Speaking of food, there's one place I recommend visiting first, not a restaurant, not a tapas bar, not a sweetshop, but a market, where one can find the source of all foods! Maybe you already know which market we're visiting - the most lively and local market in Barcelona, El Mercado de la Boquería. One of the city's foremost tourist landmarks, located on the famous street La Rambla, it is the largest and most famous market in Europe, with its bustling crowds, dazzling fruits, and gourmet food for you to enjoy. Perhaps when you walk into the market, you will understand why it was named by CNN as one of the ""Top 10 Markets in the World"". The busiest time is from morning to 2 pm, just in time for lunch, so if you don't know what to eat, you can come here to browse, and you'll be able to solve your lunch without realizing it. You can find almost everything here, even those you can not think of,m like olives, all kinds of seafood, fruits, ham, cheese, ice cream, and many more, In this food tour, I take you to four stalls where you can buy all sorts of fresh fish, seafood, locally produced cheese, dairy products, and high-quality olives grown in different regions in Spain. Tips: Do not eat while walking, your wallet will unknowingly ""deflate"" (just kidddding). But please do pay attention to your belongings! Opening hours: Mon - Sat: 8:00 - 20:30 Subway line: Liceu (Green line, L3)
Bar del Pi is a typical tapas bar famous in Barcelona. (Also one of my favorites!) It is located in the very heart of the Gotic district, the center of the city. That means you can take a nice walk in the medieval gothic quarter after a nice meal! Bar del Pi offers not only the traditional tapas in the most authentic ways but also tasty Cava, a local wine, which is included in this tour. Two must-order tapas we recommend: La bomba, one of the most popular and delicious tapas in Spain. A potato ball filled with meat (traditionally we use meat, nowadays we use different fillings like octopus, pea, which we will try in another restaurant.), deep fried and served with a special spicy sauce. Pulpo Gallego, A Galician-style grilled octopus Tapa, originated in the region of Galicia where octopus is a specialty and a common catch for local fishermen.

This Catalan wine bar is definitely worth the visit!! It is also hidden in the historical center of Barcelona at Barri Gótic (The Gothic Quarter). Bodega La Palma, is one of many historical bars in Barcelona, with almost 100 years long history. It has a very unique atmosphere and locals love this place. So, if you want to get away from the touristic crowd of Barcelona, Bodega La Palma is the place to be. Here you can try both the typical Catalan cuisine and exclusive Spanish wines, vermouth, and cava. They have a wide range of locally produced wines of high quality. You may also find some tapas that are different from the ordinary tapas you eat in other tapas bars. What we recommend here is, to start with a cup of Vermut, have some Patata Bravas, and order different types of Croquettes such as Squid Croquette, Croquetas de Jamón, Pea, and Mint Croquettes. They also have stuffed squid, delicious ducks, and sweet peppers stuffed with mushrooms. If you're craving a dessert, order a lemon sorbet! it's worth it. Address: C. de la Palma de Sant Just, 7, 08002 Barcelona, Spain Website: http://www.bodegalapalma.com Average Price: 18€
Bar la Plata is a lovely and cozy small local tapas bar. But it is probably one of the most visited bars in Barcelona. If you want to feel the life of Barcelona and its residents visit Bar La Plata. They famously ONLY serve five tapas, crispy fried sardines (pescaditos), buttifarra sausage, a salad of tomato wedges and raw onions, or anchovies and olives and pan con tomate (Spanish tomato bread). Btw, be prepared to wait or stand, because there are six, usually crowded, tables! (It's cozy but small xD) The foods go well with (of course) wines! But do you know the special way of drinking wine in Spain? With a porrón glass. A porrón is a type of Catalonian container for wines, made of glass with a narrow spout that can be used for pouring wine into a glass, or—how's it's usually done in Catalan—directly into your mouth (without touching the spout). In this way, the porrón can be passed from person to person at the table, allowing everyone to share the wine! It's super fun! You must try it! Address: Carrer de la Mercè, 28, 08002 Barcelona, Spain Website: http://barlaplata.com Open hours: 11:30am- 3pm, 6-11pm, Sunday closed.
Looking for the best Jamon(Spanish ham) in Barcelona? I give you my best recommendation - Bodega La Tinaja, located near Passeig del Born. Come to this place to enjoy the delicious authentic Spanish cuisines. With the typical tapas, jamon and Spanish wine or good rum, I'm sure you will have a great time here! The tastiest dish is for sure the freshly cut ham (sometimes they do it right in front of your table!) Take your chance to try the dishes and drinks I recommend in this tour: La Sendal Wine; Ham(Jamon); Pan ConTomate, Catalan Crème (always the best for desert), RATAFIA RUSSET (Liquor) Address: Carrer de l'Esparteria, 9, 08003 Barcelona, Spain Website: https://www.instagram.com/bodegalatinaja/ Open hours: 7pm-12pm, Sunday Closed.
