It’s the day of the All i Oli Expo but we had to make a little detour to the Italian deli (C/ de Bonsuccés, 08001) for truffle oil and yet one more visit to the Bouqueria for offal, more on that later…
We were fully prepared for the expo opening (fingers crossed) so to keep our energy levels up, along with alcohol resistance later on, we had a wholesome lunch. You’ll note that I’ve been to Restaurante Victoria before, but it’s a good one and costs less than 10 € for 3 courses with wine!
The second course was solomillo with a Roquefort sauce – I thought it was going to be veal or beef, but it turned out to be pork fillet. I wasn’t disappointed, the meat was very tender and the sauce was perfect. The potatoes were noteworthy too – I don’t know how they managed to get them so soft without them falling apart.
I skipped pudding, but they do an excellent Crema Catalana here – I thought I’d need a long nap if I ate it – no time for that!
Restaurante Victoria is at: Carrer dels Angels, 8, 08001, Barcelona
