Taller de Tapas, Barcelona

This place had garnered worldwide fame, or so it seemed from the endless display of articles on the walls and windows. Can't be bad I thought, even though there were tourists everywhere. The queue outside was always long-and that's usually a good sign, no? But it was expensive, and a complete waste of calories. The duck was overdone and therefore tyre-tough, the iberian ham was doused in pepper so you couldn't really taste the meat, Catalan creme brulee had a layer of caramelised sugar so thick you couldn't break it..I could go on. Maybe the chef was having a bad day, I can't be sure, but this was definitely my least satisfying dining experience yet.
