Casual dining...

Here are some casual cool spots I discovered these last few months: Bao Bao Barcelona; Bendita Helena, Auto Rosellon & Dirty Burger

  •  Baos are suddenly a craze over here. It is originally a Taiwanese street food filled with pork belly. We now have novel fillings as well as vegetarian ones. It is a sort of steamed bread, we could call them the Asian hamburgers. I really like the soft texture, the light airy experience while biting into it and discovering the mouth-watering fillings. We went to Bao Bao Barcelona in their newest spot in Sants. Their first one is located in the gothic quarter. They serve a  vegetarian one  filled with spicy aubergine and it has the perfect balance of flavors. Love the space, baos and their incredible nutella filled baos. Looking forward to the newest additions in their menu.                             The districts of Sants and Les Corts are fast becoming the newest gastronomic hottest spots in town!

  •     Auto Rosellon is the metamorphose of a car repair workshop into a cozy dining space. Situated in the Eixample it is the 4th project of Ronit & Rafa: Crusto Bakeries,) Toto Restaurant, The Spa Kitchen and now Auto Rossellon. It is great for breakfast or tea time with their wonderful homemade cakes. The menu consists in small plates made with seasonal products. It has quite an healthy menu with great salads & vegetables; perfect if you are vegetarian or not. The decoration is very cute, with their pots and open kitchen. The particular shape of the place offers an inviting setup with small tables or communal tables. It is a window to Mediterranean food in the cozy Enrique Granados lane. Enrique Granados is one the most picturesque lanes in Barcelona, with old buildings, trees, cozy corners, and a huge bicycle lane. Auto Rosselon is a small place perfect for any time of the day or night, they have great cocktails too!

  •  Dirty Burger Chicken Shop, is a joint venture with Soho House founder and Dirty burger creator.It isn’s in the same building of Soho House Barcelona, however it is nearby on the same Plaza. This naughty & juicy burger shacks has joints all over UK, in Chicago and now in Barcelona. A simple menu with burgers and roasted chicken, their veggie burger, made with a juicy Portabello mushroom is irresistible. Different and healthier than the other soya version of the veggie burger, accompany them with some curly fries and a salad and you will feel happy.

Opens everyday from 1pm onwards.
