I got up early and set off for Barcelona with friends for a weekend of eating and drinking and a strong desire to revisit La Festa de Gràcia, a spectacular street festival that I haven’t seen in 21 years.
We got in at 13.45 and I was starving, so having dropped off our bags, a menu del dia seemed like the perfect option. However, the fixed price, 3 course menu del dia is generally only served on regular working days and today’s a bank holiday, fortunately Bar Victoria is different and provides 3 courses with wine, all the time, for about 11€, even at night!
I was delighted to find Gazpacho on the list of first courses. I really wanted typical Spanish food and since it was about 29º C with 75% humidity, cold vegetable soup was perfect.
To keep ourselves cool we drank a couple of bottles of rosado (Spanish rosé).
Restaurante Victoria is at: Carrer dels Angels, 8, 08001, Barcelona
