Where to eat
If you want to enjoy some really good tapas, for a really affordable price, go to El Velodromo! The place looks very fancy with the big red carpet, and the food is just incredible. Our recommendations are definitely the patatas bravas (because, you have to try them while you’re in Barcelona) and ‘’The Bomba de la Moritz’’ which is a home made beef and potato croquette with the same spicy brava sauce. It’s packed with people every night and the atmosphere is very pleasing. It’s definitely a local and unique experience that you have to try while you’re here.
