Location Description:

If you are tired of the same old tapas, head to Boqueria, which is one of the best tapas bars in town. You could go no further than the cheese-and-sausage bar in the window and be perfectly content with a plate of smoky idiazabal cheese, with little heaps and smears of flavorful condiments surrounding it, or 15-month-old Serrano ham presented on tomato-smeared toasts. But venture farther inside and find lamb kebabs doused with sharp salsa verde, baby octopus salad, and sausage crostini surmounted by a fried quail egg;its wobbly yellow yolk poised to break and flow over the whole glorious assemblage.
