My first taste of tapas in Barcelona

We stopped by this place, Cerveceria Baviera (La Rambla 127, Barcelona) right in the midst of the Ramblas. Touristy?  Sure, very. Atmospheric as well. Some of their bites were however pretty good though. The food was grounded, old school and a tad pricey for what they charged; but I didn't really have anything else to complain about. They were actually plenty on the options which was really what drew us in initially.

The grilled gambas were actually very tasty and so were the peppery blood sausages. The deep fried strips of potatoes coiled around shrimps were pretty good too.

How does it compare (overall) to the tapas we get over here in South East Asia?

They have a lot more in terms of variety. That's the biggest difference I can see. What we have doesn't even scratch the surface of the options that they do.

In terms of quality, it's probably a what you pay is what you get thing. The tourist strip would probably/usually cost more for even mediocre stuff. But don't knock off that district. There're gems there too.
