plaça reial barcelona

Here I am, back from a few days with my friends in Barcelona! I did leave without notice, but I didn’t come back empty-handed :)

It was my first time there, I was attending the Primavera Sound festival, but I was also counting on that time to visit the city a little bit and soak up some sun (which didn’t happen, since it was raining pretty much every day). Oh and I really needed to have some serious fun with my friends, far away from our stressful belgian lives! Now I know evereybody’s been to Barcelona, but please let me just share with you some pictures and hotspots that we discovered there…

granja petitbo barcelona brunch

On the first day, after a very early flight, we went for brunch at Granja PetitBo: we had eggs, yoghurt, bacon, with some nicely perfumed tea and huge glasses of homemade juice. I really loved that place, the atmosphere is great and the food is amazing, for a very reasonable price.

Here’s a little souvenir of when we opened our third bottle of rosé cava in La Champagneria. It really is one of the hottest spots in Barcelona, where you can drink amazingly delicious cavas and tapas for less than 5 euros. Don’t be scared by the line at the door, once you’re in you’ll even be able to buy some bottle to take home with you!

On the last day, we had an orgy of tapas at Kino, a tapas bar located in Raval, near the MACBA. We hung out on terrace with a few buckets of sangria, plates coming in until we were very, very full. What a great way to say goodbye !

But also…

Clara, a mix between beer and Fanta lemon – very nice and refreshing !

– the Plaça Reial, my favourite place in BCN: it’s so pretty and quiet !

– La Mar Salada, a formerly starred chef’s restaurant in Barceloneta, where we enjoyed the 17€ lunch formula and ate like kings: seafood, delicious sauces, a beautiful paëlla…  living the life at a reasonable price !
