Pan Amb tomate, calçots, bombas, escalivada and much more. Barcelona local gastronomy is rich and tasty. It is however sometimes neglected by tourists that rush to visit the top attractions and “get trapped” by the nearest options on their daily busy schedules. In this post we share our top picks for catalan restaurants in the city of Barcelona.
Catalan cuisine has many famous dishes and is one of the most valued cousines in Spanish gastronomy. Mediterranean in its nature and ingredientes, has some typical dishes that make it stand out. Dishes like Escalivada or the Exqueisada de Bacalao make extensive use of vegetables (and cod in the second case). Other tradicional dishes include black rice, Esudella i carn d`olla (a stew served in winter time), botifarra sausage, anec amb perez (duck with pears) or cargols. Catalan wines have evolved enormously in recent years and from traditional cava many more wine regions have appeared. Priorat is best for red wines.
