La Boqueria Market is one of Europe’s largest and most famous food markets and is a foodie hotspot for both tourists and locals. Past its decadent iron entrance lies a bustling market teaming with vibrant displays of fresh fruit and vegetables, meat, seafood and snacks that would have any culinary connoisseur spoilt for choice. There is also an extensive selection of smoothies and sweet treats on offer, I would particularly recommend trying the selection of caramelised nuts that are on offer – they are heavenly.
Bubó pastry shop is a treat for both the eyes and the taste buds with its spectrum of macaroons, intricately made cakes, freshly baked pastries and handmade chocolates, all painstakingly hand crafted by its team of award-winning pastry chefs. Its colourful array of glittering designer sweets are stashed in glass cabinets amidst the patisserie’s modern interior. It’s not hard to see why Bubo is often likened to a jewellery shop.
La Luna cocktail bar and restaurant is hidden away in the heart of the El Borne neighbourhood. Its cosy medieval interior which features exposed brick arches is an atmospheric place to unwind over a cold glass of sangria. La Luna puts a modern twist on Spanish cuisine with its fusion tex-mex tapas menu.
Sagardi pincho bar is a great place to go for a light bite to eat. Pinchos are a type of tapas that comprise of individual portions of bread with various toppings such as cured ham or smoked salmon, spiked through with a skewer. Pinchos are socially orientated food and are generally consumed alongside small servings of wine or beer. Sagardi great place to come for breakfast, lunch or even a light supper.
