    Lamprais is a combination of a special curry, rice and meatballs, which actually origins from the Netherlands. The meatballs are actually “frikkadels”, which is a meatball containing both meat and mashed potato. This is then all wrapped in a banana-lead and baked.

  • Kochchi Sambola
    This is an exotic recipe with coconut. And it’s hot. Although it depends on the cook, this little guy might result in your mouth feeling like a volcano eruption. That’s because of the chili peppers that are a key ingredient in this dish. Combined with Tapioca, this is a sensation of sweet and hot.

The Ultimate Tapas & Wine Tour

The tapas tour led by Penelope was one of the highlights of our trip to Barcelona.

Penelope is well-spoken, entertaining and full of information.

We were a mixed group of Italian and Irish and she managed to give attention to both sides, which was very well done.

The food was delicious and we returned to some of the places we visited the next day.

Well worth it and recommended!
