I was outside of Barcelona this past weekend on a roommate road trip and we stopped by an all-you-can-eat buffet place that looked like a truck stop. It was one of those grill-your-own-meat style of places and cost like 5 euros ($7.00 U.S.). The food was just okay but, for the price, I guess it wasn't that bad. The limiting factor on how much you could eat, besides the so-so food, was the lack of available grilling surfaces for the mob of people waiting. Very smart on their part. Anyway, as you can probably guess, I won't be rushing back.
So, it wasn't the truck-stop styling, mediocre food, or DIY cooking that I'll remember. It was a damn wine-bottle vending machine that did it:
I didn't end up "ordering" a bottle but I was tempted. How could I go wrong ordering wine from a machine? Sommeliers of the world, be very afraid!
