El Taronget



Every Italian leaving abroad must know where go out eating excellent Italia food. Because there are Italian Restaurants almost at any corners, but often, when inside, from Italy you will find just the name.

Fortunately Barcelona offers some top level options for nostalgic diners and all Italian food lovers.

El Taronget Restaurant is a cosy, intimate, lovely place, located in a small street close to Avenida Diagonal in Eixample (left part): they based the menu on fresh pasta made off biological semolina.

So the most famous plate at El Taronget is Carrosello de Pasta: you can taste different combinations of fresh pasta and sauces, as ravioli with ricotta and spinach, ravioli with funghi porcini and shrimps or ravioli with radicchio, goat cheese and nuts and many others. They serve some spanish and catalan options as well: unmissable patatas bravas, or Moritz beer to go with the meal.

Every day they update on the Facebook page the diary menu: fish dishes or brownies you can't find every day. The legendary homemade tiramisu seems to be always available!

All ingredients are natural, fresh, and biological. You can chose the option you prefer: a cheap, healthy and delicious lunch, or a complete dinner with the famous Carrosellos (and all the menu to choose from)

Lunch: 3 Pasta options + main course + drink+ dessert = 11,00 euro Dinner: Carrosello de Pasta (3 pasta tastings) Gran Carrosello de Pasta (4 pasta tastings) Menu à la carte

LECHUGA Superpizzas

Try the best pizzas in town!

Today I am NOT going to introduce you to another Tapas restaurant out of the countless ones we have in Barcelona, neither to a Paella restaurant.. no! Today I want to present you one my personal favorites (and of a lot other people here) in Barcelona: LECHUGA superpizzas! Lechuga is located in Carrer dels Escudellers, right in front of the popular “Los Caracoles” restaurant. You can easily get there from Plaza Reial or Las Ramblas.

“Ahh and if you search for the best pizza place in Barcelona, go to Lechuga.. wait, u have a piece of paper and a pen?.. I will write u down the address.. yeah.. there u go and u definitely have to try the goat cheese pizza with honey.. its amazing, u will never forget it”

I don’t know how often I said that since I am living here in Barcelona.

All the pizzas in Lechuga are made with best ingredients and fresh out of the oven! The guys in Lechuga have created awesome toppings, like: bacon and barbecue sauce or goat cheese with honey.. and lately they also had pizza with salmon. Besides that you can get pizza with rocket, pesto, chorizo, different kinds of cheese, spinach, pesto, ham, tuna and so on. They also always have pizzas for vegetarians..with artichokes, courgettes, sweet corn, pepper, mushrooms etc. They also provide bottles with extra barbecue sauce, honey, Tabasco sauce, spicy oil and oil with herbs if you want to pimp your pizza a bit or can’t get enough of the barbecue sauce (like me). The pizza slices are pretty big there and you get one for 2 €. A can of beer, coke etc. or a water is just 1 €. The guys there are really nice and in Lechuga you can really see everybody grabbing a slice of pizza there – from business men in suits to skaterboys.

When you are in Barcelona, do not miss this place! And don’t forget: TRY THE GOAT CHEESE PIZZA WITH HONEY! ;)

By the way..Escudellers is in general a really cool street off of the Ramblas with a lot of nice bars there (f.e.” Ryans” and the “Tequila Bar” with headphones everywhere). At the end of the street you will find the famous Plaza de George Orwell.
