What to Eat in Barcelona, Spain
Welcome. To absolutely. Gorgeous, Barcelona. Spain this is not our apartment although we really wish that at what. I'm. This videos over we're gonna spend the next two weeks roaming, all over the city in search of delicious, food come, join us we're going to show you what foods you just cannot miss out on when visiting Barcelona Spain. Damn. This, apartment, I mean damn. Let's, talk about that this, has been one of the most, overwhelmingly. Exciting. Foodie, experiences, that I've ever had because I kept thinking it as like you have to go to a specific place, to get like their top us which is like the most authentic and best way to do it when really you. Just got to go crazy you got to visit as many shops as you can you just gotta stop and you got to try whatever, they have they recommend and then they usually have a similar, version at another restaurant but, it's taste a little bit different and this place is one of our all-time. Favorites. This. Place is super. Cool to us the, first time we were here we told him that we're from Japan and he. Speaks Japanese, and we were able to order everything in Japanese, the sedima Spanish because our Spanish, is no, boy I know hello, welcome. To the world I get back home through my restaurant in Barcelona okay, konnichiwa. Watashi Japan, Tiki mask thank. You very much domani got the Visayas. And, we loved it love this place highly recommended, 10 out of 10 would eat here again well I supposed to wait for you because I have already gotten halfway through my meet croquette oh yeah these little magical cookies are scattered all over Barcelona, some, are filled with carne with meats I'm gonna pull with chicken some of them have like seafood inside of them we even had cod fritters with honey oh my gosh. That. Was one of my favorite things I'll have to show you guys the cod fritters for you guys for science. Super. Smooth it's just like this beautiful tight a kind of meat taste all. That. All. Over, that fish, fold it over all, your under, dip. It a little bit more. The. Right amount of vinegar just, kind of cuts through the fishiness but a lot of bad fishing greenie fishing. By. The way. Don't. Be afraid of fishing in here make sure you try it or you will regret your trip. I. Have. To talk about this because Martina, chocolate can claim chilies but she's. Not. To. Me. 107. Allege. I'm sure all, your clothes remember, that comparing. This because that's both these those people if they know what to compare I don't know some people are like publishing Chicago, and they need to see none of this you know who, knows point. Is this, is a child. But. Better like. The. Answer will be have so much more flavor than the herring the herbs and irrigate the olive oil how straight healing on your mouth. Now. One thing we didn't expect was how awesome, the public transportation system it is in Barcelona we paid ten-year-old for a 10, pass ticket it's a t10, and what it means as you approach, the subway system you, put it inside it'll, come out you, got to take it with you when you go pass, on through and then when you leave you don't have to use it again this has been fantastic for getting us all over the city to, the Gothic quarters. To. A girl. Wow. All. Right sir. Don't. Thank. You so much live, super. Fresh, one. Look. At the steam. I. Know. That, everyone is gonna be like if you go to Barcelona you, have to have yourself some churros but more. Amazing, than that was, this bakery, that we found which it's not a secret it's a very. Well-known establishment in, Barcelona. All. These locals, in it and they have the, most amazing. Chocolate. Croissants, and Simon. And I, might. Have had one every day. They're, gonna have some valid dancing. If. There's one word of advice that I could give you when you come to Barcelona it's. Kind of for the same job and have, these amazing. Chocolate. Croissants we've had so many of us this, is our favorite. Thing we ate in all of Spain I didn't even know that they made chocolate croissant you always hear about churros, move aside, churros. These, chocolate, croissants. There. Are three, sections first. Is. This glorious. High. Quality, chocolate, right here. It's, delicious. Chocolate, with, the readiness of the croissant and in the middle you have a. Gorgeous. Chocolate oh my. God come to Barcelona go, to fall in the same shop and have the chocolate croissant, go early in the morning on the top in the middle still melty, it's.
