Barcelona Eat Local – Food tour
Get to know the Catalan cuisine and two of Barcelona’s upcoming neighbourhoods with Barcelona Eat local!
Sant Antoni and Poble Sec are two neighbourhoods in Barcelona that may not be on your to do list when you come here for a city trip. However they are hip and happening at the moment and for a good reason; they have a lot to offer! If you are not sure where to go and don’t want to randomly wander through the streets to find the interesting areas, here’s an idea…
Marina and Andre of Barcelona Eat Local know their way around in these two upcoming neighbourhoods and during a food tour they share their enthusiasm, knowledge and hidden gems with you. I joined the tour on a Friday morning and even as a citizen of Barcelona got surprised by the places they showed me and stories they told me! Poble Sec and Sant Antoni are amazing and full of history.
The tour takes more or less 3 hours and takes you to five different restaurants and bars where you get to taste typical Catalan dishes. Starting off at the famous Sant Antoni market you get a sense straight away of the local vibe. The first stop is at the market stand of a Catalan family, specialised in cod. Continuing the tour, you will be surprised with more regional gastronomy and all run by local families. Wether it is patatas bravas at an old local bar or crema catalana in a fancy Catalan restaurant, Andre and Marina have made sure all you get to taste is delicious. And although the dishes are often simple and straight forward (as is the regional cuisine), they all have a special twist to make it a unique tasting experience!
During the tour you get a small folder with all the addresses of the places you’ve visited and some extra tips of nice bars and restaurants. When I travel to a city I like to get to discover the local life of a city and this food tour is a great opportunity to do just that!
