Favorite tapas places in Barcelona!

So lots of you ask me “ Where do you go for tapas”?
As you know I am a vegetarian and it can get tricky. But here are my favorite spots in town. Small plates to share around a drink…
I have already done these posts and you can find them in my section of Guides.

·      Paco Meralgo is a cool bar but it gets busy. You should book in advance or wait for a table at the bar. Don’t miss their super hot bravas, Camembert coated with black pepper, salads, eggs, and the seasonal vegetables.
* On Muntaner 171- Tel: +34 934 30 90 27

·      From the same group, but in Ramblas is Bar Cañete. Their vegetarian options are more limited but sometimes you just need 2 things and a good glass of wine before carrying on. Both these bars are fun to be with a great ambiance.
* On c/Union 17 – Tel: +34 932 70 34 58

·      Lolita Taperia, another classic is fun, good products, great music . You can hang out till late with some great G&T. Bravas, Broad beans salad, aubergines, salads, cheeses … Don’t miss the best Caramel flan in town and the excellent "chupito" they serve at the end.
* On C/Tamarit 104 – Tel: +34 934 24 52 31

·      Sant Antoni Glorios has some excellent tapas as well and you can also get the famous Xampanyet to drink from El Born with some of their cold cuts. Mandu, the chef will prepare you an excellent vegetarianTapas tasting menu if you call in avance. 
* On c/Manso 42 – Tel: +34 934 24 06 28
·      Bar Gresca, is part of the gastronomic Gresca restaurant. The bar is more casual. Excellent dishes with seasonal vegetables, their "bikini" is vegetarian here, they put these black mushrooms “Trompetas de la  Muerte” instead of ham. They have excellent wines per glass, and their “Torrija” -Spanish French toast- is to die for.
* On C/Provença 230 – Tel: +34 934 51 61 93
·      Zero Patatero in the Born is of the Grup San Telmo. When I went it wasn't very happening and a bit empty but the dishes were great. Nice place to be while in the Born area. “Zero Patatero is putting the 0 Km food concept into practice in a unique, easy-going, accessible way, alongside natural and organic wines. Its local product-based philosophy places importance on extreme-season vegetables, without turning its back on organic meats and sustainable fish.”
*On Passatge Mercantil 1 – Tel: +34 938 55 23 04

·      Quatre Coses is a small tapas bar by my favorite pastry chef Oriol Balaguer. You get different dishes depending on the day, typical catalan dishes. Perfect for vermouth and something to “picar” ot a full meal. Not too many vegetarian dishes but it’s good product.  You also get his famous cakes and bread.
*C/ Consell de Cent 329 – Tel: +34 938 39 41 10

 ·      While in Gracia, you can stop for a Vermut at Bar Quimet and continue for tapas at Antuñez.

Calle Neptu 18 – Tel: 937 68 85 75
·      Aspic near Turo Park is great for tea time or for a drink or a light meal. Not too many vegetarian options but their Bravas are yummy. 
* On Av Pau Casals 24 – Tel: +34 932 00 04 35

·      Near there Casa Tejada is a sea-food restaurant, recently renovated and reinvented by the chefs Romain Fornell & Oscar Manresa. They hardly have vegetarian options, I went with some friends so just had some great bravas and a salad.
·      On Calle del Tenor Viñas 3 – Tel: +34 937 82 12 36

*The picture at the very top is bravas and wine stop while shopping in passeig de Gracia at the Vinoteca Torres.