Unbelievably. Good for, those of you that saw our livestream and, if you haven't you check it out the word of advice I gave there is very similar here this, place has, old people working in it and this, place is amazing these will people know their respect. Your elders especially in Barcelona cuisine. Mmm. Now I'm, not saying I don't love the, chocolate croissants here because let me tell you we've had one like every single day and I love them but you know what I ended up liking a lot more and I didn't even know about it it was Bruno's inside. It's like this magical, eggy French. Finish. So. The softness, of the doughnut it completely, balanced out by this like bright, crunchy. Almost caramelized. Sugar and when you dip it in your coffee the, light spongy, texture whoa. Will like absorb, the coffee perfectly, and then the sugar on the outside will balance out the bitterness of the espresso I mean it's a match made in heaven. Mmm. Try. A boonie all and every, Baker you see them in. What. I love most about this place is the. Aesthetic, it just feels like a cozy diner, full, of like local, people just, sitting at the bar I love if you look behind the counter you see all. These glasses and on top of them is just a tray of pastries you just like point to random stuff or you try it and I haven't had a single bad thing here, everything. We've had has been brand new has been surprising, to us and just, delicious, Spain, your, pastries, are out of this world or, is this just Barcelona, maybe we have to go to Madrid and see what kind of pictures they have there as well. So. Simon and I have come to the conclusion that, every. Street in Barcelona is beautiful, whether it's the Gothic quarters with its you know ancient ruins, and perfect condition. Or. If it's the downtown area which smells, good all the time it makes no sense. Telling. You like it's crazy like look at what's behind me right now. That's, just too beautiful man it's too beautiful. Girl. Girl. Zero-zero. Can. See into the shaft I mean. I know people in Europe are how lewd laughter, these. Simple, folk home regarding. How elevators, work guys every. Person elevator. Is solid human guardian Leviosa, it's just confusing we don't have to do any of this this is what steampunk is for us right girls like modern, and. That. Could house easily, magic. Wands. Staircases. Sconces. Okay. Let's talk about Paia we've heard a lot about hi Ian about how Spain is famous for it but we also heard that you're not supposed to eat Aiea and Barcelona, because it's actually native to Valencia. And they don't do it well in Barcelona but let me just say the, pie area that we've had here is, actually, really yummy even if it's made just for tourists as a little poor strapping, it's, delicious. And if they have better paella and Valencia, holy, smokes. I really, need to go to Valencia to try it out so whenever you hear about people saying oh a void, this because it's not local still, try it anyways this might be my only time in Spain am I gonna go here without trying paella, that, I'm definitely, having some and here, at blue they actually have some really good stuff.
When. You come to Barcelona, make sure you take advantage of the lunch specials, which give you the starter. And the, final course. And. A dessert for like usually about 15 euro boom does it for 13 with, a very hefty poured glass of wine and great pie yeah I think you should mark it down. It. Started today is. A bean stew it sounded so simple on paper but. What they should have said is, grandma's. Hearts because. This just feels like the most wholesome. Hearty. Grandma. Food ever it's a thick. Bean stew. Lots of tomato flavors and really, deep smoky sausage, in there it's so warming. On a gray day like this I love. This place today. I'm enjoying an avocado with, prawns inside of it and then I'm getting a veal and vegetable, student, for lunch I'm happy, you. Look happy girl I feel happy you, look so pretty also I feel pretty, happy thanks. For marrying me oh yeah. Now. That's not to say that all paia in Barcelona, is great because we've, tried a bunch and some, of it is really. Bad some of it is really really bad I'm evil, no Simon what was bad I mean you know like. Though, rice, was undercooked and. Super grainy sauce, tasted, very, very. Briny, and fishy the flavors, were all wrong nothing was right this place though has, a very. Well-balanced. Paia just, right amount of creaminess the rice itself, it's, cooked to a point of tasting creamy. Hmm. This. Is honestly a great, paella you could taste all the seafood eNOS has, a really, good creamy. Amazing. Taste I fell. In love with I ate from the fresh rose I think that one things we discussed about a good paella, is that. Like. Just give me a second oh my gosh oh my, gosh I love it just love, this place it definitely tastes like than a stock in this one is made out of Chron shrimp. Tails and bits it has more of a prani taste to it and it does a fish taste so if you don't like things that are fishy there, paia add bloom is not fishy or prawn, either yep and, look at those put mussels, oh my gosh, look, at those muscles I had a nickel every time touching. Simon's arms look. At that oh yeah, girl. I'm. Eating it. Are. You need all that Empire, that you wasted all the way. Clean. Up with your. It's. Clearly