L’Eggs – the perfect place for egg lovers

Eggs – we all know they are full of protein, are a key ingredient when it comes to a cooked breakfast and can be cooked in lots of different methods. Chicken eggs are the most popular, however you will find small gourmet quail eggs used in tapas dishes. It is interesting then, that Barcelona is now home to the first eggs restaurant L’Eggs, which is dedicated to a variety of dishes but mostly consisting of this dairy product. Why is it making a buzz? Well chef Paco Perez, famous for his avant-garde cooking style, is behind the concept.

Butifarring – new place in town for gourmet sausages

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.

Beyond the rabbit food – vegetarian options in Barcelona

Let’s be honest, we don’t all like salads. Even the ones that do, often desire something a little creative every so often when selecting a healthy vegetarian option eating out. Believe it or not, even some of the team prefer to have an option rather than meat from time to time. More and more places are offering tasty salads with interesting ingredients and creative tapas. Here we have selected a few places that offer alternative vegetarian options other than your usual onion and goat cheese tart.

Creative cooking at Saboc in El Born

Much has been said about up and coming bars and restaurant in the Born neighborhood of Barcelona. When we heard that Saboc restaurant offered a menu with food cooked at different temperatures, we knew we had to find out more.

Quality burgers at Oval Barcelona

Oval is what you get when you team gourmet burgers with upscale interior design. Sure there has been a re-emergence of burger joints in Barcelona, with the likes of Kiosko frequently packed with carnivores, but Oval does offer a different sensibility.

Vermut – the aperitif in Barcelona

The once traditional culture of aperitif with vermouth, known here as vermut, has somewhat re-emerged. The art of vermouth drinking is something that really starts to mark the real days of summer. A simple glass traditionally accompanied with salty snack such as olives, becomes habitual during the hotter months.  Sitting on the terrace with a glass of vermouth, while relaxing in the sun is most definitely a delight. Let’s not forget that you can also visit a bodega and treat yourself to more than a drop straight from the tap. Can life get much better? Barcelona has an abundance of places to drink, so whether you prefer to sit in a traditional bar or somewhere more contemporary, below you will find a list of some our favorites.
