budapest this july, but we were tourists; for pastry you can try Gerbaud in Pest and cafe Ruszwurm in Buda, near the castle. For restaurants we go to Aranyszarvas Szarvas ter 1 (36-1) 375-6451, www.aranyszarvas.hu, In Buda near the river, it was the second best restaurant, we also try Fatal it was good but too much to eat and too much noise, and Karpatia also good but too much for tourist, the best restaurant was near Budapest in Szentendre (about 20 Km.), the Aranysarkany Vedeglo, Tel: +36-83-340-832 , +36-83-340-839, www.aranysarkany.hu, little artist town near Budapest. We try other, but these were the best. We return enloved with the city.
  5. Hello, I read all your topics about Hungary, but they are all of Budapest and sorroundings, did anyone knows good restaurants in orther turistic places like Heviz, Balaton, Miskolc or Eger. thanks for your recomnedations. PP
  6. Hello, Here go my menu, I'm sorry but I deleted the photo of the artichokes with zuchini, when I cook it another time I'll send you. Here we are the potato basket with fried quail egg the broccoli catalan style the porc feet "puding"? with "escalonies" confit the "mille fueilles" of 3 apples and 3 saussages and last but not lease the recuit (fresh cheese) with 3 strawberry textures I hope you like it. Cheers PP
  7. Well here are the photos of my market buying in Palafrugell, Thank you Silly Discipline. The first one are the products The second one will be the dessert I hope tomorrow could post the results.
  8. Excuse me Bux, for my bad translation, of course you were right with all the changes, Palafrugell is, like Saborosa said, the village of 3 "beaches towns", Calella, Llafranc and Tamariu. I mean dried raisins, not grapefruits, sorry. You are right about the sweet butifarra, I tried with friends of Barcelona and they found the sweet flavour "strange", here the cinammon it's not overtaking, it's more the sweet taste I need a spanish - english cooking dictionary The menu was: potato basket with quail fried eggs artichokes hearts with zuchini two textures broccoli catalan style (with dried raisins and pinions) porc feet "puding"? with "escalonies" confit "mille fueilles" of 3 apples and 3 saussages and recuit (fresh cheese) with 3 strawberry textures I have problems with the photos but i promess I'll send you PP
  9. Hello, Here am I, with my Palafrugell market., I pay for all 20,90€, so i added a bottle of Syrah from Jumilla Monasterio de Santa Ana, 4,70, so all for 25,60. I have problems with the images so I buy: 2 boiled pig feet, 2 perol sausage (butifarras de perol), 1 iberic sausage (butifarra de ibérico), 1 sweet sausage (butifarra dulce), this is a special sausage made with sugar, lemon skin rappe and cinnamon I never find in Barcelona but here is usual. A pack of quail eggs. For the vegetables: Artichokes, broccoli, "escalonies", red pepper, potato, "piñones", dry grapefriut (pasas), zuchini, 2 apple golden, 1 pink Lady, 1 granny Smith. For the desert: a pack of "mato" or requeson or "recuit de Fonteta", Strawberrys. Mint leaves. When I solve the problem with the images I'll send you the rest. Try guessing the menu, it's a mixture of vegetarian and porc dishes. Pepe
  10. Hello, I'm sorry but i can't go to Boqueria, I change my work place, if you want i'll send my challenge from Palafrugell,the fish is more expensive but the vegetables are amazing.
  11. OK, I think 19 June could be a good deadline, I also have ideas for a menu.
  12. If you are looking for catalan roots you can try Can Mia in Palol de Revardit in the route btw Girona and Banyoles, another place could be Can Roca in Esponellà, also in the Pla de l'estany (near Banyoles)
  13. I'm only a "dilettante", but if you want me now we are four, I think 30€ for a menu for 2 person without wine, gives for a good meal. I'm on
  14. Ae Oche. The last, a very good pizzeria and not expensive, the other advantage is that is near to Zucca, if you don't found place there. Ae Oche is at Santa Croce, 1552 a/b tel. 041 524 11 61. A bad experience was Ai Coristi near la Fenice, we don't were hungry so take the menu, not good and expensive
  15. Fiaschetteria Toscana. I think is a must in Venezia we've been there in Nov. 20 is like we remember and a good price. Dinner for 3 with 2 plates each, 2 deserts, 2 cofee, 1 grappa, wine and mineral water, 159 Euros. We wil return!
