EVENT | Get a taste of Barcelona in Toronto from August 14-23 with Estrella Damm

Who said summer's coming to an end? With better weather than ever before in Toronto, it's hard to head home after a day of work. This week's about to get better with Barcelona's popular beer brand, Estrella Damm launching a fun and delicious Tapas Journey program to run for 10 days.  20 of Toronto's best restaurants will be offering a pint of its smooth lager and 3 different tapas dishes for $20!  Tonight, we had the pleasure of getting a preview at some of my favourite restaurants: Marben, Valdez and Patria.

Foodies can take part in the Estrella Damm Tapas Journey and get a taste of Barcelona in Toronto. If the amazing options of food wasn't enough to spark your interest, take part in the journey for an opportunity to win a trip for two to Miami to attend the Estrella Damm Gastronomy Congress and see Ferran Adrià, the world's most awarded chef! 

Want to see what you'll be getting a taste of at the three restaurants we visited tonight?

Marben with Chef Rob Bragagnolo

Strawberry Gazpacho | Romesco Marinated Tuna & Watermelon | Poached Duck Egg with Potato Cream & Crispy Serrano Ham


 Valdez with Chef Steve Gonzalez
La Reina | Legua a la Veracruzana | Valdez Empanada


Patria with Chef Stuart Cameron
Albodigas con Tomate | Pintxo de Tortilla de Patatas | Queso Bunuelos

The standouts for me was the Poached Duck Egg with potato cream & crispy serrano ham from Marben. As a whole, I enjoyed Patria's dishes as it went really well with the beer. You're definitely getting your $20's worth of fabulous food at these restaurants, not to mention a chance to discover your next favourite spot in Toronto.

To document your tapas journey, you will receive a passport at the first restaurant you dine at. Keep track of all the restaurants you've been by receiving a gold star sticker at every participating restaurant you visit. We mentioned an opportunity to win a trip to Miami earlier and all you have to do is share your Tapas Journey passport on Twitter or Instagram using #TapasJourney for a ticket to the contest.
