La Hormiguita en Figueras

We took the Renfe [train] from the Passeig de Grácia station near the apartment to Figueras, a two hour ride north of the city for 9 Euro on a regional. It was a nice trip but as we were tired we returned on a BCE [semi-express], the upgrade cost us 1.10 Euro.

We found a Caféteria Gourmet on our walk up to the museum and stopped for a great lunch. We sat outside on the sidewalk and for 11.95 Euro [a little pricey for menú del día] had a very surprisingly great meal. We strarted with a Fresh Tomato Cocktail, I had the Ensalada con Salmon and the others had Pimientos Piquillos stuffed with salad [see pix] for first course, for second course we all had the Albondigas [see pix]. Dessert was a choice of a Pera natural [sliced pear] or Pastel de Almendres [almond cake - very good]. The meal came with bottled water [or wine] AND coffee. So it was a great bargain after all. The cutlery and china were very modern and the service was perfect.
