We came across this absolutely 'typico' cafe/bar in the Barri Gothica quite by accident and you too will need assistance/directions from your hotel to be able to find it.Founded in 1930, with photos of the successive family generations on the walls, it manages to contain six tables,innumerable legs of Iberian ham and countless types of charcuterie.Patrons were all neighbourhood locals and the tapas were superb, as was their cava.
The son speaks a little English,put yourself in his hands; for the record, we had what he called a wonderful plate of "hard cheese', jamon of course and a divine plate of toasted bruchella soaked in olive oil with a pepper and garlic spread.Plenty of napkins are required!!
Highly recommended as a real Barcelona experience.
