Butifarring – new place in town for gourmet sandwiches
Carrer del Call 26 ( Plaça Sant Jaume)
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 (botifarra in Catalan) - 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!
