Louie Loves LA: BCN

SANDWICHES.  Spanish sandwiches.  Pressed on neat rectangles of white bread and thin Euro baguettes. The bread is crispy, the cheese is melted and the whole thing comes wrapped up in brown paper like the lovely little gift it is. This place is basically our dream and opened up in the neighborhood so naturally we go embarrassingly often. First the Bikinis – these come on pressed on white bread cut into perfect triangles. The bikini is thin and easy to eat with all the components evenly distributed. Our fave is the Serrano ham which comes with manchego cheese, the thinnest slices of portobellos and truffle aioli. Heaven. The smoked trout is also tops with a kick form piquillos and picked fennel. The bocatas come on baguettes also pressed and crisp and melty. Our fave is the tuna melt with extra sharp cheddar, shaved fennel and caper aioli. Yes please! The braised short rib is pretty insane too. And then there is the artichoke with olive tapenade and basil. There are a flew flatbreads and salads too which are surely delicious, but we’d recommend starting with a sandwich for sure. Everything comes with fresh green salad on the side, or the daily gazpacho. But you hopefully have room for some patatas bravas on the side because – yum. The space is super cute, everyone is very friendly and its nice and quick. An absolutely perfect lunch.
