|Suckling pig dinner|
I recommend taking advantage of the half-off wine bottle special which only happens on Sundays. With this deal, get out of your comfort zone and try something new. We ordered two bottles of wine, split between three people. The first bottle was a blend of Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon: Mario de Vega Clara 2008. With hints of black fruit, and smooth finish, this is an excellent wine to pair with tapas.
Speaking of tapas, I recommend ordering a couple tapas before starting your meal. My favorite tapa is the Foie Gras and Bread Pudding Pinxto, which is paired up with a glass of Amontillado sherry. The Gambas al Ajillo (Sautéed Shrimp, Garlic, Sherry) is another excellent tapa to order. Other great tapas can be found in my previous post, Tapas at Barcelona.

The suckling pig dinner at Barcelona is highly recommended. All seven Barcelona Restaurants offer the pig roast dinner. If you dine there, let me know how your experience is.
