The Art of Choosing the Right Restaurant
If you decide to leave the delights of your Sitges home chef behind for an evening and ven-ture into town then it pays to know a little bit about the area. Your chef or caterer will no doubt have a list of favourites they recommend, but what really goes into deciding on the right place to eat? Let’s take a look at a few hints and tips that you can use to decide where you’d like to break bread with the family.
Location, Location, Location
It’s written three times because it really is that important. Think about it for a minute; part of the reason we eat out is to sample something we can’t cook at home, the other reason is for the convenience. If your restaurant is an hour’s drive or a half hour walk away up a steep hill then it may dampen the mood slightly, no matter how delicious the food is.
If you can find somewhere within a ten minute walk of your Sitges rental property then you’re sure to enjoy the experience all the more. Walking the gentle sun of the Spanish summer evening will allow you to add that extra touch of authenticity to your culinary expe-rience.
Ambience Makes all the Difference
A great eatery is more than just a place to satisfy your appetite, it needs to stir your pas-sion for food and provide stimulation for senses other than just your tastebuds. Take the time to have a good browse of everything online, and ask your Sitges chef for their person-al experiences of eating there.
You’re looking for somewhere that makes you feel at home the moment you walk through the door. It’s a hard thing to describe because it varies so much from person to person, but you’re certain to know it when you see it.
Consider the Cuisine
This is the part where your Barcelona home chef will really come into their own. By being able to recommend specific dishes that you should try at a certain restaurant they’ll be able to enhance your experience like no one else.
If you’re someone who wants to make sure they don’t miss out on any of the local delica-cies and specialities then have a look at the menu before you arrive. If there’s a staple dish that you’ve been dying to try that isn’t on there then weigh up whether you want to go somewhere else tonight and come back for a taste another day.
Who’s the Chef?
The chef is the heartbeat of any restaurant. They’re the ones that make the place tick with their innovation and passion, and it’s their flair for food that ultimately puts people in seats. Ask your Barcelona home chef what they know about the master in the kitchen and learn a little about what inspired them to take up cooking.
This will not only give you a clear idea of whether you’ve found your perfect culinary match, it’ll also give you an insight into how they approach their cooking. Once you have that, you’re certain to add an extra depth to your enjoyment of their food.
