Granja-xocolateria La Pallaresa, Barcelona
Another morning, another chocolate shop. This one (11 Carrer de Petrixol, 93-302-2036) was just down the alleyway from Dulcinea, but it usually had a longer line to get in. Fortunately the line was non-existent today, presumably since the long weekend had passed, so we sat on down to get the usual xurros and xocolata espanyola.
This chocolate was thicker than Dulcinea, and also more bitter. I preferred La Granja as a result, but these guys did have a flan whose taste was much more sophisticated than what I'm used to. I was also quite happy with the torrades here, which was nothing more than just toast, but it was so light and crunchy that it was almost like a cracker.
It just came to reinforce my hypothesis that the only reason why I dislike bread is because I simply grew up eating poor quality mass-produced stuff. If I had grown up eating this and/or some crispy baguettes, I'd probably be eating a lot more of it.
