Simply the Moddest Tortillas!
One of your "Set of Drifters" favorite haunts in Barcelona is Flash Flash Tortilleria. Opened back in swingin' 1967, this groovy restaurant is located just off from Tuset Street in L'Eixample. (In the 1960's, Tuset Street was Spain's answer to Carnaby Street, inspiring a movie of the same name that showcased the hip lifestyle and trends happening here at the time.) Owned by Leopoldo Pomés, a well known 70s photographer, Flash Flash welcomes with a dynamic, bright decor dependent on fantastic paintings of a Twiggy-esque model snapping photographs at every turn. The clever wall artwork incorporates lighting that mimics the "flashbulbs" of the now-vintage cameras, Large oval windows and all-white leather banquette seating complete the retro-funtastic mood... but it's not all about the styling. Flash Flash is known for its tortilla omelets, and if you're already a fan, then you're in luck. There are over 70 different varieties on offer! Flash Flash is impresses with gourmet hamburgers, homemade potato chips and several daily specials! This place can be a little tricky to find, but definitely worth the effort! Head there around lunch time and you will see the place packed with locals! (We hear there is also a location in Madrid in case you are heading down south!)
