The flauta d’ibéric d.o. jabugo. A masterpiece of flavorful prosciutto-like ham and fresh baguette. If it was even a tenth as good as the review, I’d be happy!
My dad and I were still in the process of norming our travel schedule — he wanted to work out and nap rather than lunch, whereas I had only nibbled at breakfast and was ready for food — so I headed out alone. I also needed something fun to distract me from the fact nowhere in Barcelona carried the right power cord for my laptop.
The interior of the smallish cafe was charming and made me think of old fashioned soda fountains I’d gone to as a kid. Though perhaps the ceiling and piano were a little more ornate than I was used to.
As mentioned in the review, the menus are nothing fancy — just plastic coated listings of various viands.
I barely looked, I knew what I was there for. At € 6.75 it was twice as much as all the other flautas, but I was hopeful.
It arrived and I was a little worried. A slender baguette with just a few slices of ham. After the first bite I was sold. A delicious combination of exquisite, slightly greasy ham and a fresh, crusty roll.
Maybe not the best sandwich I’ve ever had, but definitely in the top 3. 🙂
