Although the title says it all, I would still like to share that we had a great time at Moti Mahal. Not only was the food tasty but the owner was such a nice, warm hearted man that you would want to visit this place again!

The curry had chunks of rat meat in it to my utter shock, the staff there was very rude on being told... More

Staying in El Raval

Neighborhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
