Agua, Barcelona…seafood lover’s dream

Thanks to the city’s proximity to open waters, seafood has always been an important part of the Catalonian diet.

Situated directly along the boardwalk, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, not too far and a beautiful stroll along the sea with the W Hotel. The menu covers the Mediterranean basics with fresh, eclectic seafood being the specialty.

Let’s start with the one bad dish. The paella was very salty. Everything else was great. It’s as if the best of the Catalan market has been brought to your plate. Even my friend in the group, a notorious seafoodie, was overwhelmed. The sangria de cava was the star. Drinking it was smooth, light, refreshing and exhilarating. Back off, mojito!

Agua is a fantastic choice for Mediterranean seafood. This is the true truth as I say it as it is…

Mercat de Sant Josep de la Boqueria, Barcelona…a must!

The place is so gorgeous and coloured and lively I could see it again and again and enjoy it every time as the first time. Do keep in mind that this is not only a market to come and buy, but also to enjoy the pleasure of wandering around. Everything is just so colorful and delicious looking.

I always buy freshly squeezed and concocted fruit juices which are amazing and so cheap! Breakfast every morning here (the bread feels like it’s out of the oven straight into our mouths) is a must.  La Boqueria’s best feature may be its huge fresh Seafood Section. However, other food items are also available. For example: many kiosks sell typical Catalan and Spanish foods, including famous Iberian hams.

This is one of my favourite places in Barcelona. If you go to Barcelona and want to feel and taste the local culture, you have to go here. This is the true truth because I say it as it is…
