Right around a corner we went when Miriam suddenly exclaimed, “Maoz!!!” She said she read about it online, about how it served amazing falafel pita pockets, so we made sure we didn’t give it a miss! So basically, You order a pita bread and You can fill it up any way You like, with whatever they have on offer (we asked the servers which ones were Vegan, and about 90% of the add-ons were)! Go crazy, but just be careful not to spill it all afterward. 😉 It sure was a really really really incredible, filling pita pocket, and at a reasonable price too!

Mercat de La Bocqueria

Mercat de La Bocqueria (pronounced “La BOW-KAY-REE-YA”) is huge, bright-coloured with the abundance of fresh fruits and fruit juices, lined with rows of toasty baked bread and we even spotted a little gem: a falafel stand! If ever desperate to cool down from the heat in Barcelona, this is the place to go — the smoothies and juices certainly hit the spot! (And gosh, they were so cheap!)

Bar Celoneta Sangria Bar

Bar Celoneta Sangria Bar | Vegan & Vegetarian was an easy favourite! We went many lefts and rights and backs and forwards before we finally finding it, but it was so worth it. Miriam and I shared tapas (aka. hummus) (pronounced “HOO-MOOS” in Barcelona) with a side of toasty, garlicky bread as an appetiser, a spinach-tofu-perfectly-spiced veggie burger for mains and ‘Nata raw con fruta del bosque‘ (in our opinion, a really good plant-based alternative for a vanilla pana cotta!) for dessert. We had a blast. ?

La Heladeria Mexicana

As we strolled along Barceloneta Beach, we kept spotting signboards directing us to La Heladeria Mexicana, where we could get quesadillas, burritos, smoothies, cakes, bread and even ice cream!! I was already so full after dinner at Bar Celoneta Sangria Bar, but You know as they say, we have a separate stomach for dessert, so I got myself a generous serving of vanilla ice cream made out of rice milk! It was neither too sweet nor too dense, just how I love it! What a pity that we didn’t have much time left in Barcelona, for we would have definitely wanted to have a meal here too. If You manage to enjoy a meal here, do let me know how it went — judging from their ice cream alone, I can imagine that it would be an amazing meal. 😉

Spanish Village


Just like how I mentioned in the ‘Mallorca Food Review‘ page, one can truly find paella everywhere, the Spanish Village included! So don’t worry, even as You explore this exciting part of Barcelona, You certainly won’t be left starving. 🙂
