Barcelona: Before going to Gracia, Còrsega Street

July 11, 2013

The boundary between Gràcia and l’Eixample is a good option before visit Gracia (or after!). Here you have some recommendations:

Bar Mut (Pau Claris St.,192): little bar of tapas, carefully made. There are a few tables, it is necessary to book before going.  It hides a  secret: If you go at night, ask about Bar Mutis and you could drink a cocktail in a charming place.

La Pepita (Còrsega Street, 343): its name is not a person, it refers to a kind of sandwich. You can taste there sandwiches, elaborated tapas and a home-made vermouth. It is open a from breakfast to evening!

El Tiet Taver Teca (Còrsega St.382) Small bar of tapas, you can find here “cazuelitas” too, more elaborated tapas than just bravas or olives.

Adonis (Bailen St. 188) In the corner of Bailen St. with Còrsega St., near Passeig St.Joan, you will find this bar, in which you can have a coffee, drink, some tapas and even a simple menu, because it is open all day. Two floors, decoration with books and some round tables in the street make the identity of this bar.

About restaurants:

Ramen Ya-Hiro (Girona St.,164): of course, you can eat there real Ramen (japanese soup with noodles). A very little place, always full.

Ferrum restaurant (Còrsega St.,400): Charming place, with high quality Mediterranean food and reasonable prices. A special mention to the cream of shrimp with almond foam and cockles. Highly recommended!

Thai Gracia (Còrsega St.,381): good Thai food and nice decoration. Good place if you want an exotic food in good company. Chicken curry is recommended.

And to end, two cocktail bars: Aigua del Carmen (Còrsega St., 400), next to Ferrum Restaurant (see before) a charming place to have a drink in a quiet atmosphere. The name comes to an old medicinal drink. And Stinger Cocteleria (Còrsega St.,338), in the corner with Pau Claris St., and next to Casa Comalat (modernist building with 2 entrances, one in Diagonal Av.,442, the other in Còrsega St.,316), it’s a traditional place to taste a varied offer of cocktails.
