We went to Boqueria this March. After we decided to move to Dubai, and we learned that my husband’s company was going to pay for the container shipment from New York to Dubai, we started doing a lot of shopping. There was this one day where we first went to West Elm, then to Bed, Bath & Beyond, and we got hungry after all that shopping. Yelp offered great help and pointed us to this restaurant called Boqueria. It was a very delicious surprise! We decided to go with the tapas menu, and everything we ordered were super tasty.
I especially recommend the peppers, the shrimp and the squid!
Here’s what we had:
Pimientos de Padrón (Blistered Shishito peppers, coarse sea salt)
Espinacas a la Catalana (Sautéed spinach, garbanzos, pine nuts, garlic, raisin)
Txipirones (Baby squid a la plancha, frisée, romesco vinaigrette, tomato confit, crispy scallions)
Gambas al Ajillo (Shrimp, garlic and Guindilla pepper in olive oil)
Bombas de la Barceloneta (Three beef and potato croquettes, salsa brava, garlic allioli)
