From all the tapas restaurants in Barcelona I’ve been (posts to come), Cal Pep (Plaça de les Olles 8 Barcelona, Spain,34-93-310-7961) is the most seafood oriented. Clams, shrimps, cuttlefish, tuna is masterfully prepared according to the Catalonian tradition. Like most of the good tapas places, Cal Pep is crowded during lunch, but if you get a place you won’t regret. Even if it was cloudy outside, I felt sunshine in each of the Cal Pep tapas.
What surprised me most though how touristy all these places in Barcelona are. Well, I was a tourist too, but so as maybe 80% of the clients at Cal Pep or Inopia. I guess if you are searching for “gems” where only locals go, you won’t find them in Barcelona. After all, the food was very good, so who cares!
