Honestly, the food overall in Barcelona kind of sucks. Luckily, I was able to find some pretty good places while I lived there!
Bo de B – The best sandwiches in all of Barcelona. Their salads are also amazing, but you can really only get that if you eat there and there’s not a whole lot of seating. Best thing to do is get a sandwich to-go and eat it on the beach, which is just a short walk away.
CDLC – This is a restaurant by day and club by night, located right on the beach. It is by no means inexpensive, but such a cool place to go. Get a pitcher of sangria and absolutely try the dip they give you for the bread….then ask for more. Their sushi is definitely up to par, as is their filet minion.
Brunch and Cake – Pretty self explanatory.
Rosa Negra – Mexican restaurant on Via Leitana. Great drinks and definitely get the nachos.
Da Greco – Fun place to go with a big group of people. Really good Italian food! Make a reservation.
La Boqueria – This is a famous stop in Barcelona and definitely one you don’t want to miss. It’s basically a huge farmers market that has everything you can imagine. Huge meat assortment, fish, veggies, olives, cheese, fruit, juices, and a candy lover’s dream.
Wok to Walk – Asian noodles and rice. Pick you noodles/rice, sauce, protein, veggies, and any other add ons. This is located just outside of La Boqueria and also makes great leftovers.
Zion – This restaurant was right next to my apartment and my roommates and I went there practically every other night. All of their pastas were so good, but my favorite was definitely the vegetable lasagna. Definitely different than what you would expect lasagna to taste like!
Milk – This is a trendy lunch spot in the Barrio Goticco on Gignas 21. It’s a little bit hard to find, but worth it. Their potatoes were really good! Make a reservation here.
Starbucks – I’m actually not joking with this one. I got their egg and cheese breakfast sandwich everyday before class and they use real eggs instead of an egg patty, so it’s quite the delicious lifesaver after a night at Opium.
