Exotic Restaurants in Barcelona

The most fashionable neighborhood in Barcelona

Are you a lover of exotic and Asian cuisine and you can not stop looking for a Thai, Japanese or Vietnamese restaurant when you are on vacation in a new city?

In Barcelona you can travel around the world in a few hours ... not forgetting the paella and tapas, you can choose to enjoy good sushi, try the Vietnamese noodles or a hot soup from Ethiopia.

You will not have trouble finding exotic restaurants in the city ... the difficulty will be in choosing where to go !!

Here is a list of the restaurants that intrigued me most and I suggest.


ETHIOPIA

I start with the hardest to find ...! In Barcelona, there are only two Ethiopian restaurants which are, in fact, the only two restaurants in Catalonia.

One is Addis Abeba (Vallespir, 44 " Sants-Montjuïc) and the other Abissinia (Torrent de les Flors, 55 " Gràcia), both run by the same family, a brother and a sister.

In both restaurants you have to behave and eat like you do in Ethiopia: sitting at a low table and eating with your hands.

Everything is served on a plate, where you can find the injera bread, a spongy and round typical African bread made with teff flour, vegetables and meat stew. Some dishes are served only with vegetables and legumes, Ideal for those who eat vegan.

Some soups can also be very spicy, so beware!

LEBANON

There is a Lebanese restaurant that I recommend! It is called Ziryab and is located in the Born, Carrer dels Ases 16. The dishes are a fusion of the Middle Eastern and Catalan gastronomy, you can eat delicious creative tapas like prawn skewers or dates wrapped in bacon and drink quality wines. You can choose dishes by looking at the menu or also try the tasting menu. If you want to have lunch, you can like the menu of the day!

VIETNAM

In the Catalan capital there are many Vietnamese restaurants, from classic to fusion.

I love the dishes of the Vietnamese restaurant (Carrer del Torrent de l´Olla, 78 " Gràcia and Calle Comerç, 17 " Born). Here the Vietnamese dishes are really delicious!

You can choose between main courses with rice, vegetables and meat or taste their salads, soups or noodles .. and other delicacies like rollitos! There are also excellent desserts and drinks!

Take a look at the menu on the website to see what you can enjoy!

If you want to try the fusion cuisine, you can go to the Restaurant Me (Paris, 162 " Eixample Izquierda), where you find great Vietnamese dishes prepared with ingredients and products from other countries, such as Peruvian ceviche or the flavors of New Orleans and Catalan cuisine.

This is because the owner and his family have traveled a lot and have decided to bring all their experience and knowledge into the gastronomic cuisine of his restaurant.... Must go! There is also the menu of the day!

La Vietnamese Restaurant Barcelona

INDIA

Among the recommended restaurants, there is the Bembì (Consell de Cent, 377 " Eixample Dret), which combines Indian cuisine with Catalan cuisine... the restaurant is very cozy and the ideal is to try the tasting menu: a list of 100% Indian dishes That will make you travel, literally, all over the country! (The menu is about € 30).

Another great restaurant is the Mayura (Girona, 57 " Eixample Dret): the place is an oasis of bamboo, wood and there is also a tiny river .. that peace !! And the dishes are excellent, creative and a bit sophisticated.

If you want to go after dinner, you can also enjoy one of their cocktails.

Other cheaper restaurants that I recommend are Om India (Floridablanca, 130 " Eixample Izquierda) and Namaste (Villarroel, 70 " Eixample Izquierda). The first is specialized especially in the dishes of the Punjab region, the second offers a tasting menu also for vegetarians.

JAPAN

Japanese food... I could talk about Japanese food for days...

