Where to eat, drink and party in Barcelona
Catalan cuisine is famous for its impressive seafood dishes and flavoursome vegetables. Forget paella, Fideuà is what you should try! Made with noodles instead of rice and quite liberal with veggies or seafood. Catalan region is located on the coast but is still mountainous and they brought their distinctive terrain right on the plate with 'Mar Y Muntanya' ('Sea and Mountain') dish which is a mix of meat, fish and seashells. Also delicious is Pa Amb Tomaquet, a toasted bread dipped in a bit of olive oil with juicy, fresh tomatoes. Escalivada or grilled veg sometimes accompanied by anchovies is also very delicious. Their dessert called Mel I Mato is especially favoured by cheese lovers; made from soft goat cheese, honey and sometimes walnuts. Read more about food. Taste their bubbly cava or any red or white wines, and don’t forget about Vermouth!
