El Nacional. 

If u haven’t already been, you’re definitely missing out. The high end “food court” of Barcelona in the heart of the city. (Passeig de gracia)  Where social and cultural life meet, el nacional not only has an inviting atmosphere but traditional recipes prepared in high quality. 

You can pick from 4 different restaurants:La Braseria, La llotja, La taperia, & La Paradeta. Decided on La Taperia for the first stop & I’m glad that I did. This unique dining experience where they have “verbally announced” ala cart options, make u want to stay longer to find out what’s next on the menu. Some of the few things I got to try. Very tasty indeed. 👌🏼 (fried artichokes with honey, seafood paella, olive oil cod fish & tomato bread, to end with a nice orange over orange)

The interiors: for an interior designer to be in a spot like this, it’s Disney land for our eyes. So much detail and thought into each place. From hanging birdhouse lamps to vertical gardens and a warehouse filled with greenery contrasted with much texture, patterns and mosiac tiles! You’re eyes get full before u even start to eat. 😋This is definitely a must see when in barcelona. 🇪🇸


Flax & Kale ðŸƒ

Flaxitarian” is what they call this new healthy lifestyle. This stylish and trendy spot in Barcelona makes you feel that eating healthy is doable. Whipped Coconut creme yogurt fruit bowl and vegan chocolate coco chia bars | avocado toast and their version of scrambled eggs with porchini. 🍃🍐🍳

From food to interiors, this place has it to a tee. This outdoor patio is a perfect place to have your healthy meal. 

There’s something about toilets in Bcn! Check out this super chic bathroom interior, the contrast of white subway tiles and plants! Gotta love that. ✌🏼️Burp, time for a selfie. 😬

When in Barcelona. 

They say BCN 🇪🇸 has one of the best food choices! & im actually starting to believe that.

 Let’s start with something as simple as going to their local mercato (market) and picking from a whole variety of good eats. Welcome to LA BOQUERIA. (In the Philippines, the wet market, the sosyal version of CARBON!) haha 

This is a place to find not just tourists but different type of food selections from fish, meats, tapas, salts, chocolates and even fruits. You just really want to try everything! It’s definitely a must do when your in Barcelona.

Do not miss the local eats! COD fish- bacalao! Mussels & of course- THE PULPO 🐙🐙 Spend your weekday afternoon with a glass of sangria while eating tapas. In this warehouse type interior. Exposed with all the different type of smells. Barcelona you are growing on me everyday. ❤️❤️
