Spain: Cerveceria 100 Montaditos
Even though we just had dinner at Ciudad Condal, we still ducked into Cerveceria 100 Montaditos for an after-dinner snack:
The ordering process was super easy and tourists-with-crap-Spanish friendly. Just peruse the menu and write down the number of the sandwich you want on the notepad:
Next, tear off a sheet and take it to the counter:
Minimum verbal communication necessary. Wait for your number to be called and then voila! Sandwich time.
Montaditos are tiny tapas-sized sandwiches. Cerveceria 100 Montaditos offers well, 100 different montaditos ranging from 1 € to 1.50 € each.
We each ordered one montadito. First was #74, jamón ibérico con salmorejo y tortilla de patatas or iberico ham with gazpacho and potato omelet (1.20 €). It came in a mini-ciabatta bun:
#84 was salmón con aceitunas y mayonesa or smoked salmon with olives and mayo (1.50 €). It came in a grain bread bun:
Finally, to keep it simple, we got #8, pollo asada or roasted chicken (1 €):
Chips are an extra 1 €.
Not sure if I could get full off of montaditos without ordering half a dozen for myself, but Cerveceria 100 Montaditos is certainly a good, cheap option for a quick meal (or snack) in Barcelona.
Apparently Cerveceria 100 Montaditos has reached the U.S.! If you live in Florida, you're in luck. If you're on the West Coast like I am...give it a few years.
