Fodor's Expert Review Mercat Princesa

$$ Born-Ribera Eclectic

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

The ancient exposed-brick walls and cozy nooks of this compact tapas market are home to 17 different food stands. Located one street behind Carrer Montcada and the Picasso Museum, it's a unique space that offers a round-the-world snack selection including Basque pintxos, sushi, gourmet fried eggs, and pizza. An added plus: it's an oasis away from the tourist trail. If you're lucky, you might stumble across one of the market's regular beer and wine tasting events. Thursdays feature live music or a DJ.
