This is the second installment of the post titled Gluten-Free Croissants: Dream The Impossible Gluten-Free Dream.
Jasmine and I stayed at the Condes De Barcelona Hotel on the popular Passeig de Gracia; the Catalan equivalent of 5th Avenue in NYC.
Our room was the top right window. Oh look, Tous and Rolex are nearby! How handy! (Note: If you click on one of the photos within any blog post here it will turn into a slide show.)
There’s eye candy everywhere in Barcelona!! Well, yeah, but what I’m talking about right now is architecture and design! [wink]
The Barcelona Condes Hotel used to be two old palaces! I love how they mixed modern design with the old architecture. Somehow it works!
I took this staircase to our room instead of the elevator. See the dark square thing in the right corner? It’s a little velvet seat for you to rest if you get tired.
The balcony was more interesting than our room, which was very plain, but comfortable. I didn’t even take a photo…too boring!
Ah! I can’t stand it! At the hotel restaurant Loidi they gave me a chocolate that looked like the street tiles!
This place was right across the street and I ate there almost every morning. Fresh squeezed orange juice, jamon and tortilla de patata. Sometimes I’d mix it up and get patatas bravas instead. That’s roasted potatoes with a garlicky aioli on top. mmmm
Stay tuned until next Friday for my lunch at the famous Cal Pep!