The city is full of Japanese restaurants, although it is not easy to recognize the real ones, with Japanese chefs cooking authentic dishes of the country. Among those I know, there are: A mica of Japò (Aragó, 104 " Left of the Eixample), small local with menus written (also) in Japanese and very tasty dishes. Wakasa Japanese Tavern (Nàpols, 287 " Sagrada Familia / Eixample Dret): how to travel to Japan without paying the ticket! So the others talk about this restaurant..this place is also small but has the best sushi in town! (So many people say). Tempura-ya (Muntaner, 153 " Eixample Izquierda): specializing in tempura dishes, it also offers many fish dishes, rice and vegetables ... try it!

The Neighborhoods of Barcelona: THE BORN

The Neighborhoods of Barcelona: THE BORN

The most fashionable neighborhood in Barcelona

Between medieval and Gothic buildings, the most modern buildings and bars, designer shops and colorful nightclubs blend perfectly.

Nowadays, this neighborhood is frequented mainly by tourists, who like to stroll through the vintage shops, the street markets, the workshops of artisans and then leave to party to enjoy the night in some of the clubs of the neighborhood.



What to see in El Born

In the neighborhood of El Born there are lots of things to see, including churches, museums and parks.

One of the obligatory stages is without a doubt the Basilica of Santa Maria del Mar, one of the most beautiful Catalan Gothic churches in Barcelona.

Basilica Santa Maria del Mar Barcelona

This basilica is also known because it has been mentioned in several books that take place in Barcelona, among them "The shadow of the wind " of Carlos Ruiz Zafón. It is located right next to the Paseo del Born and entrance is free. If you walk here, you have to visit it, it´s really worth it.

If the Basilica is to the south of Born, or towards the sea; To the north is the Palau de la Música Catalana, a jewel of modernism, so much that it has been declared an Artistic Heritage by UNESCO.

Designed by the architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner, the Palau can be visited only with a guided tour and, if you wish, you can also attend the concerts organized in the large hall of the Palau.

The guided visit to the Palau de la música is 18 € (children under 10 are free).The Palau is open every day from 10 am to 3.30pm (although I advise you to check the schedules on the official website), and the guided tours are organized in Catalan, Spanish, English, Italian and French.

Another visit essential for lovers of culture and art, is the Picasso Museum, located in Carrer de Montcada. With over 3,500 works by the artist, it is one of the most important galleries. The ticket costs € 11, although there is also the possibility of visiting the museum for free.

Parc de la Ciutadella Barcelona

And then, last but not least..the Parc de la Ciutadella! It is the urban park more loved by locals and frequented by tourists as well.

Unlike other parks, such as the Park Güell, this park is much more tranquil and perfect to spend some time relaxing , to prepare a picnic or just to lie on the grass listening to good music (because yes, there will always be some artists who Will accompany you with your guitar or djembe).


How to get around El Born

How to get around El Born

The best way to get around Barcelona is by bike.

A good way to tour the Born, is to take a bike tour with a guide of the city. With it you will be able to explore the most extraordinary and unknown corners of the neighborhood of the Born, and to take a typical tapas of the city.

If you prefer you can also visit the post to your air by renting a bicycle. You can choose between to rent a city bike or rent an electric bike.

Rent Segway in Barcelona

For the more daring you can rent a segway to walk the streets of this beautiful neighborhood of the city. There is the option to go on your own or book a guided segway Tour. It is highly recommended if you go with friends. You will have a great time!

Rent electric scooter and rent hoverboards in Barcelona

Where to eat in the neighborhood of El Born


Where to eat in the neighborhood of El Born

This is a good question! Because here there are so many bars and restaurants, it is very difficult to choose! So, let´s do this!

You like tapas? If you are a "pica pica", curious, interested in trying different local tapas of high quality, I suggest the Bodega Punctual (Carrer de Montcada, 22), the Bormuth (Plaça Comercial, 1) and the bar El Xampanyet (Carrer de Montcada, 22).

The Xampanyet Barcelona

The first two are quiet and quite large, especially the Bodega La Puntual: here you can sit at a table and eat your tapas with calm.The Xampanyet is the smallest and above all .. you have to have patience! It is one of the most famous and historic tapas bars in the city, therefore it is very popular for tourists as well as locals.