a super, beautiful market, and it, has just so, many things to offer you they've got meat, they've got poultry they've got seafood they've got bars you can have top offs you can have kava you can get chocolate you can get candy I mean really it it has it all, Wow. Yeah. Thank, you. Say. What I love, we. Did this in Australia as, well I. Love. Fresh oysters. Right. Shucked out of the shell yes please yes Lord. Ooh. Ooh. That. Is a briny oyster Yama, Eve. Yes. That was delicious I loved it so two more quiet your. Goal yeah. Yes. Please. Well. I'm just having a delightful time in Barcelona before, we go shopping for our livestream, video we're gonna get some stuff in the marketplace it's a packed market there's tons of markets all over Barcelona, so you don't have to come this one we're just enjoying a quick meal and I love these little fried anchovies. Greet them completely whole head, tail everything, and it really reminds me of delicious, grilled fish we haven't were in Japan that are over the fireplace. Alright. Guys. About. Squid, that's right I said shot with the heart eh I don't know why calamari. Eat, gah there are a lot of people that have left us comments on our sushi video saying how much they don't like squid how gross it is if you come to Spain you have to give the shot I've had tiny baby squid that word lightly sauteed, in olive oil with loads, of garlic and lots of herbs I had strips little, pieces with little tiny tentacles, and this is my first time in two weeks to, have another kind it has herbs it's been salted and peppered and doused, in delicious local olive oil that's been gently, we'll have a little bit of a BBQ responded, it is so creamy, and smooth, and sweet, it, is a sweet, it isn't, gross and, you guys have gotta give it a chance try some, squid, Luhan explain please. Didn't.
Really Know about this tomato bread before coming, to Spain, but, it's pretty much just like much tomatoes, on delicious. Fluffy bread with, olive oil, think, of it as like, non. Trashy, ketchup, okay. Hmm. Non, trashy, ketchup so, so good. This. Has been something that I wish. I knew about but was happily surprised remove, something that I have never, really drank before then we came to Barcelona and discovered that people have things like house remove coming out of like a delicious, cask and every, single place has like a different flavor there's different kinds of remove available, if I could describe it to you in a simple way I'd say it's kind of like the flavors of a mulled wine it's got raisins, and currants and cinnamon. And nutmeg and, it kind of like herbal. It's almost like sangria boils. Down to like a very dense liquid, but really, you just got to try yourself ask for a glass of vermouth on the rocks and I'm, excited about Tina sent you and. They'll be like what who's that I. Know. Exactly, how to describe this flavor and I'm not sure if Martinez gonna like the description she might cut this out of the video but here goes I loved. This growing up and all my friends thought I was weird. Buckley's. Tastes awful, but it works, I loved. Buckley's. Cough medicine, it was the most delicious refreshing. Herbalist. This, kind of tastes like Buckley's, without the minty, freshness, what. Are you talking, about crazy this, is just delicious. Cough. Syrup, okay so I'm, gonna leave this in I love this but don't listen to Simon this is my jam, for those of you weirdos, like me who loved Buckley's, cough syrup, you're gonna love vermouth, for, those of you that didn't love Buckley's cobster you're still gonna love them with because it's not exactly like it one of the things I notice about Barcelona is this seems like there are a lot of people, just chilling. And enjoying, what I assume, is their retirement. Like their people here in the middle of a Wednesday afternoon sitting. Down two dudes older, in their age and they just have a big bottle of wine and they're just sitting and talking and drinking I haven't, really seen that in other countries and if that's what retirement, is like I want, to live in Barcelona, sign me up this, is the good life the dolce, vita i think, that's how it said i am, so down this culture, speaks to me, on a spiritual, level. You. Have to come over. Amazing. Altogether, we spent two weeks in Barcelona, and there's. Just so much we got out of this trip we got to try new foods and, flavors we never, experienced, before we, got to see a beautiful, city and stunning. Architecture, that we Roisin we knew so little about, beforehand, but. Above all what, we got from Barcelona. Was. Fat turns, out if you eat chocolate filled chocolate covered croissants every single day you're gonna get a couple extra pounds around the waist so what you're gonna get over the next few videos is, some diet food, are you ready for some shirataki, noodles and turnips. I'm. Not, but you're gonna get it anyways this, is our second January that we spent in Europe, last year we did a food video in Rome this year we did one in Barcelona where, should we go next, year in Europe there's still so much food that we have to learn and taste. And show, you guys so, let us know in the comment section below and we'll start planning our January trip for next year. Say, Switzerland, Belgium. Switzerland. Who. Is a competitive, chocolate, country come on.
