Bits and Pieces – Spain

Behold the second compilation…

 

Eyescream and Friends – Barcelona: This cute shop made its debut in Barcelona and it is now expanding to other parts of the world. They have a variety of flavors and a diverse amount of toppings you can choose from. I would not walk far distances to find it again, but if it happens to be nearby I would have another taste.

 

Granja M. Viader – Barcelona: This place is special because stepping into it is as if you are wandering into the page of a history book. It has existed since 1870 and the eatery has been passed down through the same family for 5 generations! I love how the painted tiles on the floor have even become pale in some places and how old-fashioned the whole feel of the cafe is. Also, do not miss out on tasting the famous Cacaolat drink they created in 1933. I have already been there twice; if I go to Barcelona for a third time, I will definitely try their dense hot chocolate.

 

La Flauta – Barcelona: In my last trip to Barcelona, this was my first encounter with tapas. I tried several other places after that, but this remained my favorite among the ones I went to. From their patatas bravas to their multi-textured chocolate dessert; it was all delicious. I would want to go there again, and to visit the whole area in Barcelona where La Flauta is located in as well.

 

Thai Barcelona Royal Cuisine Restaurant – Barcelona: This restaurant had a pleasant ambiance, great service, and flavorful food. For a person who likes Thai cuisine, it will do the trick.

 

El 300 Del Born – Barcelona

The location of El 300 Del Born and how that impacts its cuisine is what makes this restaurant stand out. It is located in El Born Centre Cultural which is physically a part of history. Situated in the Born historical market structure, El 300 Del Born is a few steps away from an archeological site that lies in the center of the indoor area. The dishes on the menu have been inspired by this historical setting to a great extent. I liked this iron building with its high ceilings; this made the restaurant seem very spacious. The food was good and so was the service. All in all, a pleasant restaurant with a meaningful concept.