Do you like ethnic, exotic and fusion cuisine? I suggest two locals!

If you fancy trying the Vietnamese cuisine, I invite you to eat at La Vietnamese Restaurant (Carrer Comerç, 17); If you want to enjoy the varied and spicy flavors of the Arab world mixed with the traditional flavors of Catalonia, you have to go to the Restaurant Ziryab (Carrer dels Ases, 16). The experience will be a delight!

Hamburger Lover? Go to Little Bacoa (Carrer Colomines, 2), average price and a wide selection of dishes.

Continuing with the meat, I also recommend the El Foro Restaurant (Calle Princesa, 53): an Argentinean restaurant where you can enjoy excellent dishes. The price is a bit more expensive than usual (a dinner costs around € 25 per person).

Are you vegetarian? I suggest two locals! The first is the Cat Bar (Carrer de la Boria, 17), a fantastic vegetarian bar/restaurant with punk style, where the protagonists are the cats. It offers vegetarian and vegan dishes as well as craft beers. If you want to have lunch, here is the "menu of the day".

The second is the Restaurant La Bascula (C / Flassaders Nº30 bis): ecological ingredients, good selection of beers, many vegan dishes and also fruit smoothies with vegetable milk.


Where to go out at night in the neighborhood of El Born

Where to go out at night in the neighborhood of El Born

If you want to party with friends, in the Born there is much to do! In the Paseo del Born there are many bars where you can have a drink and dance to the rhythm of commercial house music or, perhaps, reggaeton.

On Paseo del Born, I recommend the Pipin Bar , for a good mojito and the Creps al Born bar , it´s a small place that usually gets crowded, but they make good cocktails. A little further away from the Paseo del Born, you will find: Alsur Café (Plaza de Sant Cugat), The Lime House (Carrer dels Carders, 31), Rubí , Guzzo .. there are many!

If you want to try something more elegant and sophisticated, I recommend going to Paraiso (Carrer de Rera Palau, 4): it looks like a normal bar, but has a surprise!

I like it because

  • The weather and atmosphere here are very good
  • The lively nightlife
  • There is always something to discover
  • The nearby Ciutadella Park


I criticize it a little because

  • It is one of the neighborhoods most frequented by tourists, therefore everything here is usually more expensive
  • It has lost some of its authenticity
  • At night some streets may seem dangerous (and I say "look" because they really are not ...)

Which bikes are worth to go by city?


Rent a bike in Barcelona

Urban bike

Evolved from the "Dutch bike" model, they are very visible for other vehicles, run more than enough and usually include all the necessary accessories. Its curved handlebar allows an upright and comfortable posture and allows us to see better. Make sure they have developments since some models do not have gears; And although the slopes of Madrid are a prejudice, they also have to be raised.

Rent a folding bike in Barcelona

Folding Bikes

Folding / Folding . Urban bikes are big and uncomfortable to combine with public transport or keep them at home. The folding does not have this problem, as they fit in a corner and you can enter with them metro, train or even bus at any time of day. Their way of driving is slightly different, and you have to get used to them in a few days. For this reason, there are two types of cyclists: those who hate folding, and those who love. They do not run less than other bikes since their developments are different.

Rent electric bike Barcelona

Electric bikes - eBikes

It is perfect if you want to visit Barcelona on a weekend since you can go from one side to the other quickly. Here you can rent all kinds of electric bikes.
The electric bicycle or e-bike, is a traditional bicycle, which is installed an electric motor to help in pedalling. How does the electric bicycle work? It consists of several parts: cycle (traditional bicycle part), battery, controller (sends power to motor), electric motor and pedal sensor. The energy comes to the motor thanks to a battery that is recharged in the electrical network but also can do it through a solar panel. At present, there are engines that are recharged on the road, downhill.

What bikes are not worth?


