Although the famous Mercat de la Boqueria is flooded with tourists all day long, it is a must go destination for anyone visiting the city and enjoying food. Just a stone’s throw away from the Ramblas, which might also explain the never ending tourist stream, one enters a world made for gourmets and gourmands, consisting of countless stalls but also a handful of bars where you can have the freshest meals.

Maybe the first thing you need to do, especially if you haven’t had breakfast, is finding a place at a bar counter and ordering some food. Fish and seafood a la plancha, paired with a tortilla is a good way to go. We found a free spot at Bar Kiosko Moderno.
By the way, quite a risky job. These ladies must have a genuine love/hate relationship with the plancha cooktop.
