From savory pork and salmorejo to cardamom-infused dessert, new tapas selections bring flavors of the Middle East into partnership with Spanish favorites, Ziryab reports
Barcelona, Spain -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/06/2015 -- Ziryab Fusion Tapas & Wine, a wine and Arabian-fusion tapas bar located in the historic Gothic Quarter, revealed a new group of fall-themed specials. Part of a rotating slate of tapas selections that combine the striking flavors of the Middle East with the renowned culinary accomplishments of Spain, the new specials are available now to visitors and are pictured and described in full at ziryab.es. With a wine list that includes dozens of Catalan greats along with hard-to-find vintages from world-class wine-producing regions like the Bekaa Valley of Lebanon, Ziryab is a popular, unique place to spend time with friends.
"Fall is here at Ziryab, and our chefs have done a fantastic job of coming up with creative dishes to usher in the new season," owner Kate Burton said, "From a comforting pork loin marinated in double-malt beer and served with fig chutney to a traditional Catalan desert infused with cardamom, we have some wonderful new things to offer to our guests. The traditional flavors of the Middle East and those of Spain mesh together wonderfully, as our new fall specials clearly show."
With a centuries-long history of interaction with from people from the Middle East and North Africa, the regions of what is now unified Spain have long departed from European norms in their outlooks on those parts of the world. Even today, Spain frequently stands out on the international stage for being a European country that regularly supports Arab-majority nations in disputes in the Middle East.
That appreciation and respect for the cultures and history of the Middle East and neighboring regions extends into culinary life in Spain, too. Herself enamored both of the dishes of the Middle East and the tapas that are such an integral part of life in Barcelona, Ziryab Fusion Tapas & Wine owner Kate Burton sought to fuse the two in ways that would enhance both while delivering something truly special.
Situated in the beautiful, medieval-era Gothic Quarter of Barcelona, Ziryab boasts an impressive menu of creative tapas that incorporate a range of Middle Eastern influences, along with a unique wine list. With regular events that include Persian poetry readings and the telling of stories from the Arabian Nights or medieval Catalan times, Ziryab stands out as a truly distinctive and welcoming place in a city that does not lack for options.
With the release of the new selection of fall specials at Ziryab Fusion Tapas & Wine, guests can look forward to an evening of delicious new discoveries and memorable experiences. The new fall specials are pictured and described in full on the Ziryab Facebook page, with directions, opening hours, and other details available at ziryab.es.
