I honestly can’t believe it took me this long to discover Teleferic Barcelona, a stylish restaurant with sassy dancers, friendly staff, and great bites. I was invited to check this place out and was so happy I did.
Teleferic Barcelona is located in the downtown area of Walnut Creek. Their menu consists of tapas, pintxos, and large plates including a couple out of this world paella.
The pintxos are brought around the dining room on a small cart. Make sure you pick a couple of these up. They’re small, but each bite brings you to flavor town. We chose their version of the deviled egg and a toast that had cheese and smoked salmon.
We ordered a number of tapas, but I think the croquettas were my fave. Shown here is the porcini mushroom and Valdéon cheese croquettas and Iberian ham and béchemal. I mean, who doesn’t enjoy creamy balls?!
Monday night’s aren’t always boring – Enjoy Flamenco night on Monday nights. I really enjoyed the dancing and their dancing attire were just beautiful to look at. Sit back, order some drinks and watch their feet go!
Some other highlights were the garlic prawns (gambas al ajillo) and Galician octopus (pulpo trufado). The prawns are served with a couple slices of toast that can me used to sop up all of the sauce. I was thinking of smuggling in an entire baguette the next time I visit.
Now let’s talk about the pulpo. This may have THE BEST pulpo I’ve ever had. It was grilled to perfection, meaty but so tender all at the same time. The perfect amount of salt was sprinkled on top (picture salt bae) and matched perfectly with the truffle potato puree underneath.
A visit to Teleferic Barcelona is worth it just for these churros alone. They’re freshly made to order and the chocolate sauce it comes with is heavenly. I wanted to drink the sauce, but didn’t want to embarrass my date. As he reached in to get another churro, I secretly shot lasers at his hands in my mind.
Teleferic Barcelona is truly one of my most memorable dining experiences with the friendliest staff, impeccable food, and the best entertainment.
Thank you for hosting us, Teleferic Barcelona!
