There I was, tasting the gourmet of Comerç, 24 at Tapas price! Trust me - The food is FAB and the queue is longggggg.

I was going to go with my boring Rosé but turned out that four of us ordered 1L of Sangria con Cava (Sangria with Champagne) to share to start with. I actually fancy Sangria with red better but it was an interesting experience. (Side-tracked) Though I seriously think that the longer you stay in Barcelona, the more you can drink because you can drink basically everywhere (cafes, restaurantes, etc. we are not allowed to drink on the street though.) and you crave for your alcohol from 9am til late night.

The four of us shared the famous Bikini Comerç 24, Pa amb tomàquet, McFoie, Chicken Wings in Sweet and Spicy Sauce, Grilled Baby Squid and Patatas Bravas, plus Xocolate amb Pa, Oli i Sal for dessert.

We get Bikini all over the place in Barcelona. Bikini simply means grilled sandwich with ham and melted cheese in between. Though in Bikini Comerç 24 they use premium ingredients for a sandwich like mozzarella cheese, Iberico Ham and Black Truffle. It was simple but very tasty with the aroma of the truffle. I suppose you could probably imagine the taste of it. The only thing is it was only served warmish and the mozzarella wasn't stringy at all. So as the biggest cheese monster on Earth I was a little disappointed.

But of course, it is still delicious.

(Actually I was being nosy the other day, looking through the reviews of Catalunya Hong Kong and I found out that they actually have the exactly same thing served there! But they charged such a premium price! And they have a couple more dished being exactly the same as what is served in the Ticket Bar in El Bulli... What an inspiration...)

Pa amb tomàquet is like the basic bread served in Catalan cuisines, which is basically toasted bread with tomato pate on top. But the ones here are very gorgeous, eventhough it is a little pricy for bread. The bread is lightly toasted, crisp and the tomato is natually sweet and fresh, and what impressed me most is the tremendous amount to aromatic olive oil on top. It is so simple, like everyday food, but they just made it so beautifully here.

McFoie is a beef burger served with foie ganache. The Burger is made of a really light flat bun, more like English-Muffin-Shaped, lightly toast with juicy, medium cooked beef patty inside. The burger on its own was delicious enough. The foie ganache was actually not so impressive as expected. It was creamy but the taste was flvour was rather weak. Don't have too much expectation on the ganache, but the burger itself is quite nice afterall.

The Chicken Wings in Sweet and Spicy were boneless which really same as a surprise and I must say the chef is quite considerate since not everyone would like to get their hand greasy and suck bones in front of people around them. Though I found that the meat was slightly dry and actually you can't taste any of the meaty flavour of the chicken. All you can taste is the sweet and spicy sauce. It may be scrumptious for people who like strong sauces, but I didn't like it.

The Grilled Baby Squid was definitely one of the highlight of the night. Not being a big fan of squid, it was far from marginally impressive. It was so tender, smokey, flavoursome. SIMPLY MARVELLOUS. I think they kind of kept the organs and everything inside the baby squid (I am not sure if there is a better name for that)which is why there is still squid ink coming out of it when you squeeze them with your forks. But it wasn't gross, may be just a little creamy inside which I quite liked it.

Patatas Bravas
is a common dish you get in tapas bar. It is simply fried potato pieces with spicy and Alioli sauce, which is like a garlicy mayo, on top. Since it was the first time I tried it in Spain (as I normally turn my head back to starch other than breads) I can't really say if it is of good quality or not. Normally the patatas bravas I see in other tapas bar use fried potato in cube, while the ones served in Tapas 24 use fat chips like the ones from fish n' chips shop in the UK. The Patato was not crunchy at all but work really well with the sauce. You may be able to get better patatas bravas elsewhere, but I quite like this one in tapas 24 so far!

Xocolate amb Pa, Oli i Sal is a must try FOR DEFINITELY. Indulging chocolate mousse in the mildly aromatic olive oil with sprinkles of sea salt giving the flavour a kick served in Tapas 24 (Barcelona). The balance between the rich, creamy scoops of chocolate mousse and the olive oil was impressive, while the crispy baguette slice enhanced the texture of the whole dessert. The bar was also generous enough to give us 4 scoops of chocolate mousse, which for most the photos I saw before when I was doing my 'pre-visiting research', they normally only have 3 scoops.

In general, the food is very delicious and the presentations are nicely done. It is overall a little more expensive than ordinary tapas bar but I think it all worths it. The only problem is that the most exciting daily menu is not available in Catalan! Thankfully the waiters are very friendly to explain every words on it. Also to avoid the long queue, better come at or before 7am for dinner.
