The last time I was here, I tried a few things so today I was meeting a friend and gave him the option of where to eat and he selected Barca.

So today I went back to Barca…

I spotted they had a deals menu where you could get 3 dishes for a specific cost, this is perfect for me as it means I get to try 3 new dishes and the cost won’t be too expensive.

DEAL : Any 3 tapas from £12.95 per person

The Food…

Pequena Hamburguesa £N/A
Two beef sliders, toasted brioche bun, chilli jam.

Yup I know I have had these before, but I thought will they be as good as the first time? lets try and find out.

OK, so they were very nice but the burger today wasn’t as juicy as it was last time so for me it was nice but not as nice as the last time.

I upgraded to the Manchego cheese for an extra £1, it was nice but as I said the burgers were not as juicy today.

Yeah this was on the menu! I even asked the guy and he explained it was a smaller size to the normal dish….so I had to try and see what it was like.

Just like the bigger version of this dish, I loved this and just be careful its very filling so if you want to order this make sure your other dishes are not going to be too heavy for you.

Overall

Another really enjoyable time at Barca, the atmosphere was good and the food from this offer menu was really good.

Next time I would probably try something else instead of the sliders now, but lets wait and see.

See you soon guys.

It had been a while since I had visited Barca, so today I visited and decided to try a few more dishes.

Just like the last time, we were greeted and shown to a table. This time round we were seated inside, which is a first for me as its always been outside.

The Food :

Pequeña Hamburguesa £6.25
Two beef sliders, toasted brioche bun, chilli jam, and Manchego Cheese

When this arrived I thought this is going to be ok and not that filling, as they looked pretty small (to me that is). Both burgers combined would be roughly a normal burger size.

Oh My God! these were amazing!!! they were so good in flavour I ordered another one, and yes I did finish them.

If you like a tasty burger please do try these, you won’t be disappointed.

Kind prawns in a crisp chilli and coriander batter. Lime mayonnaise dip.

I love king prawns so I was really looking forward to this dish.

For me these were nice, but nothing special. The flavours were nice, the chilli was there but just a small kick. If you don’t like chilli to be honest your safe with this, as the kick is nothing strong its just there and no more.

Overall :

Thats the good thing about being a blogger, I need to try different dishes plus its also good doing this as you get to find items you love, like or not a fan of by trying different things.

The atmosphere was actually nice inside, but personally I think its a little more relaxing outside.

Overall my choices were a mixed review, I really loved the sliders but the prawns for me were just ok.