  16. We've been in Antiche Carampane and found so good to repeat, we also found a url in www.antichecarampane.com. the service was wonderful and the other clients also (the tables are so close you can speak with them like with your couple). The adress San Polo, 1911 tel 0415240165, if you come from Rialto is easy to find, go to calle Boteri, stop at the Vino Vino and take an italian nouveau of merlot and cabernet and continue to the Carampane.
  17. Hello Silly, Near Ravell in the market is chicken(polleria) Merce, they also have a place at Boqueria, she has foie, mi-cuit homemade, and others from comercial brands, she knows all you want about foie and all birds, if you go near christmas is a stunning place with faisans, poulardes, capons, rabbits, etc. Try them I think Petras is closed in afternoons, but his place is near to plaça de la Gardunya
  18. Well, maybe paella is not the best dish in Can Majo, but try in Elx, Web: http://www.restaurantelx.com, or in Los Caracoles in c. Escudellers (near plaça Reial) is not the best place, but the paella is perfect.
  19. Hello Silly, I agree with Bux about Carlemany to stay, HOTEL CARLEMANY **** Adreça: Plaça Miquel Santaló, 17001 Girona Telèfon: 972 211 212 Fax: 972 214 994 Web: http://www.carlemany.es Another one could be Ciutat de Girona, HOTEL CIUTAT DE GIRONA **** Adreça: Nord, 2 17001 Girona Telèfon: 972 483 038 Fax: 972 483 026 Web: http://www.hotel-ciutatdegirona.com if you like a litle romantic place near the cathedral try Bellmirall, PENSIÓ BELMIRALL ** Adreça: Bellmirall, 3 17004 Girona Telèfon: 972 204 009 Web: http://www.grn.es/bellmirall, Is very diferent from the others, an intermediate solution could be Costabella, but is out town if you have a car is a good solution, HOTEL COSTABELLA *** Adreça: Avinguda de França, 61 17007 Girona Telèfon: 972 202 524 Fax: 972 202 203 Web: http://www.hotelcostabella.com. About the restaurants, Celler de Can Roca is the best, but you can try others like Cipresaia, Boira, Cal Ros for catalan cuisine. Last but not least if you like escargots and have a car go to Campllonch its 20 Km. south. I hope you enjoy your stage
  20. Yes, 23 June it's Sant Joan (Saint John), you can find a Guy Fawkes night in Barcelona and in all Catalonia, we dance in the streets, we drink cava and eat coca (its a sweet pastry) almost all the night, then we go to see the sun rise at Barceloneta or Olimpic village, the underground runs all the night, enjoy it!
  21. Happy you come to Barcelona, if you like the markets there are many, but none like la Boqueria, if you want to eat use those in the market like Pinotxo and the others. If you go to Mercat de Sant Antoni try Casa Lucio Viladomat, 59 Tel.934.244.401, its also restaurant, but try the tapas. For cheap and good food try in Gràcia, Goliard at Progrés, 6 tel. 932 073 175 or Versio Original c.Reig i Bonet, 6 tel. 932 844 153. more expensive OT c.Torres, 25 tel. 932 847 752. These places are for normal people. I hope you enjoy it
  22. Hello, You can go either by car o train, by car is all toll highway (until Navarra), by Lleida, Zaragoza, Tudela, Navarra and Donosti, and are about 6 hours, by train there is a night train between Barcelona 10,30 P.M. and Irun which arrives to Donosti about 8 A.M., you can go sleeping. I've done both trips, if there are 2 drivers try the car its a beatiful landscape from sea to sea. Otherwise by train it could be a happening. Go to Cacao Sampaka (Consell de Cent 249 and buy some chocolates or bombons, or go to Murria (Valencia - Roger de Lluria) if you prefer salt dishes (foie, jabugo, saumon or cheese) and wine and make a late supper in the train, you will arrive to Donosti in time for a breakfast in Viejo (the old town). Have a nice trip
  23. Hello, If you want the recipe the best is go to the origin http://www.arzak.es/es/home.php
