Get the cuttlefish with the fried egg. It’s a little place so you have to stand and wait for a table, but it goes fast worth it!
Also in the Boqueria Market check out Pinotxo Bar and Kiosko Universal

This is a fun spot for tapas off Las Rambles.

MY FAVORITE PLACE IN BARCELONA!
Everything is amazing, but I really loved the MC foie burger and potatoes with egg and chorizo.

This used to be Albert Adria’s tapas bar- and it’s still very good but it’s always packed.
Avenida del Paralel’ in Barceona where the 41º22’34” parallel north line passes through.
Very difficult to get a reservation, but a must see if your traveling to BCN!
It is the latest restaurant from Albert Adria, so you know its going to be something special.

This is my friend Mateo’s restaurant- we cooked together in Spain. His patatas bravas put anyone else’s to shame and his tuna tartar is off the charts. Total hidden gem.

This is an extension of the Roca Brothers, whom I worked for at their 3 star restaurant in Girnoa.It’s really awesome food and gives a insight into their creativity.

I used to work here with Chef Jordi. This is a pricey 1 Michelin Star spot- but it’s well worth it. Make a reso.
