It´s possible to have a great cheap lunch in Barcelona

Jump to last reply

For personal reasons, I tend to go often to Barcelona (actually, to one of the cities of the industrial belt surrounding the city), and see how popular it is amont foreign tourists (I´m a Basque). Ramblas and Boquería market area are now significant tourist traps, where you can find all kind of menus and food for all type of customers (even Basque pintxos, but they are far, very far from the real thing).

Quite surprisingly, the Gracia district goes almost completely ignored by tourists. It´s like a small SoHo district, full of real life and beautiful squares. And little cozy restaurants, offering excellent food at unbeatable prices. Last week I had a menu of the day for just ten euros, including wine. Three restaurants on the same street offered identical price. And the quality of the menu was just superb. For those looking for a different atmosphere, off the ultra beaten path in Barcelona, Gracia district is your place. Similar to Malasaña and Chueca districts in Madrid, but with a distinctive character.
