To talk about La Taguara, an amazing restaurant located in Born, Barcelona, first of all we have to explain what is the meaning of “Arepa”: According with the Wikipedia definition, an arepa is a dish made of ground corn dough or cooked flour, popular in Venezuela and other Spanish-speaking countries. But, if we take the definition from the point of view of those who have tried, we could say that is a fantastic, healthy and unique dish.
La Taguara is a Venezuelan restaurant specialized in arepas with all kinds of ingredients such as chicken, tuna, meat, cheese, avocado etc. The place is really cozy although you have to eat standing. The atmosphere is really cool with good music, colorful mask and typical Venezuelan decoration.Our favorites dishes in La Taguara are “La pelúa” (meat and cheese), “reina pepeada”(chicken and avocado, “sifrina” (chicken, yellow cheese and avocado) y la “Catira”(Chicken and yellow cheese).

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.

It is possible to sit inside and enjoy the view, but the real enthusiast will still take a seat outside. You don´t have to be afraid of the cold because the tables are equipped with heating stoves, which also adds to the atmosphere.
The restaurant is well known for its seafood, which they prepared very professionally, so it is not a big surprise that there is an rich assortment of seafood and paella to be found on the menu. It is also possible, if you want to relive the moment, to take food home with you from the restaurant. You don’t have to worry if you are not a real fish enthusiast, Chipiron also offers great half chickens or steaks with potatoes. Definitely something worth trying! The service itself is friendly and helpful. Outside you'll get a warm welcome and you will be guided to a table, you don't even have to have a reservation. You don't speak Spanish? No problem! It might take a little bit longer, but the staff will try their best to give you the best service possible. Sunny terraces by the sea, private rooms and cozy corners, make El Chipiron a great place to relax and enjoy great food.
