Kapadokya, Rambla del Raval, Barcelona

It was a Sunday, many of the places weren't open and we definitely weren't interested in shops trying to rob us off more money than what it cost back home to eat paella. We had missed the opening hours for Suculent because we found out too late and in the end, ran into this really nice spot for kebabs (Rambla del Raval, 15, Barcelona). Just a 15 second stroll across the road right from our hotel. It seems that the Raval district is filled with kebab joints and I hear that they're pretty good.

It also didn't elude our notice that the name of this joint was a variant of Cappadocia.

The food here was affordably priced, good but not out of this world and came in hearty portions. Just what we needed after a series of disappointments of the dearth of options. If I could gripe, I only wished that their doner kebabs came in lamb options. But I wouldn't. The juicy köfte was skillfully spiced with enough flavors that didn't threaten the flavors of the lamb. It was such a pity that we only had one meal here and didn't have more time to explore the other similar joints of the neighbourhood.
