an egg is an egg...meditating at the Museo Miró in Barcelona

Here again a week later for lunch.Visited the Mill Museum down the road for a fabulous exhibit 'The Timeless Art of Dyllis: Forty Years of Creative Clothing'. Then a stop for lunch and the dining room was empty at 1pm; where were all the people missing out on good food?

Started off with the Herbed Olives [$6] and a Loaf of fresh, warm Bread with olive oil [$5]. Asked for salt and pepper for the oil and got it presented so nicely.

I have been wanting to order the Cobb Salad [$14] here for a while so did just that. What a beautiful melange of delicious greens, bacon and perfectly cooked egg. The chicken was plentiful, warm and juicy.

Had the same dessert as last time but couldn't resist the Lemon Olive Oil cake [$9] with a good portion of rhubarb hiding under the luscious sabayon.

Honestly the best food I have eaten in this last year! Cafémantic rules! Had a early dinner there last night and I am still thinking about the food. Aside from a Negroni I usually do not have a mixed drink before dinner but tried the Rhubarb Mojito [$9] and it was superb with its Caña Brava rum.

I had a dining partner so we were able to taste several offerings and they were all super. Started with the Whipped Ricotta [$9] with a generous pile of toasted country bread and the Boquerones [$6] those little white Spanish anchovies. 

Then onto to her Forest Mushroom Ragout [$12] looked little but tasted big and an order of Spinach [$8] that was local and perfectly fresh.

My dealing with the meal was the Lamb Meatballs [$8] three large delectable mint brushed feta garnished wonders along with the Grilled Asparagus [$9] with a duck egg on top sitting on top ready to coat these babies with goodness.

And then there was dessert! Yes, but we had to try it to complete this culinary experiment and were so glad we did. This was the Olive Oil Lemon Cake [$9] so moist and luscious and a gorgeous ending to a superb meal!
