The most asked food question in Barcelona – Where can I have the best Tapas in Barcelona?
You asked the right question to the right person 😉
My goal is to take you to the real food places in Barcelona so when you visit, you don’t get caught in the ‘tourist trap’ restaurants.
So today, I’m taking you to 5 Tapas places which I think everyone must visit when they visit Barcelona.
1) Quimet Quimet
Founded in 1914, the Quimet & Quimet is one of the best-known tapas bars in Barcelona.
It has the perfect atmosphere for a quick snack & a drink. The walls are filled with hundreds of wine bottles and they make some really good beer & vermut.
They are specialists in can preserves, so all the dishes are served cold. That’s their hallmark and what makes them unique.
You can look at the menu and order what you like or let the waiter advise you and you will surely be surprised.
Some of my favourites are….
Montaditos with Salmon, Yoghurt & Truffle Honey
Montaditos with Mussels, Tomato & Caviar
Montaditos with Goats Cheese & Dried Tomato
Montaditos with Artichoke, Cheese & Caviar
Montaditos with Smoked Oyster & Red Pepper
Montaditos with Foie Gras with Volcanic Salt
They have endless options so try EVERYTHING!

3) Bar del pla
Tucked away in the gorgeous alleys of El Born is our next and one of my all time favourite Tapas place – Bar del pla.
They use high quality fresh local ingredients and make traditional tapas like canelloni, papatas bravas, fried peppers, pulpo etc
But they also make fusion tapas like suckling pig tacos, mushroom carpaccio with wasabi and so much more.
They have a wide variety of natural wines which are very different to the conventional wines but if you’re open to trying new things, you should try some of their natural wines and you might be pleasant surprised.
What to order?
• Mushroom Carpaccio with Strawberry & Wasabi sauce
• Beef Tartare with Foie Gras
