Tapas Route with BelleBarcelone!

BelleBarcelone’s Tapas route! Few of my favorite. When you have close family coming all the way from Singapore, you want to spend a good time with them as well as show them the very best of Barcelona. Barcelona is the city  of modern art, home of great Picasso, Gaudi, Dali or Miro; Barcelona, the city of great shopping and Barcelona, the city of great tapas. Here are some of the tapas and drinks places we went to. They loved each of them, many tapas but different in each place; great Catalan gastronomy for non vegetarians and some good choices for vegetarian.
