Menú del Día
Food is an important aspect of travelling. It’s a way of experiencing a part of the culture of the country you are visiting. And by eating in local restaurants you can see what people eat, when people eat and eat amongst them.
Everyone has heard about tapas and paella when it comes to Spain and its cuisine. But another thing that is typical Spanish and not as well known is the Menú del Día. A Menú del Día, or menu of the day, is a menu with a fixed price that is offered at lunch time. Typically there are 3 courses, bread and wine, or another drink, included. You can choose between several different dishes per course so there is always something for everyone.
The food served when you order a Menú del Día is often quite simple but it’s generally good and fresh. Often there are salads to choose from and you can also find paella and pasta dishes on the menu. This is usually followed by meat or fish accompanied by some hot chips. To finish off the meal, a delicious sweet dessert is then offered. Crema Catalana, the Spanish version of Crème Brûlée, is one of the most popular desserts in Catalonia and certainly worth a try.
Going out for lunch and having a Menú del Día is a very Spanish thing to do. Many people in Spain enjoy a big, hearty lunch and eat a smaller dinner late in the evening. It’s great to keep you going throughout the day and eating out for lunch is a lot more economical than going out for dinner. So when you are visiting Barcelona, do try a Menú del Día. When you are walking around the city streets, you will undoubtedly find plenty of offers so just walk around and find one that makes your mouth water!
