This place is adorable, here you get all kinds of balls in different dishes: on the plate with a side or in a pita bread for example. There are both meaty options and vegetarian and vegan ones. Their chocolate balls are amazing!

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
