El Bitxo- A Pre-Concert Bite Never Tasted This Good

2 Feb

 On a quiet street  parallel to Via Laietana, EL BITXO (beet-cho) is a bite sized restaurant, located steps away from the Palau De Musica unassumingly tucked away on C/Verdaguer i Callis. 

With a  simple banner on the outside, one would never imagine the culinary treasures that are presented when walking by at first glance.  However, once  through the door all prejudices are thrown out the window .

This small restaurant hides a huge surprise when it comes to grabbing a bite before heading to the theatre. Moderately priced and carefully executed, every last detail is pulled together effortlessly.

From the handwritten menu on the side wall to the drink menu scribbled on the mirror and the friendly staff- El Bitxo is sure to blow you away, thanks to their gourmet menu and reasonable prices.

 On a recent friday night, I witnessed the locals stopping by just to say “hi” to the staff, give a quick kiss and continue on their way. The intimacy of this cafe makes it unique choice when looking to try something new in Barcelona.

EL BITXO- C/Verdaguer i Callis 9 < Metro>: Urquinaona