Rent a road bike in Barcelona

Road Bikes

They are bicycles made to run, not to circulate. They are very sturdy and have very thin covers ; A sewer grate, a bad pothole or a firm wet can make us fall. However, many experienced cyclists opt for these bikes to go by city, since with experience they are faster. If it is not your case, we recommend the previous models for urban cycling.

Rent a mountain bike in Barcelona

Mountain / MTB / MTB

They are often seen because they are the cheapest, easy to buy, those that are given away in kings ... but as the name implies, they are to go by dirt roads and cross country. They lack the minimal accessories, and their wide wheels with tacos brake us on asphalt, as well as the cushioning, forcing us to try harder. Many novices use them to start and end up giving up, ignoring that with a more suitable bike is circulated with less effort.


In both cases, the key is on the wheels. If you prefer not to buy a new bike, we recommend that you change the covers to wider ones with drawing (by road bike) or by thinner covers without taco in the case of MTBs. In addition, accessories such as fasteners or automatic pedals are counterproductive with urban cycling.


Rent mountain bike







The essential accessories

Bell. No matter how cheesy it may seem, it is an obligatory and terribly useful accessory. Not only will it serve to warn pedestrians who cross without looking or walk along the bike sidewalks, but also can avoid some fright: doors that open without looking, cars that rotate or that enter roundabouts ... A ring will prevent us a lot of accidents.

Fenders. If it rains a lot better leave the bike at home, but other times a simple downpour or a puddle can stain us from top to bottom. If your bike does not bring mudguards, put them on and you will not regret it.

Reflecting. They are obligatory at least red behind, white front and yellow on the pedals. You can also put yellow on the spokes.

Red white and red front light. Even if you think you´re never going to go out at night, you´ll ever be useful. The lights can be operated by batteries or dynamo, each with its own advantages.

Carrier or basket. It prevents us from carrying a backpack so we will sweat less. If it is necessary to carry a lot of weight, it may be advisable to attach saddlebags.

Other accessories that can come in handy, are the goat legs and chain protectors, which many city bikes already have as standard.

And the helmet?

The helmet is not mandatory on urban roads, but neither is prohibited. And although there is a potent debate among cyclists, everyone is free to use it or not .

Barcelona Mediterranean an Avant-Garde

Barcelona Mediterranean an Avant-Garde

Barcelona has to live it. Multicultural, artistic, modern, always with color and always at the forefront. Its status as a gateway to Mediterranean Europe underlines its cosmopolitan value, a city that lives day and night and is immersed in an unstoppable activity during all the seasons of the year.

Stepping on the streets of Barcelona becomes a true walk through history, art and design. We can start in the emblematic area of Modernism, from the Eixample, passing through the bustling neighbourhood of Gràcia and end up landing in the Gothic Quarter. We can also visit museums such as Dalí, or the Picasso, but what is characteristic of the city is that it is practically an air museum, dismembered, with its works of art distributed throughout the city. The culprit of it? Gaudí. Thus we find the Casa Batlló, the Park Güell or, of course, the unfinished Sagrada Familia.

One of the best ways to get to know Barcelona is by bike; Is considered one of the best cities for the two wheels for its infrastructures. For example, you can make the complete return to the city by the maritime strip and the Diagonal in just one hour. The bicycle allows to move quickly between different points and to enjoy each one of its corners and curiosities; Is a city that needs to have the eyes wide open since in any corner, the roofs or the walls, many artists find a support for their works. The good weather helps this, since most of the year, enjoy a pleasant time.

It is possible to be said that Barcelona mixes the best of the north and the best of the south, since being a privileged rich European city, it enjoys an activity and a festive and open atmosphere more Mediterranean than Nordic. This symbiosis is also evident on the palate: of the recognised and lauded Spanish flavours, Catalan is one of the most acclaimed: Catalan gastronomy is a mixture of rustic and avant-garde tastes in its right measure. Thus, the dishes absorb the good product of the Pyrenees and the balance of the Mediterranean diet.

