- The Spanish spoken in Barcelona rises and falls throughout words, giving it a melodic feel
Let's talk about food, drinks, and where you should get them:
- Nou Can Codina - try the croquetas
- Vinitus - eat the Spanish Omellete
- La Pepita - get the Pepita Napolitana and the pa amb tomàquet (tomato bread)
- Quimet & Quimet - order whatever you want, this place is too good to have anything bad on the menu!
- Sasha - don't miss the nachos and chips with guacamole
- try patatas bravas -- each spot has it's own version of this well-known dish
- El Trocadero
- Pizzeria La Strada - the margherita pizza is wonderful, as is the calzone (which is opened up after cooked, and arugula and cheese are then placed inside)
- Pans Cafe - don't miss the Mozzarella Pesto Bocadillo (sandwich)
- 365 Cafe (chain) - try the cafe latte, it is phenomenal!
