So we have taken it upon ourselves to amalgamate our local 12 years experience in the city via our blog. Whether you are planning on coming over for the festivals, want to find out vegan eats or general insider information, we will keep you in the loop.

Lip-smackingly good!


Butifarring – new place in town for gourmet sausages


Carrer del Call 26
08002 Barcelona

When walking around in Barcelona it isn’t hard to miss the surge of frankfurt places and hamburger joints (hamburgueserías) in the city. The average sausage place may not have had an ounce of cool factor when compared to its competitors but perhaps that is changing because  people tend to be partial for a sizzling sausage too.

We recently wrote about Idò DO Balear, where you can buy succulent types from the Balearic islands and they are also popular during the calçotada season.
In Catalonia, the typical sausage is the butifarra – a delicious white sausage that is used in a variety of traditional and tasty Catalan dishes. We recently visited Butifarring, a new restaurant in the Gótico area, dedicated to serving gourmet sandwiches including none other than the butifarra. It is a simple concept really, quality sausages teamed with craft beer in a casual and friendly environment. Butifarring is committed to artisan, local and seasonal produce, with the meat  sourced from a company Olèrdola (Barcelona), near Vilafranca del Penedès. These aren’t your average bocadillos, they are sandwiches made with love!

If you intent to visit and sample the city’s gastronomy, DestinationBCN offer central Barcelona apartments that make the ideal base for your stay.
