ate only once at pinotxo , was lucky to get a seat on a prime time afternoon. i was told by the server to come at 8am or 9 for the squid garbanzos and better seafood which sells out by noon. so i planned to do this every morning and go there early, but barcelona kicked my ass and woudlnt even start my day til 1pm.
i was staying literally arnd the corner from quimet y guimet, which imo was the best tapas iv had there.
so much to do here once u immerse urself in the local scene, i made friends from day 1 and they're all nice ppl. did the touristy thing only for a day.did the mandatory paella (squid ink) at a restaurant in barri de gracia . very nice neighborhood no tourists at all, a short ride from the city centre. but always make a reservation, fancy paella places get filled so fast. also try the calcot
def learn a few spanish phrases, if u want to hang at the cooler spot.
