…. Not that I am on a diet but I typically will not eat like this all at once. It was the southerners and my last night in Barcelona. The night before be had a massive dinner in Barcelona (post coming soon) and I think it expanded our stomachs creating this void that needed to be filled. What else but to fill that void with food that really tastes good but is really bad for you. We didn’t want to have a sit down dinner but to walk around and sample food here and there.
We needed some food to walk with to find MORE food. We came across the Super Dog. It’s a basic hot dog but they have some extra crunchy stuff added to it. It reminded me of the extra fried crumbs that fall off fried chicken. It gave it that extra added something that made it better than your classic hotdog. That crunch tweaked out appetite and the southerner started to crave fried chicken. Walking up La Rambla there just happen to be a KFC and we need to satisfy that fried craving. Two chicken legs later we were on the hunt for more food.
After a couple pieces of chicken we walked around town dipping our heads in and out of some small to-go type restaurants. I came across a Schwarma restaurant. In barcelona there are lots of doner kababs but not as many Schwarma’s. I go really excited and got a chicken and lamb schwarma and told them to load it up. See above. It was perfect, tender meats, perfect amount for sauce and spice and really big to boot. It was the best thing I ate all night by far. My mom would not be happy with me because I was not a good sharer when it came to my Schwarma. When I was done I wanted another but it was a good thing we were walking around and were far from the restaurant or I just might have had to get another.
On our way back we need to finish the food walk with some desert. We ended up right where we started near the Super Dog. Next to the Super Dog was a waffle stand. As we got closer and closer to the waffle stand the delicious smell of hot waffles and melted chocolate exhumed the air and the southerner needed her chocolate fill. It was really good but a little rich for me. Like may sharing skill with the schwarma the southerner did not share much of that waffle with me either.
I guess the only thing that I can feel good about is the fact that with all that good bad for me food, at least I was walking around while enjoying it.
