…Tanta, the Peruvian restaurant that the Peruvians go to… it must be good! I have never been to Peru and only have my Peruvian friends to guide me and this is where they come (when they are not actually cooking food Peru). It is a little ‘mini-break’ from tapas and a culinary journey to another continent. Delicious!
UN BESO: Tanta, Calle de Corsega, 235,Barcelona
… tucked in on the market square in Barceloneta, is this vintage vermut bar, open 09h-15.30h (& 19h-22h). On a Saturday or Sunday it is filled with the locals who come to have their morning vermut (of which there is a selection) and soda, accompanied by tapas… mejillones (muscles), or bacalao or jamón or bombas (potato filled with meat then fried). A delicious way to start Spanish Sunday (after the gym, of course!)
UN BESO: Bar de Electricitat, Sant Carles.

It contains an extensive display of rescued murals from the walls of Medieval chuches in the Pirineos, through to examples of Modernist Catalan art. It is fascinating and rich example of all art Catalan.
