After breakfast, cheese-tasting, and now lunch, what was billed as a foodie tour of Girona also ended up becoming a food coma tour. Mireia chose the beautifully-located Café Le Bistrot at the base of the Pujada de Sant Domènec for our midday meal, and the delicious, generous servings, two bottle of local wine, capped by three desserts was enough to lull me to sleep. Each serving and glass of wine was sprinkled with talk about her life, job, living in Barcelona, and as she has a sommelier background, all things wine. Easily one of the nicest lunches in this trip.
Not that we were already stuffed, a final stop was at an ice cream place run no less by one of the Roca brothers of Celler de Can Roca fame. A serving of high quality ice cream is all we can get from the Roca family as getting reservations is close to impossible but we were happy to oblige.
With much thanks to our engaging guide and fountain of knowledge, Mireia, Girona couldn’t have been any more appealing than it was today. Unless we get an invite to the number two restaurant in the world, I don’t think I’ll be in these parts again. But who knows.
