RESTAURANTS IN BARCELONA
Ask anyone Spaniard (or Catalan) to list what their 5 favorite things to do are, and most certainly “eating” (or “a comer”) will be on top of their list!
While Tapas, Paella, and Sangria are the most common examples of Spanish cuisine, there is really so much more to it. Barcelona offers a huge variety of different kinds of fusions with Spanish cuisine, and that of other countries. And then of course the Catalans have a whole other cuisine on their own!
Recently we heard somewhere that Spain is the country with the most bars per capita. If it is true or not we are not sure, but there are definitely many bars and restaurants in Spain and Barcelona, probably more than the average. They offer local food and meals from all around the world, and everyone can find something for themselves, even those with the most refined taste buds. Lately, vegetarian and vegan restaurants have become more and more popular, offering very healthy and tasty dishes and fruit or vegetable smoothies.
We don’t pretend to offer you the full list of the culinary diversity in Barcelona (it would be impossible), but we will try to give you some good suggestions (of places tried and proved to be of good quality). Then you need to go and experiment, and never be afraid to try something new. This is also a great way to know different cultures by trying their food. A lot can be said about a culture by the food they enjoy, and the way in which they present it. Barcelona is great place to do that, without the need of buying a plane ticket!
