Bun Bo Vietnamese – heavenly food in Barcelona

Bun Bo Vietnamese – heavenly food in Barcelona

After a serious overdose in Japanese we decided to tap back in to some much needed Vietnamese at Bun Bo and it didn’t fail to get my tastebuds racing. They do an incredible menu del día at just a fraction of the normal price between 13.00 and 16.30, where you can tuck in to three courses and a drink. Bun Bo Vietnam offers succulent dishes, tasty noodle soups and delicious entrees. They now have a new establishment in Raval, but the original restaurant in the glorious Gothic quarter still proves popular.

Explore Barcelona by bike

One of the most popular ways to see the city is by bike, not only is it more personal and fit but it is a great way to disperse yourself in to the city. You will see many residents here using the red bicing bikes, unfortuantely these bikes are for residents only but the city does have many companies that offer bike rentals to tourists and reasonable prices. We have taken the time to list some of our favorites.

After-work drinks at Mat Bar Barcelona

When we heard that a new “straight-friendly” bar was opening in Gayxample by none other than the super duo behind the successful cafe Federal and candy store Papabubble, we had to check it out. Specifically targeted as an after-work bar, we were keen to see what all the fuss was about, particularly after it’s busy inauguration. Upon entry, you know you are entering a different world with the creative retro sports theme used throughout the space – with the ping pong rackets decorating the walls and skipping ropes draped opposite the bar.

Cosmo Gallery and Cafe – a creative hub

Cosmo Cafe and Gallery is a laid back and colorful space, ideal for meeting up with friends, reading a book with a coffee and watching the hustle and bustle of people passing. Here they serve delicious cakes and pastries and I can also recommend their chai tea latte. Situated in a modern art gallery you will find walls decorated with modern pieces of art and an eclectic mix of graphic designs by newcomers – available to buy in their shop. The space serves as a beautiful merge between interior design and atmosphere making it a great stop for a spot of coffee.
