Spending your days filled with tapas and paella is what comes to mind when visiting the capital of Catalonia. But well, let’s be honest. As delicious as those tiny bites might be, after a few days you might want to go for something else. Luckily, as diverse as the city of Barcelona is, as diverse as the food on offer. For a golden mix, check out our selection of burgers, tacos and -of course- tapas.

BURGERS: Makamaka

Hard to believe, but there used to be a time in which I wasn’t much of a burger fan. Well at least, that was until I visited Makamaka for the first time a few years back. An instant game changer. From hungry man patties to hot mama’s, these burgers will satisfy all. Perfervid burger fan ever since. Their beach orientated location and large terrace make this the perfect spot for afternoon hangouts or hangover brunches.

TACOS: Café Carabela

Because Mexican food is always a good idea. From fajitas to enchiladas and tacos, Cafe Carabella serves it all. Complemented with a good pitcher of Sangria, surely. For those in the mood for something else than sangria -which I find hard to believe, but – there is also an extensive cocktail list on offer. Located a 100 m from the seafront harbor, this is a superb pit stop from the beach into town.

TAPAS: Casa Lolea

Casa Lolea, world-renowned for its dotted bottled sangria. Which is the first and foremost reason enough to visit this tiny restaurant hidden in the streets of Eixample. That, and the cozy atmosphere, playful interior and -undoubtedly- the top-notch food. Their selection of yummy tapas is something I can go on and on about. But most importantly, make sure to try the legendary truffle risotto, something we’re still craving for…
