Tapas and Sangria in Barcelona

Saturday, June 13, 2015

Whilst staying in Barcleona, we had to take advantage of their local dishes. So what a better way to close the first day of my hen/bachelorette party, than to go for tapas and sangria with my girls.


Excited from a long day in the sun, we all came back to our hostel to freshen up and get ready for our evening meal, as we were going to Cachitos, a tapas restaurant located towards the top of Rambla de Catalunya - close to the Passeig de Gracia metro stop. 

We decided to walk, as it only took 15 minutes from our location, through the busy and beautiful streets to admire the architecture.


When arriving at the restaurant, we decided that we wanted to eat outside the restaurant (something which I love about Barcelona) but before being seated we made our way to the bar to order ourselves a jug of Sangria. 


Walking into the bar, we were greeted by beautiful sprays of red carnations and against blackboards with cartoon pictures and offers in them. 

Once our table was ready outside greeted by our lovely waiter for the evening who informed us about the best dishes on the menu and suggested a fresh white fish that was new to the menu.

We decided to opt for two tapas dishes each and then a huge chicken and seafood paella to share for our main. 


What more can I say? This tapas was incredible. From garlic prawns a to monk fish to omelettes to cheese. We pretty much when through the entire tapas menu and shared dishes. These cost around €4-8 euros a dish, depending on what you go for.


Next up came our paella, which we really didn't need as we were so full from the tapas.
