There’s so much to do in Barcelona. Also, searching out the best places to eat and drink is important wherever I travel! On the street of our apartment, right beside us, was a hidden gem of a tapas and cocktail bar. It was clearly a very local spot, rustic and hip, with young friendly staff and good background music. Toasted pitta with hummus, rye with baked aubergine and tahini, ginger cocktails, cava and herbal teas, were all favourites.
After about ten minutes buzzing on the bikes along the port, we passed a funky looking beach bar with chairs of popping colour and cartoon themed menus. I didn’t fail to miss the juice counter inside! We went back to this place again as well, indulging in triple hummus plates, fresh raw salad and Moroccan couscous dishes.The port and beach side were definitely the best places for hanging out with a fresh drink in hot weather.The best view of a city is always from above…
The indoor food market was across the square in the Gothic Quarter, down the street from our apartment. The tastiest, softest, sweetest dates I have ever tasted, along with cheap spotty ripe bananas, quickly became a winning combination.
Barcelona is a city of quirks and surprises. I will be coming back!
