Flash Flash Tortilleria
If you want a decent omlette then there's no choice in the matter. It's imperative that you go to Flash Flash in Barcelona. Full stop.
Here's some blurb about it:
"Hamburgers, steaks salads, and over 70 types of tortillas are served up in a pop-art setting of funky black-and-white murals and white leather banquettes. It's completely authentic; Flash-Flash was opened in 1970 and the interior hasn't been altered since. The Twiggy-like model adorning the walls was the wife of Leopoldo Pomés, a well-known fashion photographer of the time and part owner. Decor aside, the food is very good; the tortillas fly out fresh and fluffy and the bunless burgers are some of the best in town. It's a favorite with uptown business types, some who have been coming here since the place opened."
We had an amazing bacon, cheese, white bean and onion tortilla that couldn't have been more gooey or unctious. Top class. The only problem with this palce is trying to find it and the ubelievably grumpy waiter who'd rather die than smile!
We found out about Flash Flash from the brilliantly quirky "Le Cool" guide book. You can see from the pages below that it isn't your normal Dorling Kindersly boreathon. In fact they've now got a weekly newletter/website for London and various other cities that's quite fun.
