Mike and I arrived in Barcelona armed with an impossibly long list of restaurant recommendations. And what a fabulous problem to have: too many restaurants, too little time. Gresca was one I saw repededly recommended, but we were unsure whether we would be able to snag one of the coveted dinner reservations. Luckily, we received a last minute tip that the restaurant offered an incredibly affordable prix fixe lunch menu - as long as we arrived early, we could enjoy the delicious food within our tourist budgets.

Despite trying to adjust our eating schedule to be more in line with Barcelonians, we always seemed to be 15 minutes ahead of our dining counterparts. But this meant we easily secured a lovely little table, draped in a crisp white table cloth, in the relaxing atmosphere of Gresca. Mike and I decided on the prix fixe menu, reasonably priced for only €19 each, with a bottle of red wine. I was told not to miss the famous egg souffle, so we ordered this as an additional appetizer from the a la carte lunch menu for and additional €9,80. Indeed - this mind-blowing dish is not to be missed; it is still one of my best memories from our days exploring Barcelona.
