Last sunday I have travelled to Barcelona to celebrate my birthday and explore the city and now that I am back in lovely Hamburg I want to share some food experiences, sightseeing and insider tips with you.
I can defenetily recommend this beautiful apartment which we stayed in for 4 nights located in the area of l’Eixample. One can find a lot of restaurants, bars and supermarkets around the corner. Plus you just need to walk around 15 minutes to get to las Ramblas (the city centre).

Hungry, but still on the way to explore some sights?
This would be the perfect occasion to grab a baguette with ham from Enrique Tomas at the Carrer de Ferran 55 (he has several other shops in Barcelona as well). This ham is not of this world! No wonder that the most expensive ham costs 850€ per piece.
Ok, next on your list should be ‘Be chocolat’. Try the handcrafted Limón truffle. It’s devine! Address: Carrer des Banys Nous 17.
For my birthday we went to this hip breakfast spot. It’s called ‘Brunch & Cake’ and always completely booked. You should either call in advance or bring some time to wait. But it’s definitely worth the wait! Fresh Chia smoothies, eggs Benedict, huge bagels or banana bread and much more on the menue let my mouth waters. P.S. The banana bread was not just good looking 😍
Address: Carrer Enric Grandas 19
Ok, this is Chök – the chocolate kitchen and going to be the last one on my list for now. We stumbled upon this shop on the way to the market hall (which I am going to tell you a bit more about in my next Barcelona post) and could not resist to have a closer look. The Cronuts are topped with blueberry mouse, filled with strawberry jam or Nutella and they also have muffins, brownies and everything else that includes chocolate. We had some Pop Chök which was like a cream puff filled with Nutella and we could not stop ordering one after one haha. It’s a must when in Barcelona!
Address: Carrer del Carme 3
Now I need to get ready because my best friend is coming over for a beauty sleepover before I will head to Würzburg for a week.
And in my next post I will tell you something about the sights you should see and also the ones I was a bit disappointed about and of course some insider tips 😉
I hop you liked my post, xx
