Barcelona is certainly a place for foodies. Here you may indulge in tapas or pintxos, excellent seafood on a wide range of restaurants.
You should certainly visit the markets, as the food hall at La Rambla. But there are other places to visit to buy food, as one place Grete found, a grocery shop going back 100 years.
This deli was founded 100 years ago and is a shrine for foodies. Colmado Quilez is as far away from a supermarket as can be. Orders of caviar, anchovies, turrón nougat and regional wines are rung up on the original cash-registers.
Here you find the greatest selection of both national and international alcohol. One section devoted to dairy products with lots of great cheeses and sausages as well. And if you visit during Christmas you can treat yourself to one of their delicious Christmas baskets.

The Cervecería Catalana is the oldest tapas bar in Barcelona. It was recommended by our friend John last year, but we did not find it. This was however one of Gretes favourites, a must see for a foodie.
Here you get a wide range of tasty tapas and montaditos (small pieces of bread with tapas on top), and their Ensaladilla (like potato salad but better), which decorate the bar behind the glass.
