Mariah Milano's Dinner with a Pornstar

Barcelona, Spain
I was hired to go to Barcelona Spain to shoot a music video for French rapper Monseigneur Mike I fell in love with this city. The architecture is so unreal. There is Gaudi everywhere! Even works he didn't do are inspired by his style. The food was to die for! Tapas is my style of eating: small delicious portions of a variety of foods!

for $250 a night it was a decent hotel but expect to spend a lot on taxi's since it's not in the city center. $75 taxi to and from the airport. buffet breakfast was way too much at $35
This is a really nice tower hotel in a nice location if you don't need or desire to be in the city. It's on the coast and also attached to an awesome shopping mall with movie theatre and restaurants. Great access to a lot of great Tapas places and the room was really modern and comfortable. Huge bathroom with glass wall. I would stay here again for sure.

This hotel was amazing. The view from my window was of the Sagrada Familia church which is another amazing Gaudi design and considered to be his most prolific. The hotel is right in the center of everything and my favorite part was the shops and cafes on the street. I woke up one morning at 5am and couldn't go back to sleep so I took a walk and came across a bakery with a big window, and I stood and watched them making the bread. They invited me in and made me coffee and gave me a fresh baguette with some homemade preserves that I will never forget. They spoke no english but they didn't need to. The hotel has small rooms but more than enough room and a nice bathroom and great air conditioning which to me is so important. It's a boutique hotel so the attention to detail is great and the service was very good. The hotel is also close to La Boquiera Market which was amazing! One thing I love to do is seek out the markets when I travel. We don't have them here in the US so it's such a nice way to spend an afternoon in a beautiful place hearing the sing song of a foreign language being spoken.

$35 per person for dinner and wine was a good deal
I wanted my last night in Barcelona to be great so I went to trip advisor and picked the #1 rated out of over 5,000 restaurants! I read that finding it was tricky but I had no idea! It's in an alley (photos below). The menu is either a set menu with only one selection or a surprise menu. I had the set menu which was fucking AMAZING. I know I use that adjective a lot but in this case it smokes all the other times I have used it. Here is what I had: terrine of foie gras with balsamic and pickled cherries, beetrrot and squid salad with orange vanilla dressing, filet of cod with spring garlic and tomato sofrito, rack of lamb with onion compote and violet potato, rspberry sorbet and then a chocolate cake that was fucking awesome and then petit fours! The wines they selected went perfectly with the food and I cannot say enough how much you should go here if you are ever in Barcelona!
 
The one thing I won't do when I travel is to eat at some place that serves things I can get at home. I cannot stand when I hear Americans in another country bickering that they don't know what the food is on the menu or they can't find the crap they eat at home. If you go to a foriegn country try something different for fuck's sake! This place was awesome! Home cooking with a huge variety of Tapas. My favorite in Spain is the fried potatoes with broken egg and peppers served in a hot skillet. Also the grilled peppers with sea salt and also the Patata bravas (potatoes with garlic mayo for dipping) is incredible. The seafood here was so fresh and prepared so perfectly. The calamari they served as a starter was the best I have ever had, hands down! Served with thinly sliced peppers and fried onions and cracked pepper! The roasted pork was fucking crazy good. Casa Marina is a hudband wife team. Marina greets you at the door and her husband serves you. Another winner in Barcelona!

Catalan is not only a dialect of the Spanish language but it's also a region and a people and is so unique and distinct and fantastic. I loved every minute that I was in Barcelona and it was amazing the difference here compared to Madrid. The pace was different and the style of dress and the food, mama mia! I cannot wait to return to Barcelona! 5 Stars baby!
