Barcelona Blog

It can all be a little overwhelming, the city may not be huge but the culture, activities, events, eateries etc. is vast. 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!

Lunch made with Love at Organic

Don’t Panic! There’s always Organic!

This contemporary, inviting restaurant with its contemporary and wholesome philosophy is considered an essential grazing point for many locals (hence the fact that every time I visit, I see a selection of regular faces, in fact I may well be one of them.)

La Palmera, great lunch tasting menu

For lunch we try to go at least once a week to La Palmera. Mind you this is not easy since the place is an insiders favorite and therefor impossible to get in after 2 (so be early). No write ups in the tourist guides but truly a great find.

Acai, interesting piece in Barcelona’s gastronomic puzzle

At the foothills of Montjuic, tucked away in a little-known corner of Poble-Sec you’ll find this stunning gourmet restaurant. With a total staff of 4 (two in the partially visible kitchen and two on the floor), this top-quality yet intimate jewel is the brainchild of a young professional couple with a penchant for organic cuisine with conscience.

Breakfast around the corner at Tapas 24

On a regular basis we visit Tapas 24. A great place for breakfast and lunch. We love the ‘Ous estrellats al gust’ with ‘bull negre’, the baby squid sandwich, the ‘Mojama’ with almonds and the always-fresh ‘Boquerones al limón’ accompanied by very good ´pa amb tomaquet’.

El Xampanyet

Locals swear by this cornerstone of Catalan charm, where a whole host of young and not-so.young go to gaggle, graze and gulp. Cava flows like water, at this unpretentious, rustic little Champagne bar in the heart of the Borne. Tucked away near the Picasso Museum, El Xampanyet is a collision of old world charm and new world flava.

What’s there to nosh in Barcelona? A guide to kosher food

Keeping Kosher while on holiday in Barcelona, is challenging, but not impossible. It’s true to say that Barcelona isn’t traditionally famed for its prolific Jewish population, but things are changing.

Dos Palillos, Asian Snack bar in Raval

Tagged as an Asian snack bar this place will sure make an impression on the culinary scene in Barcelona. Just opened on May 1, 2008 it is located next to the Camper hotel in Raval. Apart from the fact that the entire staff wears camper shoes, there is no direct connection between the 2 says Albert Rauric (former head chef at El Bulli).
