There are a couple of good ramen places in Barcelona, and I visited a classic: Fan-Shoronpo. Their Tonkotsu was great, and the gyozas amazing. It's a very humble place but it gets packed! Next time I'm going for something spicy.

A huge chia pudding (and a smoothie) at Federal Cafe in the Gothic quarter. They have WiFi so it's a nice spot to work in, plus they open early.
There are so many good Italian restaurants in Barcelona , where actual Italians are in charge of things. One of the more recently opened places is La Balmesina, and they don't do only pizza, their pastas are magnificent and their lunch deal is really good. Highly recommendable!

We are already thinking about healthy foods to start the week, Hammock Juice Station is always a safe bet plus they have the most comfortable hammocks to sit in. It's a pity they close early (at 18h) but otherwise the place is great!
A sexy arepa at new all-day eatery Enkel, read all about it in my new blog post: http://bit.ly/2yR4TG9

These are called Bombas and you can find them in most tapas places in Barcelona, but these particular ones are done Indian style at cool new eatery Masala 73 that used to be a food truck and now they're a brick and mortar too! Really good food and very easy to approach kind of place.

French Toast at new cool all day eatery Enkel. I love the place, so chilled, pretty deco and lovely staff! Their brunch game is strong, but their lunch and dinners are great too: Mediterranean with a Latin American flair.

Hey! We’re waiting for our train out of Barcelona, is there Anything decent that’s open before 12pm near Barcelona Sants train station?
Hi! Bendita Helena is amazing, but time wise maybe a bit tight? There’s not much unfortunately in the immediate vicinity of the train station I’m afraid 😣

I visited a new sushi place in Barcelona called Tako, and I loved it! Really good food with locally sourced ingredients. In the photo patacones with avocado cream and octopus, delicious!

Costa Pacifico is a Mexican restaurant focused on seafood, isn't that a nice concept? I looooved their tuna tostada, next time I'll choose the spicy one!

Ale and Hop is a craft beer bar with plenty of taps, but they also have vegetarian and vegan food! Three kinds of vegan burgers, not too shabby..!
Look, scotch eggs! They were so good. It's a new place called The Pie Shoppe that's just opened, and they do stuff like this plus lots of sweet and savory pies. They've got plenty of craft beers to choose from too.

Beautiful eclairs at new café Patachou! I'm addition to eclairs they also have amazing choux. I was impressed with the good quality specialty coffee, the teas and the ice cream from Parallelo. Details count!

Went for brunch to Dirty South yesterday: they specialize in Southern US food, first one in Barcelona! We loved the New Orleans vibe (great music,lovely deco, tasty cocktails) and the food is really good. The pulled pork sandwich is 👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼
Finding a decent sandwich place is not easy in Barcelona, but in the recently opened Perita you can find really good ones. There's an excellent chef working in the kitchen, and the ingredients are good quality. They have juices and smoothies too. 👌🏼

Looks delish 😍
It really was, fresh and tasty! And a nice presentation too!
Visited a new place, Sant Antoni Glorios, in the hip neighbourhood of Sant Antoni. The bar is great for vermouth and tapas, the service wasn't top notch though. I'd say there are better, and friendlier, restaurants and bars to check out!
A New cocktail bar has opened called 33 by Santi Ortiz. It's tiny and has that speakeasy kind of vibe to it, and the deco is gorgeous! The cocktail menu is fascinating and you won't find a mojito here. Loved it!

The photo doesn't make this dish justice: amazing pumpkin-filled ravioli with a parmigiani cream at the new Italian place La Balmesina. Authentic stuff! Their pizzas are great too, made with organic sourdough crust.

Where can i go for a really authentic tapas experience? Also, what foods are native to Barcelona? I’ve seen some posts saying that paella is not readily available everywhere. So excited to try out new things on my honeymoon!
Hi! Good tapas can be found in for example Bormuth, Cervecería Catalana (a bit touristy but still great), beautiful El Nacional, Bar Electricitat, Vaso de Oro, Gats, Tapas 24, Bar Lobo, la Cova Fumada (such an old but cool place)... I wouldn't say there's anything specific for Barcelona but there are foods that are specific to Cataluña. A lot of dishes you'll find in the tapas bars are typical from here! Paella you can find in many places but it's true that it isn't typical from here. I like Pez Vela and Can Solé for paella (Can Sole is 114 years old!), also La Mar Salada and Suquet de l'Almirall. I hope this is helpful, let me know if you have more questions! Have a wonderful honeymoon! Make sure you try some nice cocktail bars too 😊 Like Paradiso (a speakeasy) and Dr Stravinsky!

