Mercat de la Boqueria is by far the most famous of Barcelona’s fresh food markets. It is certainly a real paradise for foodies.

Here you will find almost everything, from fresh seafood to typical spices to fruits and vegetables to cured meat. If you want, you can also sign up for a guided tour of the market with a local chef. The tour is followed by a cooking class where you will learn how to prepare traditional Spanish dishes.

Some of Barcelona’s top gastronomic spots are a bit away from city center. The Bar Tomás is one such example. Located in the Sarrià neighborhood, this traditional bar serves Barcelona’s probably best patatas bravas. This delicious snack of fried potatoes topped with a spicy tomato sauce is typical of almost all Spanish bars – and yet none is as good as the ones at Bar Tomás. Of course, those who prefer the aioli garlic sauce as a topping can ask for that one, and won’t be disappointed either. And once you are there, you can also check out the lovely neighborhood around the bar, it’s well worth it.

If you come to Barcelona in summer, you will certainly love the typically Spanish cool drinks you can find here. Apart from the granizado lemonade with crushed ice, you shouldn’t miss the horchata – a drink of cool earth almond milk very popular throughout Spain. While there are many places where you can buy it, there is probably no better place in Barcelona to try horchata than the Sirvent milk bar. Located in the up and coming Sant Antoni neighborhood, this place is well-known for its tasty drinks and delicious ice-cream. Be sure to take a ticket from the dispenser by the front door otherwise you might be waiting for your turn quite a while.
