Blavis restaurant revisited

Almost a year to the day since my last lunch at Blavis (C/Saragossa 85, 08006, www.restaurantblavis.com), my wife and I were in the area and unexpectedly in possession of a couple of child-free hours of liberty. We hadn’t reserved and we were lucky to grab the last remaining table at the end of the last lunch sitting…. Read more »

Les Tres a la Cuina — something different in Gracia

When is a restaurant not a restaurant? Les Tres a la Cuina (Sant Lluis 35, Barcelona, +34 931054947, Facebook page) in the Gracia district of Barcelona has only a couple of tables and is set out more like a shop but it still represents an interesting choice for those wanting a quick, light lunch.

New on FoodBarcelona: some tapas-sized reviews

In a perfect world I’d spend every lunchtime sitting in a wonderful Barcelona restaurant, taking notes and photos for the blog. The sad reality is that I spend most lunchtimes hunched in front of my computer with a sandwich or a plate of leftovers, working through to meet my journalism or copywriting deadlines.

The first in my new category of bite-sized Barcelona restaurant reviews is, appropriately enough, a tapas restaurant. Well, almost.

I’ve been back to La Taverna many times over… Read more »

Animal welfare: a new priority for Spanish shoppers?

Animal welfare in food production’s a difficult subject for me. On one hand it’s something I feel quite strongly about (it’s the reason I was a vegetarian for 4 years) but on the other I know it can make me a ponficating bore, and a hypocritical one at that. I’m guilty of not asking questions… Read more »

Lluís de les Moles

The area around Plaça Catalunya is something of a gastronomic desert. The vast majority of restaurants exist only to take money from the hordes of tourists that pour incessantly out of the underground train and metro station like water from a broken mains pipe. These disorientated souls stand confused and blinking in front of El… Read more »
