What It Is:
A famous little falafel shop with two things on the menu: falafel and fries.
Where It’s Located:
Ciutat Vella – between El Born and El Raval (Locations in Europe and the States too) | Google Map
Why We Love It:
If you’ve pushed your Spanish ham consumption to its limits, this is a delicious way to let your system recover with a solid vegetarian meal. The falafel is the best we’ve had in Barcelona, and it’s served with pita (or salad greens) and your choice of hummus or baba ganoush. Then there’s a self-serve salad bar offering a rainbow of toppings to customize your sandwich to taste.
It’s located on a super-touristy block near La Rambla. But it’s fun to get a sandwich or falafel salad with fries, and watch the river of people flow by.
- When there are two of us, we usually order one pita (or salad) by itself. Then couple that with a “combo meal” order, which also includes a drink (water, soft drink or beer) and some of their straight-from-the-heat fries to share. (The fries are huge, so you can totally share them.) So good, and also inexpensive.
