Blue Frog - American Style Grill

 

Feel like going for shopping and eating out? In Esplugas a new shopping center called Finestrelles has recently opened, and we went to check out one of the restaurants there, Blue Frog. It’s an American style grill with all the dishes you love and more.

In the inside of the restaurant it actually feels like you’re sitting in a nice restaurant inside a mall in any city in the US. Outside they have a big terrace, and we were really lucky, it was what felt like the first day of spring, a lovely warm day when you could finally take the jacket and the scarf off and enjoy the sun.

The menu is great for when you’re with a group of friends or with family: there is something for everyone, even the most picky ones in the group. They are famous for their nachos for starters: adorned with big dollops of sour cream and a special guacamole with strawberries that was really good. For starters I also recommend the BBQ chicken wings: they are wonderfully sticky and tasty. We also loved the sweet potato fries (who can ever say no to sweet potato fries..?) that come with ketchup and a tasty jalapeño sauce.

As mains you can choose from different salads (I liked how inventive they are with the ingredients, these are not just any boring old salads), pasta, lots of different burgers and sandwiches and meat from the grill. The BBQ pork ribs are really good, and I loved the grilled beef prime rib (lomo alto) that is served with roasted potato that comes with sour cream, a jalapeño sauce and bacon bits..!

Make sure you don’t miss the desserts, you can choose between waffles, baked apple pie, a chocolate cookie that comes with ice cream and melted chocolate, milkshakes and much more. I was intrigued by the cocktails, and there were a few non-alcoholic ones to choose from. The staff suggested the house specialty: a blue sangria! Who could say no to that? Well we couldn't, and it was really refreshing.

I was surprised how easy it was to get to the Finestrelles shopping center by bus, another option is also the tram that stops right next to it. When you feel like doing some shopping with friends and family and you’re looking for something good to eat that everyone in the family will be happy with then Blue Frog is a great option. #BlueFrogLovesBarcelona
