Beautiful Eats Barcelona
At the end of the day, Spain is just chill. Topless sunbathing ladies on the beach, sangria, sangria, sangria, a loose maxi dress todos los dias. It's a good life in Barcelona and it definitely has the architecture, the food and the vibe that encourages a whole lot of embracing. Kisses on both cheeks from all of my friends, new and old. Besos on the mouth from my smoking hot husband. And paella, fideua, and Cava to stuff my face with. Life is slow, but the trip was over too fast.
We thought we would have trouble waiting until 9:30 or 10pm to eat dinner every day, still stuck on American eating schedules. But, even on the first day, the sun is out so long and the day feels so...easy, that you don't even think about food until late.
But when you do think about food in Barcelona, here's some suggestions.
Puda Can Manel-- traditional foods. Fideua, Paella, Sangria, etc.
Granja Petitbo--Amazing salads + sandwiches. Healthy option (we ate here twice)
Euskal Extea-- Awesome traditional Basque country pinxtos/tapas. Try the Basque white wine.
Brunch & Cake-- We ate here 4 times. YUP. Salads, on fleek. Sandwiches, lord have mercy. Oatmeal, oh my goodness. Ricotta pancakes? CHECK. And Almond milk lattes? YOU BETCHA.