I’d go for a day trip! There are plenty of good options, Montserrat, Sitges, Cadaques, a winery..!
Unfortunately I don’t have any recommendations for Seville or Ronda, sorry about that!
The best brownie I've ever had! At Dirty South, a restaurant with southern US influences. This brownie is made with the first brownie recipe in history, and it was amazing, with a delish caramel sauce and black salt.
Visited a place called Rawmantics today, and had the cheapest avo toast I've had in Barcelona so far: 4€! I liked the place, but would have liked some hot drinks like a turmeric latte or a matcha latte to complement the offer.
I made a list of all of the new restaurants and bars that have opened in the last couple of months, there are 76 of them! So crazy how there is such a boom in Barcelona right now! http://www.barcelonafoodexperience.com/blog-barcelonafoodexperience/new-restaurants-october

I tried a new restaurant yesterday, Bar Omar. I tried to go once before but the service was so crappy that we turned at the door. But this time it was great! And the food was really good too. Here some croquetas with a crispy outside and a very juicy meaty inside. I loved their mussels from the Ebro delta with a vermouth sauce (pic to follow). They use seasonal products and everything we had was delish.

So difficult to find a proper chai tea in Barcelona, they're all made with powders or syrup. But not in one of my favorite cafes, Frenesi Cafe, I found out today. The owner is really into teas and she buys a chai blend from Melbourne, Australia. It was excellent, came with a timer and all..!

Inside a shopping center, La Illa, you can find this little place called Morro Fi (they have a couple more places in the city) that's really worth a visit. They do tasty tapas with good quality ingredients. They make their own vermouth too, and you can buy bottles of it to take home with you!

If you're not used to the sometimes dodgy streets in the Raval then heading to The Deli Kitchen can be slightly daunting. But what a sweet reward awaits you when you're there! The Deli Kitchen is so darn cute and they make miracles even though they have a tiny kitchen. I love their avo sandwich and their cakes, and then this golden latte that's perfection too.

These are tequeños, you can get them here and there in Barcelona thanks to the South-American influence we have here and that brings so much cool flavours to the gastronomic culture in Barcelona. The tequeños were absolutely amazing, filled with thick smoky cheese and delicious spicy dips. 😍

I've had this place on my list for some time, and it was not a disappointment. Good tapas and dishes to share, good wine list, excellent staff and the place is cute. It's located in the Sants neighborhood though, which is a bit off the radar, but I have a feeling that area is on the rise..!

A Japanese bowl at All You Eat is love. They have a lunch deal here for 6,95€! Pretty good. It's mostly vegan and vegetarian, and they have brunch too. This bowl was really filling and had a good sushi taste to it 😊

Such a cute French-inspired new restaurant/bar/café. The menu looked interesting, unfortunately I had just eaten and only had a juice here. Will go back soon for more!

A new burger place in Gracia! I didn't eat there yet, just snooped around a little bit 😜 They use only top quality meats for their burgers, and they use duck fat for their fries..! 👌🏼 I will go there for a burger soon, and let you know!
Quite an amazing burger with Roquefort cheese yesterday at Bar Centro. They also have craft beer on tap and they put a lot of effort into it, keeping them fresh and bringing in interesting varieties.

This is their menu: all handwritten and cute!
This is dried octopus, my first time eating it! Doesn't look very dry does it? It's very crispy on the outside and soft and creamy on the inside, and all that olive oil makes it taste amazing 💛
Another photo from recently opened Lluritu. These tiny little clams are like popcorn: you just can't stop eating them! I can't wait to go back here, such a great place. Simple dishes, but ridiculously good.
Amazing food at this new restaurant, Lluritu. It looks like any old bar, but with a really hip twist. Really tasty seafood. It's located in Gracia, and there really isn't anything like this there, so this was much awaited!

Visited new cafe Departure Coffee today, an amazing place! First of all fantastic location on a quiet side street in the eclectic Raval neighborhood. Second: good specialty coffee. Third: rotating art exhibition. Fourth: cider available. And wine. I could go on and on, but it's just a great place!

I visited Fit Kitchen again, and they have now changed the head chef and it's even better than before! They have a lunch deal that includes a salad (I had a tasty Thai-inspired salad), a main (in the photo, a tuna tataki bowl that was really fantastic) and the dessert of the day. They focus on nutritional food, the owner has made meal plans for MMA fighters..!!! I was really impressed.