Catalan chefs are considered the world´s most creative and innovative. The revolution of the Spanish gastronomy initiated in the Basque Country had its continuation and purification in Catalonia. It is remarkable the fidelity to the Catalan roots in the treatment of the food and its preparation with new techniques and instruments. In Barcelona, in addition to the many restaurants, the Boqueria Market is a good representative of this gastronomy, so up-to-date but so respectful of its origins.

But the food does not settle in an excellent way until you live the night in Barcelona. Keep in mind that the party works according to neighbourhoods; For example, the area of Maremagnum is more cosmopolitan and the nightlife of the Gràcia neighbourhood is more ´Catalan´. What is clear is that music is something that comes in the soul to Barcelona and if not, ask Joan Manuel Serrat, ´the Noble of Poble Sec´, one of the many talents born of this land of multicultural spirit.

HISTORY AND OTHER INFORMATION ON THE SAGRADA FAMILIA

I heard several comments about the beauty of the famous Basilica of the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, but I thought they were a bit exaggerated, I often have high expectations of something only to be disappointed by reality ... but this time it did not happen that way at all!

Emerging from the metro L2 purple or blue L5 (Sagrada Familia stop) you will find yourself in front of this symbol of modernist inspiration that is the Templo Expiatorio de la Sagrada Familia (original name of the church). Its beauty will make you forget the rising star of the escalators ... be careful not to fall! ?? Personally, is one of the most original architecture. I´ve ever seen in my life ... only a fool could think of building such a thing, but you know, the line between genius and madness is subtle and Gaudí´s master was definitely a genius.

Remember that in Barcelona you will find many of his famous works among which the Casa Batllo, the Parc Guell and La Pedrera; within the latter encounter a floor dedicated to miniatures that illustrate the design of the Basilica and other major works of Gaudí. If you are a real master of connoisseurs and fans do not miss this gem: Gaudí took advantage of the construction of the Colonia Güell to experience various architectural techniques applied later in the Sagrada Familia. If you want to make a visit to Cologne take the lines S33, S8 or S4 train Ferrocarril FGC from Plaça d´Espanya and get off at the Colonia Güell.

Back to us: perhaps not everyone knows that the temple of the Sagrada Familia is a work still unfinished today. The first stone was laid on March 19, 1882 to Spiritual Association wishes of the devotees of San José who assigned the task of its construction to Francisco de Paula del Villar y Lozano. The bad relations between the Association and the architect took shortly after the project in the hands of Antoni Gaudí.

The Gaudí Master dedicated to Sagrada Familia 42 years of his life of which 12 exclusively. The entire work from the origins to today was funded by private donations; it was thanks to a hefty injection of the crypt money received at the end of the construction work in 1889, which Gaudí entirely abandon the initial recall neogothic project to experiment with something new and never seen before: a Latin cross church large size and high towers impregnated with a strong symbolic universal inspiration; although in, fact it is a Catholic temple are not lacking abundant naturalistic references, you will realize when you enter the church you´ll feel in a light wood.

On the death of Gaudí in 1926 the works continued in fits and starts because of interruptions imposed by the Civil War, during which, due to an explosion, went even lost the original drawings of the project.

The work is scheduled to end in 2026 (begin taking flights that cost less) for that date is scheduled for completion in the third façade dedicated to the glory of the risen Jesus (the facades of the Nativity and the Passion you can say ended) and the addition of 10 more towers in addition to the current 8. The highest, dedicated to Jesus, will be 172 meters. The existing towers have a height of 115 m.

The Basilica was consecrated in 2010 by Pope Benedict XVI; during the celebrations, mid-Barcelona was carpeted by papal flags and the other half by the anti-papal movements insignia. For the occasion were completed by the completion of the inside work.

La Sagrada Familia is today is the most visited attraction in Spain and has about 3.2 million visitors a year, you understand now why it is better to make the tickets online and skip the line??? Read on.
