If you are in barcelona more than 5 days, you may prefer to stay in an apartment. Here you have the opportunity to go to the local market just round the corner, Mercado Santa Catherina and buy fresh seafood, meats of superior quality and fruit and vegetables. All at reasonable prices, and the atmosphere is fantastic. Take your shopping home and make the most delicious fish stew, steaks or whatever you feel for. The apartments are very nice, practical and located on a quiet little square with local atmosphere.
Where: Aparthotel Allada, Allada-Vermell 6-8 Barcelona
In El Born you find an establishment where Mediterranean cuisine conquers the diners with its innovative flavors.

A delicatessen shop which specialises in Jamon Iberica. They have more than 40 years of experience and you can taste the hams before you buy. A paradise if you love Jamon Iberica. The store also has other specialties, including foie gras.
Where: Jamon Iberica Rambla Catalunya 61, but you can also shop at the food market La Boqueria where there is a Jamon Iberica
“Old school” tapas bar and neigbour to the Corte Ingles at Placa Catalunya. Do not be fooled by the location and the slightly older decor. They serve excellent classic tapas at fabulous prices.

One of my absolute favorites when it comes to ice cream is Amorino. They make incredibly delicious ice cream and assemble the ice on the wafer as it was a rose. This provides an additional taste experience. Amorino I have visited both in France, Italy and now in Barcelona. Cool. The two Italian childhood friends Paolo Benassi and Cristiano Sereni founded Amorino in 2002 and they continue to expand their ice cream chain.
Where: Amorino, Carrer de la Portaferrissa 7, Barcelona
