is a shorter tour to show you some of our favorite gourmet stores and markets in town.
Did you know that Barcelona has more Michelin-starred restaurants than almost anywhere else in the world? Michelin is a French guidebook of the world’s best restaurants and hotels. The first edition was published in 1900, and nowadays, being awarded one, two, or three stars can catapult a restaurant and a region an internationally known destination.
On the Gourmet tour, you’ll understand why Barcelona’s restaurants deserve such lavish acclaim.
Starting at the Boqueria Market, you can enjoy a “Spanish fork & knife breakfast” at Pinotxo’s, a favorite spot of the most famous chef in town, Ferran Adrià. The owner and his family are some of the nicest people we know and their love for what they do is an inspiration to all of us.
The variety and quality of the fruits, vegetables, fish, seafood and the traditional Spanish “jamon” are just amazing; you won’t want to leave!
Just next to the Boqueria is the Escriba’s bakery, which makes some of the finest and best cakes and sweets in town. They have other stores in town and a really good restaurant by the beach where they cook good paellas and of course very nice desserts.
Walking through the old town, we’ll show you some more unique gourmet stores, a great place to buy delicious presents, including one of the oldest stores in town, “Casa Gispert,” a landmark known for its 160-year-old oven, where they still toast almonds! We will recommend you nice places to eat around the neighborhood. If you want to know a bit more about “tapas” read our blog post here
